Dual exhibition with IceHouse Gallery

A look at the enormous scope of work developed in the 50 years since the inception of the contemporary glass movement in California.

The Arts Center will sparkle with the infinite possibilities of glass. All that Glitters, a collaborative exhibition at Petaluma Arts Center and IceHouse Gallery, will include works by members of the contemporary glass movement that began in the San Francisco Bay Area more than 50 years ago.

Curator Kathleen Hanna brings pieces by seminal figure Marvin Lipofsky, who founded the glass program in 1964 at UC Berkeley, and the generations of glass artists he inspired. Artists include Bill Burch, Elin Christopherson, Erik Eiserling, Bella Feldman, Ken & Ingrid Hanson, Evan Kolker, David Lewin, John Lewis, J. P. Long, Susan Longini, Lee Miltier, Jay Musler, Bruce Pizzichillo & Dari Gordon, Jean Salatino & Steven Gandolfo, Randy Strong, Boyd Sugiki, Pamina Traylor, Mary B. White and Lisa Zerkowitz.

In Gallery 2 at the Petaluma Arts Center, Elizabeth Shypertt, co-founder of San Francisco’s important jewelry gallery Velvet da Vinci, will curate an exhibition of contemporary works by American jewelers, including Lucia Antonelli, Brook Battles, Raissa Bump, Sandra Enterline, Don Friedlich, Tina Frey, Susie Ganch, Karen Gilbert, April Higashi, Maya Kini, Christy Klug, Deb Lozier, Sydney Lynch, Bruce McKenzie, Kelly Nedderman, Wei Lah Poh, Erica Rosenfeld, Biba Schutz, Jan Smith, and Julia Turner.

The contemporary or studio glass movement differs from other 20th-century art glass movements in its emphasis on the artist as designer and maker, its focus on the making of one-of-a-kind objects, and its international character. It also is distinguished by the sharing of technical knowledge and ideas among artists and designers.

All that Glitters features delicate, whimsical, and complex – some very large – glass pieces, works in glass/metal sculpture, blown glass sculpture, vessel forms and cast glass. The exhibition opens Saturday August 15, 2015, with an opening reception to be held at both locations from 5:00 – 8:00pm. It closes Sunday September 27.
