Glass Pioneers: Selected works by Dale Chihuly and Therman Statom
Momentum Gallery, in downtown Asheville, NC, is pleased to present a collection of works by contemporary glass pioneer, Therman Statom, and hand-selected glass pieces by Dale Chihuly plus an exclusive collection of vitreographs produced at Harvey Littleton's Studio in Western NC.
In conjunction with the Summer of Glass and the installation of Dale Chihuly's work at the Biltmore Estate, Momentum Gallery, in downtown Asheville, NC, is pleased to present selected works by two contemporary pioneers of glass artistry: Dale Chihuly and Therman Statom. The exhibition includes hand-selected glass pieces by Therman Statom and Dale Chihuly along with an exclusive collection of framed vitreograph prints by both artists, produced at Harvey Littleton's Studio in Western North Carolina. Littleton, another pioneer of glass who grew up in Corning, NY, invented the vitreograph process of printmaking from sandblasted etched plate glass in 1974.
Featured Therman Statom works at Momentum Gallery include translucent shadow boxes constructed from sheet glass, screen-printed with various imagery and combined with found objects; a large-scale painting of two playing cards within a plate glass shadowbox with found objects entitled Summer Queens; a solid cast-glass house; and works on paper.
Dale Chihuly's vitreograph, Chandelier, is presented as a companion to his glass chandeliers currently on exhibit at the Biltmore Estate (May through October 2018). We are also pleased to have two Dale Chihuly Seaform glass sculptures as part of this selective exhibition.
