"Harriete Estel Berman: Master Metalsmith"

National Ornamental Metal Museum
USA United States of America
Each year, in conjunction with Repair Days Weekend, the National Ornamental Metal Museum presents a one-person exhibition of work by an outstanding American metalsmith. This year, the Metal Museum is honored to present a retrospective of the work of Harriete Estel Berman. As "the appliance lady", her jewelry and sculpture comment on and reflect the images presented to us by our consumer society. Harriete Estel Berman, as "recycling evangelist", works preprinted post consumer metal containers into art.
A frequent exhibitor at the Metal Museum, Berman's work is included in the permanent collections of the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institute and Temple University's Tyler School of Art as well as numerous private collections.
A CD catalogue will be available in the giftshop.
