Free lectures by Nancy Callan, Katherine Gray & Eun-Suh Choi: Wednesday, July 1

The Pittsburgh Glass Center hosts a bunch of events and has one upcoming this Wednesday, July 1st featuring several glass artists, one being Seattle-based Nancy Callan.

From the PGC site about Nancy:
Based in Seattle, Wash., Callan is highly influenced by pop culture and her work references sources such as comic books, children's toys and high fashion in her ongoing series.

"Rich in craft and technique, these works build upon the past to create forms and patterns that are both modern and playful. Callan represents a generation of glass artists that have come from the hot shops and classrooms of the pioneers of the studio glass movement, she herself studying, teaching with and assisting such prominent artists as Lino Tagliapietra, Ginny Ruffner, and Josaiah McElheny. The variety of ideas and shapes presented in the exhibition speak to her own unique voice in the field, and the ways in which the artist's sensibilities and the working of glass are inseparably linked," said Art Martin, collections manager and assistant curator for Muskegon Museum of Art located in Muskegon, MI.
Also this same night (July 1), along with Nancy there will be informal discussions with Los Angeles-based artist Katherine Gray & Rochester-based glass artist Eun-Suh Choi. Some totally amazing works by these glass artists!
