Exploring Transparency - Invitational Art Glass Exhibition
Dubuque Museum of Art - Dubuque, Iowa
Ends February 12, 2006
"This exhibition focuses on the diversity of the use of glass for the individual artists. Whether it is glass blowing, etching, lampworking or the many other processes in use, there is a unique approach to its use in [each artist's] own investigations. The results are varied, but the constant remains there is a passion for the material." – Mark Fowler, guest curator (from the museum's website).
