Alida Anderson Art /Projects Gallery space at MIA 2010

Opening on January 06, 2010, the Miami International Art fair (MIA) and a number of Washington Glass School artist were featured and did exceptionally well. The art fair, held at the Miami Convention Center, showcased the WGS artists in “The Next Generation Pavilion” a curated section of young artists who are emerging on the global arts scene. The invitational pavilion showcases artists exploring art and culture using a wide range of innovative media including electronic installations, video, light and sound as well as more traditional materials. Represented by Alida Anderson Art and Projects Gallery, each of the WGS artists had tremendous interest and sales!

Here are some images of the pavilion:

Tim Tate’s electronic and glass artworks generated both sales and museum interest.

Tim Tates videos contained within his reliquaries were also projected on the wall – this one stars WGS artist Kirk Waldroff - whose cast glass prints are showing at NOVA’s Waddell Art Gallery.

Anne Plant’s layered landscapes sold out – Well done Anne!

“As a professional scientist, I explore glass as a medium because of the myriad of forms and combinations that provide opportunities for experimentation. Combining the clarity and luminosity of the glass with imbedded imagery creates both beauty and story.

These works are created with ordinary window (float) glass. These images are constructed by painting parts of the scene onto different layers of glass, which are then fused together.

In this series, the physical depth of the glass layers is used to enhance the feeling of separation, distance and atmosphere. Anne Plant
