As part of Found Subjects, HCCC is pleased to invite guests to an artist talk by Sondra Sherman. In Found Subjects, Sherman creates unique brooches and necklaces prompted by the individual books she has collected over many years. Sherman cuts into the pages of each book, giving them new life as they house the jewelry they inspired.
