September 04-November 29

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

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.

Featured Artists:

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.

For many, recent shelter-in-place executive orders have significantly affected how and why they create art. As part of an intimate group exhibition, KAC’s artlab gallery showcases select regional artist projects that have been created as a result of the 2020 executive orders for shelter-in-place.

Projects reflect: 

  • Innovations in materials due to limited access to supplies
  • Shifts in content or concepts as a direct result of shelter-in-place
  • An increase in time available to devote to artistic practice, resulting in new work

THIRD THURSDAY: SHELTER-IN-PLACE VIRTUAL PARTY

Join artists from the Shelter-in-Place exhibition in a virtual Zoom party during the first Third Thursday of the season on September 17! Mix a craft cocktail, hear stories behind the work, gain insights into the artistic process, and celebrate our community’s ability to overcome challenges with creative talent! Advance registration is required for this free virtual event. Participants will receive a link to join the Zoom tour upon registration.

Third Thursdays happen every month! Watch and discuss film clips, hear first-hand accounts from artists, or engage in a conversation about the art on view in KAC’s galleries – check out other Third Thursday events here.

ONLINE EXHIBITION

In addition to the artists whose work is on view in the artlab, more regional artists are featured in this special Shelter-in-Place Online Exhibition. If you’re not able to visit the artwork in person, you can enjoy all of the work from afar in this virtual exhibit!

HUMAN INTEREST: FOUR FIGURATIVE SCULPTURES

June 18-October 17

Artist Charlie Brouwer brings to life poetry, whimsy and human emotion amidst the contemporary landscape through his figurative sculptures. He is an artist in search of the beautiful, true and good. These elements are evident in the four sculptures selected for this intimate outdoor exhibition, Situations change to Human Interest which draw upon childhood memories, rites of passage, and spirituality.

Brouwer and his wife Glenda live in Floyd County, Virginia. Living on 30 acres of land, they offer a mile-long sculpture trail to any who wish to make an appointment. It is his goal, especially in the current moment, that all enjoy the restorative qualities of art, the outdoors and contemplation.

Being Home, 2016
The first outdoor sculpture in my “Homebody” series. Sometimes it seems that the best part about going away…is the returning home again.
When the Stars Begin To Fall, 2009
Biblical imagery and the experiences of slavery gave birth to the spiritual that inspired me to make this sculpture. Another line in the song also could have been the title: “My Lord What a Morning”.
He Rowed His Boat Around the Shoreline of His Memory, 2014
When I was a child my grandpa lived on Lake Macatawa in Holland, Michigan. He had rowboats, and I learned to row. This is when I first experienced going forward by looking back.
Becoming2020
Change is in the air – something calls us to leave something behind, and we leave.
