Emerge / Evolve: Rising Talents in Kilnformed Glass
April 5, 2019 — July 28, 2019
Glass Projects Gallery
Emerge / Evolve is a group exhibition that showcases rising talents in the field of kilnformed glass. Fusing glass in a kiln is especially rich territory for artists because it encompasses an enormous range of working methods.
EMERGE presents ten award-winning works from the most recent biennial competition, recognizing the work of students, early-career artists, and established artists from other media who are new to kiln-glass.
EVOLVE, a companion exhibition, identifies four former Emerge finalists who have continued to push the conceptual, technical, and aesthetic boundaries of their own practice.
Emerge / Evolve is organized by Bullseye Glass Co., Portland, Oregon
Join Carolyn Swan Needell, Ph.D., the Chrysler Museum’s Carolyn and Richard Barry Curator of Glass, for an exploration of the kilnformed artworks on view in the traveling exhibition.
An Evening with the Curator: Michael Endo on the Art of Kilnformed Glass
Guest artist Joanna Manousis will present kiln casting strategies for all skill levels using lectures and demonstrations.
