In the 1960s, glassblowing moved from the factory floor of industry into the artist’s studio via the Studio Glass movement. This evolution shifted perceptions of the medium and birthed generations of artists working and innovating in glass.
Artists as Influencers: Pathways in Glass features a personally selected roster of 12 artists by guest curator and founder of Water Street Glassworks, Jerry Catania. Catania’s impact on education and the arts in this region was immense. It was his desire to demonstrate the value of mentorship within the glass community, and its significance to the evolution of contemporary glass art through this exhibit. In honor of Jerry, a selection of his sculptural glass will also be displayed.
Herb Babcock, Brianna Barron, Tim Belliveau, Raghvi Bhatia, Percy Echols, Mundy Hepburn, Justin Hunting, Wes Hunting, David King, Charles Manion, Theresa Pierzchala, Kait Rhoads, Cassandra Straubing, Edgar Valentine, Eli Zilke; plus an honorary selection of artworks by curator Jerry Catania.
