NC glass exhibit showcased at WCU

Written by 

art wcuglassThe North Carolina glass community will hold an exhibit from Oct. 28 to Feb. 1, at the Western Carolina University Fine Art Museum.

This exhibition will highlight the work of 23 artists, occupy three of the museum’s four galleries, and bring a series of glass demonstrations, workshops and lectures to Jackson County.

WCU has documented the development of the state’s glass community in the series of invitational “North Carolina Glass” exhibitions, initiated in 1974. The most recent North Carolina Glass exhibit, titled “The Next Generation,” took place in 1995 in the Belk Gallery at WCU. The year marks both the 50th anniversary of the development of studio glass in America and the 90th Birthday of North Carolina artist, Harvey K. Littleton, who is the movement’s founder. To celebrate these milestones, the Fine Art Museum is launching the largest and most comprehensive of the North Carolina Glass series’ exhibits to date.
