She notes in the release that one of the artists, Ohad Zlotnick, who cre- ates three-dimensional metal sculptures of Hebrew letters, will give an artist's talk on Friday, March 14, at 2 p.m. For MASHterpieces, Berger explains in the release that selected artists were asked to choose a piece of art found at a Goodwill retail store. They then transformed those pieces by adding elements that are, according to Berger, "humorous, irreverent, ironic and totally unexpected while keeping the integ- rity of the original piece," the release adds. The Secret Life of Jewelry will include contem- porary pieces from internationally recognized jewelry artists, including Americans Christine J. Brandt, Andrea Williams, Cheryl Eve Acosta and Kathleen Carricaburu, the release notes. Works by two Israeli jewelers, Vered Babai and Edda Vardimon, will also be featured.
