Special Exhibit: Innovators in Glass July 1 – October 30
The Sandwich Glass Museum has launched a fresh consideration of glass art and experimentation in the 21st Century. “Innovators in Glass”, brings together contemporary works by twenty internationally noted artists, exploring the spectrum of technical and artistic possibilities innate to glass. Glass is an ancient medium, constantly being reinvented as it endures as a beloved, challenging art form and technically vital material.
Most recently, artists have explored newer experimental techniques when creating with glass. They test traditional boundaries, and lead us down new visual and perceptive avenues.
“Innovators in Glass” is a group exhibition of artists whose works illustrate sculptural beauty, as well as experimentation and technical ingenuity, demonstrating the complexity and versatility of the material. Techniques include blown, cast, engraved, and pate de verre glass, and include the use of computer generated optics as well as neon and plasma.
This exhibit showcases works by twenty internationally noted artists of the 21st Century, including Alex Bernstein, William Carlson, Nicole Chesney, Bernie D’Onofrio, Leckie Gassman, Terri Grant, Eric Hilton and James Allen, Mundy Hepburn, Peter Houk, Sidney Hutter, Jiyong Lee, Douglas Merritt, David Patchen, Wayne Strattman, Demetra Theofanous and Dena Bensen, Natalie Tyler, Steven Weinberg, and Norwood Viviano.
