01/01 – 10/19/08        Masters of Studio Glass Series: Joel Philip Myers and Steven I. Weinberg, Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, NY
In celebration of the major 2006 gift of contemporary glass to the Museum by the Ben W. Heineman Sr. Family, the Museum begins its series of focus exhibitions on the careers of individual artists represented in the permanent collection.
The first two artists to be presented are Joel Philip Myers (American, b. 1934) and Steven I. Weinberg (American, b. 1954). While Myers is known for his blown sculptural vessels that explore color, Weinberg studies optical illusion and reflection in his massive cast sculptures of colorless lead glass. Both artists are studio glass pioneers who have built successful practices, and who’s highly individual work has influenced many young artists working in glass today. (800) 732-6845;
