No Glass Ceiling! Women Working in Glass, Part 1

October 14th, 2017 – March 5th, 2018
Palm Springs Art Museum, Kaplan-Ostergaard Glass Center

 

Women have played an integral part in the American studio glass movement from the beginning and in today’s global world of communication and collaboration, women continue to excel.  This exhibition, Part 1 of a series, begins to portray the multiplicity of working styles and concepts that women working in the fluid medium of glass, share with the rest of us.  

 


Women have played an integral part in the American studio glass movement from the beginning and in today’s global world of communication and collaboration, women continue to excel.  This exhibition, Part 1 of a series, begins to portray the multiplicity of working styles and concepts that women working in the fluid medium of glass, share with the rest of us.  Reaching from cultural or historical perspectives, past innovations, or sharing technical and aesthetic content, they are creating new approaches of versatility; holding, emitting, or reflecting light while creating works of extraordinary diversity, stirring beauty and intellectual purity.

This exhibition is organized by Palm Springs Art Museum and supported by generous funding from the Brautigam Kaplan Foundation.

Exhibition Season Sponsors: Carol & Jim Egan, David Kaplan & Glenn Ostergaard, Dorothy C. Meyerman, Marion & Bob Rosenthal, and the Herman & Faye Sarkowsky Charitable Foundation. The Desert Sun is the exhibition media sponsor.

Special thanks to the In-kind Sponsors of this exhibition: Austin Art Projects, Palm Desert, CA; Bullseye Projects, Portland, OR; and LewAllen Galleries, Santa Fe, NM.
