The upcoming exhibition, Facets, at the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden will feature new work by established sculptor Susan Manspeizer. Her vibrant and deftly-formed, bent wood sculptures
celebrate nuance, progression and reflection.

Manspeizer’s work has long explored themes of resilience and maturation. This exhibition centers on stages of growth and maturation in women’s lives: childhood, adulthood, motherhood, family, aging, loss.

She treats identity shifts, joyful experiences, and moments of sorrow with equal attention as fleeting, fragile moments fraught with imperfections that beg acceptance. To quote the artist, “Life is beautiful, but filled with challenges. My work celebrates the fact that, as we mature, we continue to grow, reinvent and transform ourselves.”

The Hammond Museum was created as a foundation of support to promote global awareness and development of Eastern cultures with the West. It continues to reach out and support its wide community of artists and performers in the Greater New York Metropolitan Region.
