Twelve months of exciting events…
APRIL 2 - DECEMBER 31: EMANATION 2019: WheatonArts. Emanation 2019 is on display through December 31, 2019 in the Museum of American Glass at WheatonArts! Emanation 2019 is the third exhibition of contemporary art featuring new works developed and created by artists invited to utilize the resources and facilities at WheatonArts for experiment based exploration. The results are displayed with an emphasis on each artist’s creative process. “The artists in this iteration of Emanation have not previously worked in glass, but are creative thinkers and problem solvers, who have embraced the opportunity to experiment in a new medium,” notes Julie Courtney, curator of Emanation 2019. The artists she brought to the project each have a unique perspective and aesthetic on the integration of glass into their works, creating powerful visuals (and even sounds) relating to invisible labor, prison incarceration rates, beauty in destruction, and “cartoon violence,” just to name a few. Artists participating in the exhibit are Jesse Krimes, Tristin Lowe, Martha McDonald and Laura Baird, Karyn Olivier, Richard Torchia, Allan Wexler, and Jo Yarrington.
