Chicago’s UIMA Features Glass & Ceramics

Chicago’s Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art (UIMA) will present an exhibition that focuses on the mediums of ceramic or glass in contemporary art. 
Titled “Ceramics / Glass” the UIMA has selected some distinctive and expressive glass and clay artwork that challenges the boundaries between the traditional categories of craft, art, and design.

Michael Janis “Flying In Place”

Glass artists Brent Rogers, Alex Trommler, Aaron Wolf-Boze and Eric Bladholm will showcase works from Chicago’s Ignite Glass and Chicago Glassworks Studios

Nikki Renee Anderson, Robert Pulley are from Chicago Sculpture International and their works focus on the sculptural aspect of working with ceramics.

Eric Bladhom “Istok Industrija, Crveno (Eastern Industry, Red) ”

Michael Janis, a Chicago-born artist (now Co-Director of the Washington Glass School) will present his unique fused glass frit powder drawings.

Xavier Monsalvatje lives in Spain and works in traditional ceramic techniques which reflect industrial aesthetic designs reminiscent of the works of Mexican Muralists.
