Mary Van Cline: Selections from the Documenta Project

Mary Van Cline’s Documenta Project focuses on the glass movement artists, curators, gallery owners, and collectors.

Known for her role as one of the first generation of innovative glass artists, Mary Van Cline has often included her photography in her work. With her recent series of portraits, Van Cline documents the leading figures who helped to ensure that the studio art glass movement would thrive, including artists, curators, gallery owners, and collectors.  Van Cline began the project with her interest in documenting the iconic artists who established their international reputations beginning in the 1970s and 1980s. Because of her close relationship with her subjects, Van Cline captures the unique personalities that propelled the studio glass movement.
