> DESCRIPTION

This survey of contemporary studio glass will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary in 2012 of the Studio Glass Movement in America.  Studio glass describes one-of-a-kind fine art glass pieces made in individual studios rather than glass factories. This movement started in the early 1960s, when Harvey Littleton – today considered the father of the studio glass movement - built his own glass-making furnaces in a freestanding studio. Glass Act will showcase art glass representative of the full breadth of this defining period in contemporary glassmaking. This exhibition demonstrates the different ways in which glass is used as a medium for contemporary art. The display focuses on unique objects that explore ideas by the leading glass artists today including Dale Chihuly, Dan Dailey, Michael Glancy, Harvey Littleton, Concetta Mason, William Morris, Jay Musler, Toots Zynsky and others. Organized in conjunction with Habatat Galleries, West Palm Beach.
