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.

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.
- 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!

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Following KAC’s most recent exhibition: Artists as Influencers: Pathways in Glass, the KAC Members’ Show continues to consider pathways between artists, media, and meaning with the theme: Inspired by…. An integral part of the artistic process, inspiration is the spark that shapes new creative endeavors. Whether the evolution of an entire field as techniques and skills are passed from instructor to student (demonstrated in the Pathways in Glass exhibition), or the growth of an individual’s work as they are influenced by their surroundings, inspiration creates momentum for the artist and helps make meaning for the viewer.
Inspired by… showcases the work of KAC’s member artists and the people, places, and objects that have influenced that work. KAC member artists are invited to display one artwork created within the past two years that addresses the theme. All media are accepted and artists of every skill set are encouraged to submit in this annual celebration of local talent.
