DISTINCTIONS IN GLASS : Peter Bremers, Martin Janecký, and Harue Shimomoto
August 2 to 26. Gallery Reception August 2.6-7:30pm
We gather together three very different artists, Peter Bremers, Martin Janecký, and Harue Shimomoto, to highlight the diversity of technique, form, and aesthetic which glass allows the maker. Bremers returns to the Schantz Gallery with an entirely new focus on monumental cast glass sculptures—abstract, monochrome references to landscape and space. Martin Janecký, a new artist to the Schantz Galleries from the Czech Republic, is a modern-day Augustus Saint-Gaudens who sculpts molten white glass into naturalistic, emotive busts and figures. Artist Harue Shimomoto manipulates glass threads into sculptural tapestries, mingling glass with fiber arts and employing a clean and precise aesthetic to capture the essence of the seasons.
