DESCRIPTION

John Darab’s fascination with glass began as a child – perhaps after a family vacation in upstate New York that included a visit to the Corning Museum of Glass. Later, while studying chemistry at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, he took a class in glass science where his love for glass from an artistic and scientific perspective blossomed under the tutelage of Dr. Minoru Tomozawa. 

About 15 years ago, he studied glassblowing at Bucks County Community College and since then has worked to create his own unique style. 

Darab submitted his work to the Hunterdon Art Museum’s juried Members Exhibition show. His work impressed juror, Dr. Kirsten M. Jensen of the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, who selected him to receive a solo exhibition at the Museum. That show opens on Sunday, Nov. 19 and runs until Jan. 7, 2018.
