Meet the Artist: Michael Glancy
Lecture
June 20, 6:00 pm EST
Hear a lecture by artist Michael Glancy, whose abstract vessels explore nature, science, and metaphysics. Glancy’s pieces begin as cell-like patterns and arcane notations jotted down on paper. The objects slowly acquire form and texture, shaped and revealed by cutting, sandblasting, and the application of copper through an electroforming process in which the objects are attached to electrodes and placed in a chemical bath. Glancy’s pieces evolve from each other, and they are essentially organic. His finished objects—elegant, self-assured vessels grounded on a field, or base plate—have the demeanor of a figure in a landscape. Even though the work is abstract, nature is always present. Glancy studied glass with Dale Chihuly at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in the 1970s. Today, he is an adjunct faculty member of the metals department at RISD. His work is represented in many private and public collections including The Corning Museum of Glass. 6:00 p.m. www.cmog.org/live.

Kristina Logan – Artist-in-Residence Program at The Corning Museum of Glass

 

Artist-in-Residence Program Supports 14 Artists at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass in 2013


From March through November, The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass will host 14 Artists-in-Residence to experiment and research new techniques in glass. For one month, each artist will have full access to The Studio’s state-of-the-art facilities, and will be supported with technical assistance, housing, a food stipend and studio space. They also will have access to the Museum’s renowned Rakow Research Library, Museum staff, and the 45,000-object collection, which spans 35 centuries of glassmaking and represents the art, history, science and design of glass.


“This year’s Artists-in-Residence are national and international, emerging and established artists who work in diverse techniques in glassmaking,” says Amy Schwartz, director of The Studio. “A full range of materials, tools, equipment and opportunities will be available to them at The Studio to explore new ideas and concepts while fully immersing themselves in their art.”


Kristina Logan is amongst the 14 artists to be accepted. During her October 2013 Residency at The Studio, Kristina plans to combine flameworking and pâte de verre glassworking techniques with metalwork. Inspired by the decorated surfaces of reliquaries from the 16th century, the stems of goblets from the 17th century and the bronze armatures in Tiffany’s work, Kristina will focus her Residency on glass vessels and containers to explore pairing diverse elements together in one object.


Hear the October Artists-in-Residence, Barbara Idzikowska of Poland and Kristina Logan of New Hampshire, discuss their work and Residency projects during a Lunchtime Lecture at The Studio, on October 24 at 12:00 p.m. Free and open to the public; no reservations required. Please contact (607) 438-5100 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more details.
