GLASS:The UrbanGlass Art Quarterly (#148)

The Fall 2017 edition of GLASS: The UrbanGlass Art Quarterly (#148) is on its way to newsstands and subscriber mailboxes with a major upgrade in paper quality resulting in richer colors, deeper saturation, and sharper detail with each photo.

Included in this issue:
  • An interview with Toots Zynsky exploring her creative ferment spurred by her recent residencies at The Corning Museum of Glass and Corning Incorporated.
  • A mid-career retrospective exhibition of Australian artist Kirstie Rea at the Canberra Museum and Gallery contemplating the artist's evolving relationship with abstraction.
  • Contributing editor William V. Ganis revisits the field of glass designwhich has in some ways been overshadowed by the intense focus on Studio Glass as a purely sculptural pursuit.
  • In our third installment of articles examining the history of UrbanGlass, we present "Brooklyn or Bust," the saga of the New York Experimental Glass Workshop's bold move of the out of Manhattan's Little Italy to a gritty section of Brooklyn just across the East River.
  • Finally, we present an excerpt from an essay by leading glass scholar Rosa Barovier Mentasti on the iconic 20th-century glass designer Paolo Venini.
All this plus five exhibition reviews, a back-page essay on the history of Traver Gallery, and the latest news from the field.

Subscribe to the newly redesigned GLASS: The UrbanGlass Art Quarterly and don't miss a single issue.
