Trompe L’oeil: New Works by Glass Wheel’s 2017 Studio Artists

Date: Aug 5 - Sept 1

Trompe L’oeil: New Works by Glass Wheel’s 2017 Studio Artists

Exhibition opens on Saturday, August 5 from 7-10PM

From the echoing sound of children’s toys to hyperrealist paintings and drawings, the works in this show will play with your perceptions of space, scale, and materiality. Diminutive glass figures, a collection of mirror reflections, and large-scale digital animations all need your input to complete their narratives. So please join us for the opening of this special exhibition featuring new works created by our 2017 studio artists!

Glass Wheel’s Studio Artist Incubator Program is awarded to 13 visual artists annually. It provides opportunities for research, experimentation and ultimately aims to foster creative innovations and new modes of working collaboratively. Through collaboration and monthly group critiques, many have found new methods, resources, and support to explore ambitious projects often outside the scope of their previous art practices.

Celebrate local art along with light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar by local favorite Handsome Biscuit. All works are available for purchase. This event is free and open to the public.
