UrbanSparkle 2020

UrbanGlass presents UrbanSparkle, an annual exhibition of artists exploring the material of glass as adornment. What sparkles better than fresh designs that change how both glass and jewelry can be used and perceived? Five artists have been selected for their nuanced and distinctive approaches to wearable glass. Lenise Omeasoo, SaraBeth Post, Gillian Preston, Melissa Schmidt, and Roxann Slate have created objects of adornment that emanate their bold explorations in the material.
