DescriptionPaper Alchemy has a unique premise. Invited participants are provided with Thurmanite® for them to use in their own designs. Initially, participants were all metalsmiths but additional participants using a wide range of media are being added to the project. Through the unifying thread of Thurmanite®, exhibition visitors can see how each maker reacts and creates differently while all using the same material. Since Thurmanite® can be composed of a wide range of recycled papers, the content and aesthetics of each block of material vary widely, from maps to old textbooks to colorful construction papers. How Thurmanite® is carved or shaped also dramatically alters its appearance in a finished piece as well. The conjunction of these tremendously varied artworks create a unique thematic approach focused on an unusual and unique material. The following are links to each venue of Paper Alchemy. It debuted in Istanbul, Turkey, at Atelier Maya, June 18-30, 2021. The debut of Paper Alchemy in the United States was at Radford University’s Art Museum at Covington Center, September 6 to November 19, 2021. More venues will continue to be added as the exhibition continues to travel throughout the United States and internationally.
