HER VOICE

March 1 -  July 1, 2019

The visionary and boundary breaking women of the Studio Glass Movement are the focus of this exhibition entitled Her Voice. Among the artists featured are some of the most highly regarded artists working in the medium, including Ginny Ruffner, represented by two classic works from the past, and KeKe Cribbs, exhibiting new works that feature mosaic work, as well as new comers like Sarah Vaughn, showing her intense figures, Kate Clements presenting her kiln-fused work and Carmen Lozar who infuses her figurative creations with macabre humor.

 

The objects on exhibit were created using a variety of processes, many resulting in quite unique works. Pieces by Cassandria Blackmore in her signature shattered reverse painted glass, Lisabeth Sterling showing her deeply personal etched vessels, KeKe Cribbs also reverse painting on glass and Catharine Newell, who works in fused glass; suggest the kind of image making that preoccupies painters and photographers.

 

Tomo Sakai’s work contains imagery that harkens back to the culture of her native Japan. Her works in the show depict swimming koi.

 

Finally, there is the work of Charonne Ruth whose work fits firmly into the traditions of sculptural glass, taking advantage of the qualities of the material to create mesmerizing sculpture.

 

The gallery is proud to present this survey of artwork created by women working in glass.
