Playing with Fire: Artists of the California Studio Glass Movement at the Oakland Museum
October 26, 2012 to March 24, 2013
The Oakland Museum of California, together with over 120 museums across the United States, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the American Studio Glass Movement with an exhibition of contemporary and studio glass by California artists.
Micaela van Zwoll, independent curator, selected artists whose contributions to studio glass were nascent in California, and led by Robert Fritz and Marvin Lipofsky, founders of glass studio programs at San Jose State University, California College of the Arts, and University of California (Berkeley). Contemporary glass on view includes work by Oben Abright, Latchezar Boyadjev, Kathleen Elliot, Bella Feldman, Jaime Guerrero, Taliaferro Jones, Michelle Knox, Susan Longini, William Morris, Jay Musler, Danny Perkins, Clifford Rainey, Cassandra Straubing, and Pamina Traylor, among others.
An exhibition catalog is available here and through the Oakland Museum of California. The exhibition was made possible in part by the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass, the Glass Alliance of Northern California, and sponsored by the San Francisco Chronicle.
