Brentwood Arts Center Showcases Glass & Clay: Other Worlds


Curator Jennifer Lindsay Brings together two sculptors, Laurel Lukaszewski (ceramics) and Joseph A. Corcoran (glass) to create site-­specific installations for the Brentwood Arts Exchange. Using collaborative installations as a way to intensify the viewer’s immersion in a transformative or revelatory experience, Lindsay will juxtapose works by both artists, from miniature to monumental, illuminating each artist’s individual responses to materials, nature, culture, and the environment.

The Exhibition will also highlight the durable influences of global traditions, and of the early twentieth century’s radical movements in art and design, on contemporary art and craft, and in the works on view.
