Embodiment Juried Exhibition October 6 – November 19, 2017 http://washingtonglassschool.com/embodiment-exhibit-at-pittsburgh-glass-center
The Pittsburgh Glass Center (PGC)and the 3 Rivers Glass Beadmakers (3RGB) present “embodiment,” the first jewelry and wearables exhibit at PGC.
Entries were received from around the world including Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, the United Kingdom and the U.S. for this juried exhibition. Sixty-nine works of art were selected for exhibition including 10 artists along with several collaborators from Pittsburgh.
Objects on display range from necklaces and wings to a crown and cape and reflect a variety of glass techniques. All of the art included in “embodiment” was chosen based on craftsmanship, aesthetic beauty, originality/creativity, and realization of the concept of embodiment meaning a tangible or visible form of a specific idea, quality or feeling.
PGC Executive Director Heather McElwee said,” The jurors looked for a diversity of art work and unusual content or untraditional subject matter, plus the use of different materials and techniques.”
