Glass art show set to open at Exhibit A

Post Time:Oct 10,2015Classify:Industry NewsView:340

Exhibit A’s Glass Invitational 2015 goes on display Saturday, and the downtown Corning art gallery will host an opening reception for the show on Oct. 17.

This is the sixth year Exhibit A has hosted a show celebrating glass as a versatile art material. A teaser from gallery director Ann Welles:

This year’s five featured artists utilize glass in surprising and engaging ways. Included is art that combines glass and sound by Karen Donnellan and structurally striking works by Amy Lemaire that are sculptural objects that can also be worn. Keith Lemley deftly pairs disparate materials, neon and wood, for an installation piece titled The Woods. Angus M. Powers uses a variety of glass making techniques to create artworks that draw attention to everyday phenomena. And Wil Sideman references common objects to create textural works that are narrative in nature.”

The gallery is open noon-6 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, and noon-4 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The reception is set for 5:30-8 p.m. Oct. 17 and is free. Exhibit A is at 22 E. Market St. For details, go to www.exh-a.com or call 259-1008.
