Audrey Wilson is an artist in high demand! Not only does she have a great show at North Carolina’s Bender Gallery, she has work in a show of artists of the Chrysler Museum glass studio that also opens August 1, 2014.

Virginia’s Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center (near Norfolk’s Chrysler Museum) joins with the TCC Visual Art Center to host a series of glass exhibits and programming that celebrate the studio glass movement. The two locations combine to offer artwork by instructors and past and present art glass studio assistants at the Chrysler Museum of Art Glass Studio and/or completed their studies in glass at the Visual Art Center, Portsmouth. Chrysler Museum of Art Glass Studio Manager Charlotte Potter’s work will be featured in “Personal Cartography” at the Visual Art Center.next.gen

The upcoming generation of glass artists – which includes our Audrey Wilson – will be featured at PACC in “Mapping the Next Generation”.

Chrysler Museum of Art Glass Studio Workshop

Christina Bothwell “Clockwork”

The Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, VA is offering an exciting new dynamic duo – everybody’s favorite ceramic/glass artist Christina Bothwell and our own Professor Pangloss (Panglass?) Tim Tate. The five day workshop runs from May 30 thru June 3.

Tim Tate “Dreams of Flying”


from the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio website:


Take advantage of a rare opportunity to learn from two working studio artists that have much to share. Discover the techniques and influences behind the works of Christina Bothwell and Tim Tate, both former winners of the Virginia A. Groot Foundation Award for Sculpture. Bothwell’s work often combines clay and lost wax casting in a figural narrative, while Tate’s art focuses heavily on mixed-media electronics and lost wax casting. Demos will include lost wax casting, open face molds, and casting voids in artwork. Students, whether beginners or experienced glass artists, will have time to work in the Studio, but will benefit most from the group discussions of each student’s work and how to advance to another level in expressing their creativity in glass.

Chrysler Museum of Art Opens New Glass Studio Nov 2

>

The Chrysler Museum of Art, is getting ready to open its new 7,000 square foot glass studio.
Artist Charlotte Potter has been hired to helm the new studio as it gets off the ground, scheduled to open to the public Novermber 2nd.

The addition of the Glass Studio enhances the Museum’s stature as one of the top three museums in the United States with an art glass focus. The reality of the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio was sparked from the interest and support base demonstrated during Art of Glass 2 – the region’s blockbuster glass exhibition in 2009 featured the Chrysler Museum, Virginia Arts Festival and the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia as major partners.

“The Glass Studio will allow our visitors to experience glassmaking and be involved in every step of the process,” says Bill Hennessey, the Museum’s director. “We anticipate this will draw people to the region to learn about glass, meet visiting glass artists and tour our collection. We expect this to be a significant educational component for the region—one that will allow us to further strengthen our partnerships with groups such as Tidewater Community College and the Governor’s School for the Arts. With more than a third of our 35,000-object collection devoted to glass, this is clearly a strong suit for the Chrysler. This Glass Studio will bring these works of art to life.”
