I saw a mind-blowing exhibit a few days ago while I was in Baltimore. It's called Materials Girls and features the work of 8 contemporary women artists. These women all explore the use of three dimensionality, uncommon materials and processes. Each has such a unique artistic voice, and yet the exhibit hangs together because it is built on the central idea of non-conventional use of everyday manmade and natural materials.
It's up until mid-October so you have time to see it if you're in the Baltimore area.
