VERO BEACH – Clearly Color: Glass from the Permanent Collection offers a dazzling cross section of American glass artists whose works are a study in contrast.
Beginning with Dominick Labino and Harvey Littleton, known as the father of the Studio Glass movement, the exhibition examines the discipline through works that celebrate the medium and material itself, as well as showcase the revival and innovation of traditional techniques.
The works in the exhibition also illustrate a variety of glass-forming technologies beyond traditional glassblowing. The pieces also represent both form and function – sculpture and use.
Clearly Color will feature 10 glass pieces and include artists such as Dale Chihuly, Benjamin Moore, Dante Marioni, Therman Statom, and Marc Petrovic.
The exhibit is an area museum officials have been working to expand upon. It started with a few pieces that were gifts and a couple other purchases.
The exhibit will run from Saturday, July 17, through Jan. 2, 2011, at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, 3001 Riverside Park Dr., Vero Beach.
