2018 Visiting Artist Series

This year we welcomed Brynhildur Thorgeirsdóttir, Amber Cowan, and Jenni Kemarre Martiniello to Norfolk.

Brynhildur Thorgeirsdóttir
April 27–29

Brynhildur Thorgeirsdóttir traveled from Iceland to share her glass casting process. She lives and works in Reykjavik, and has works in international collections including the National Gallery of Iceland, The Museum of American Glass at Wheaton Village in NJ and the Niijima Glass Art Museum in Japan.

 

 

 

Working in concrete, glass, sand, and cast iron in mostly neutral colors, Thorgeirsdóttir creates stark and rugged sculptures that refer to stylized landscape features, utilizing hard lines and geometrical forms that manifest solidity strength. Some of her works are incorporated into the actual landscape itself. Thorgeirsdóttir describes her solid rebar concrete block “mountains” as “the environmental art of the future.”

Amber Cowan
July 13–15

As part of our 2018 Visiting Artist Series, Amber Cowan gathered the colorful factory glass used in her work out of a portable furnace here at the Perry Glass Studio. Amber Cowan’s sculptural glasswork includes recycled, up-cycled, and second-life American pressed glass.

Cowan lives and works in Philadelphia, where she received her MFA from Tyler School of Art. Cowan has been selected for numerous prestigious awards including the 2014 Rakow Commission from the Corning Museum of Glass and a 2021 United States Artist Fellow in Crafts.

Jenni Kemarre Martiniello
September 29–30

As a contemporary urban-based Aboriginal (Arrernte) glass artist, Jenni Kemarre Martiniello produces a body of traditionally inspired works that pay tribute to traditional weavers and provide recognition for these ancient cultural practices. Martiniello draws inspiration from the beautiful forms of traditional woven eel traps, fish traps, fish scoops, and dillibags. She seeks to evoke the interplay of light and form found in those objects.

Martiniello’s work can be found in international collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, The British Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass.
