WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF WEARABLE ART
“There’s Tiffany and Cartier and then, there’s SCULPTURE TO WEAR”
– WHERE Magazine
“Adornment can exercise a profound influence on our bodies. It can reflect in our posture and body contour, as well as our movements, effectively causing a transformation in how we feel about ourselves, and how we are perceived by others. My creative statement is one that not only complements the physical body, but also allows for the interaction of the object with the wearer through transformation of the actual piece of adornment. I engage the wearer in the repositioning of various components, which transform the object, creating new designs to suit their need or mood of the moment.”

Lisa M. Berman, Acclaimed Expert Curator/Ambassador of Wearable Art, to be Featured at National SNAG Conference
– Boundless Media Inc.
After two decades, Lisa M. Berman, Visionary Proprietor of Sculpture To Wear Gallery seems to always be in demand. The Planning Committee of the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) invited Berman to be a featured presenter in their upcoming conference INSPIRE / ASPIRE – Virtual Gallery Crawl. The on-line ticketed event will be held Saturday, June 26th, from 6-7pm EST (3-4pm PST) and will feature Lisa as the curator and host of her Feel the Frill: The Ginsburg Gauntlet Exhibition previously hosted Dec. 2020 & Jan. 2021. Berman is including local artists John & Corliss Rose of 2Roses, Teri Brudnak and Judge Jayne Herring to participate as part of her LIVE session to field calls from the International audience, with an estimated attendance of 1,000 collectors, makers, curators and the media. Berman will present a 10 minute introduction of the exhibition, a curatorial statement and present select artist’s pieces. After Justice Ginsburg’s passing last year, the response by the community was overwhelming – artists were so inspired by the late Supreme Court Justice’s contributions, that they dropped everything on their schedule to make one of a kind pieces in less than 30 days for the show.
RBG is back! Fans of Sculpture To Wear, it’s your last chance to collect the AMAZING pieces from the FEEL the FRILL exhibition through June 26th. We are DONATING a portion of the Sales to SNAG (a Non-profit).
Sculpture To Wear Gallery has a 21-year history of curating and hosting poignant, cutting-edge exhibitions by award-winning international artists. In keeping with this tradition, we are seeking edge dwellers, truth-seekers, and history makers to participate in a timely exhibition honoring Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who “changed minds and made change happen”. The primarily on-line exhibition will feature wearable art collars similar to those worn by the Notorious RBG herself to challenge, “throw down the gauntlet”, evoke opinion, dissent, or non-verbal expression ushering a distinct message, often against the establishment. The honorable Justice Ginsburg’s Jabots “had a language of their own” that transitioned into “Collars of Dissent”, wearing each one with a deliberate “call to action” for Equality and Justice.
Lady Godiva – A Powerful Woman of Dissent
Lisa M. Berman
The first time I laid eyes upon the glorious horse, a sculpture, Lux Maximus, by Daniel Oropeza, I envisioned a photograph that was legendary and timeless with a contemporary twist. Capturing an image of Lady Godiva atop of a award-winning artwork was a bit irreverent, scandalous, and controversial to begin with, and when I started to research the true meaning of the legend, that’s when the ride really began. All too familiar with the tongue-in-cheek Halloween Costume with the long blonde wig and leggy nude who usually, just by default, earns the top prize, I thought there has be more to this cult fiction.
