Paper Alchemy & Thurmanite®: James Thurman & Friends

Thursday September 16 - Friday November 19, 2021

“Paper Alchemy,” is an exhibition focused on Thurmanite®, a unique composite material developed by metalsmith James Thurman. Thurmanite® is made of layers of recycled paper bonded together with an environmentally-friendly plant-based resin. “Paper Alchemy” debuted in Istanbul, Turkey, this past Spring, and the Art Museum will host it this fall at Radford University. “Paper Alchemy” has a unique premise. Invited artists are provided with Thurmanite® to use in their own designs. Initially, the participants were all metalsmiths, but additional artists using a wide range of media have been added to the project.
