kiss.my.glass.sean_hennessey.artSanta Fe, New Mexico’s  William & Joseph Gallery presents “Kiss My GLASS” an exhibition featuring the glass artwork of OSAP‘s Sean Hennessey and Arizona-based sculptor Jason Chakravarty July 1-31, 2015. 

“Kiss My Glass” aims to showcase the innovative and intriguing glass sculpture created by these two narrative artists. Far away from the traditional blown glass vases, these two artists have created a body of work that makes one laugh, think and asks us to see glass in a new light – as a vehicle for narrative story telling in a three dimensional format.

Jason Chakravarty is a mixed media, object maker living in Arizona.

Says Sean Hennessey of his art, “The heart of my work is an examination and a suggestion of our identity in a world that places us in a struggle for harmony between our spirituality and our corporeality. My works contain messages of obstacles and of hope, of seeking and of enlightenment. I aim to create works that inspire and remind us of wonders and mysteries we have lost.  I primarily create wall relief sculptures that are representation and narrative. There is a feel of the past, but with materials and techniques of today.”

Sean’s combines cast glass, concrete, photography, drawing, light, vdeo, found objects and steel in his works. He holds a BA in Sculpture and a Minor in Philosophy from Berea College and also studied at the Institute for International Studies in Florence, Italy.  He has also exhibited at SOFA Chicago, John Hopkins University and was a featured artist at the National Institute of Health Gallery, as well as many select group exhibitions.

Kiss my Glass’ exhibition will be on display from 5-7pm during the month of July at William&Joseph Gallery

727 Canyon Road Santa Fe, NM 87501
