"Clearly Brilliant: A Decade of Pilchuck Glass School's Emerging Artists in Residence"
2000-10-07 until 2001-01-01
Tacoma Art Museum
Tacoma, WA, USA United States of America

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Pilchuck Glass Schools Emerging Artist in Residence program, Tacoma Art Museum presents an extraordinary review of 34 artists who participated in the program over the last decade. The exhibition will include bold works of glass art as well as the exploration of other materials as diverse as X-rays, bronze, video and steel.

The artists represented in Clearly Brilliant bring many themes and unique approaches to their work. Some artists make reference to objects you would see in everyday life such as Mitchell Gaudet who is influenced by the original risk-taking Pilchuck glass artist - Dale Chihuly. Gaudets Penance consists of glass figures hanging as if they were individual components in a chandelier hanging over a dining room table.

Other artists deal with nature and the human body, such as Lise Autogenas Spine series which uses glass to abstract the skeletal system and convey a sense of fragility of the human body. Celeste Staritas Untitled is made up of clear blocks of what looks like three giant ice cubes, with ghostly, opaque forms and shapes inside as you look deeper.

Clearly Brilliant artists find themselves not only on the cutting edge of glass art, but also in all other areas of sculpture. The exhibition is endorsed by the Pilchuck Glass School and curated by Greg Bell, Curator of Contemporary Art.

Support for Clearly Brilliant provided by the Frank Russell Company.
