Preston Singletary: Echoes, Fire, and Shadows
March 19, 2011–September 5, 2011
New York, NY
The first mid-career survey of the internationally renowned glass artist Preston Singletary (Tlingit) contains 54 works that illustrate the artist's evolution over the past two decades. Singletary's contemporary glass interpretations of Tlingit myths and legends are realized through a complex combination of artistic techniques and traditional forms. Highlights of the exhibition include Clan House, a monumental glass sculpture that references the interior of a Tlinglit longhouse, and a large-scale wall mural created by the artist especially for this installation.
Organized by Museum of Glass, Tacoma, WA. Presented by Alaska Airlines. Sponsored by Leonard and Norma Klorfine Foundation, Windgate Charitable Foundation and JoAnn McGrath. The exhibition is also being supported by a grant from the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass.
