Fresh Metals


Curated by Claire Webb

Seminar Room Gallery

This exhibition has been curated from the Dorsky's permanent collection by Metal MFA candidate Claire Webb.  




My name is Claire Webb (@byclairewebb) and I am an MFA student in the Metal program here at SUNY New Paltz. In the fall of 2020, I curated and designed an exhibition of jewelry and metalwork from the Dorsky’s permanent collection of contemporary metals. This is a virtual version of a real exhibition that is currently on long-term display in the Seminar Room Gallery. 

I created ten collections of objects that share similar aesthetic or conceptual threads. Over the next few pages you will find some information and insight into some of the works I chose to include, and why I grouped them in certain ways.
