ARTISTS AS INFLUENCERS: PATHWAYS IN GLASS

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.

IN THE artLAB: SHELTER-IN-PLACE

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

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 samples of each artist’s work from afar in this virtual exhibit! Find additional links, artist chats, and videos on KAC’s Facebook page.

DEX R. JONES: STORIED PORTRAITS

Influenced by the cultural richness of his Caribbean heritage and Pan-African studies, Dexter R. Jones unwaveringly removes the veil of self-conscious inhibition by eliminating preconceived notions of beauty. Instead, he masterfully reveals true splendor and regality, even amidst vulnerability.

Jones relentlessly pushes the characterization of beauty not often seen. Encompassing a mixture of texture, hues, flesh and heavy contrast in his editorial photography, his expertise in justly capturing women of vast shades is indicative of his strong matriarchal upbringing.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Jones works on artistic projects, editorial assignments, and creative collaborations in both photography and film. Storied Portraits is Jones’ first solo show outside of New York and features 20 images produced in large-scale, further enhancing the vibrancy, strength and appeal of his artwork.

Artworks on view during Dex R. Jones: Storied Portraits are available for purchase through The Shop at Krasl Art Center. View a complete list of artworks for sale with pricing here. To make a purchase or for additional information, please email giftshop@krasl.org.
