Curated by Elizabeth Essner

New York-based artist Shari Mendelson interprets ancient glass using the most modern of materials: throwaway plastic bottles.  The artist’s vessel and animal forms are glasslike inventions, but they hew close to their early antecedents—a result of Mendelson’s deep fascination and careful study of the field.  Glasslike, a solo exhibition, will explore the artist’s current body of work in context with its key source, ancient glass.
