"ART GLASS" - The first ever exhibition of contemporary glass art held at Gallery North in Setauket, NY.

Sponsored in part by: The Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass (AACG).

In celebration of the 50th Annniversary of Studio Art Glass in America, Gallery North is excited to present "Art Glass" on view from June 22 to July 29, 2012.

This is the first time in its history that Gallery North has featured an exhibition of contemporary studio art glass.

"I know that studio art glass exhibitions around the country have drawn large crowds," said Judith Levy, the director of Gallery North at the outset of the exhibition. "I’m looking forward to a large turnout at Gallery North. We’ll be the only place to see contemporary glass art on Long Island.”

This exhibition will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Studio Art Glass movement in America and will acquaint the community with some of the extraordinary work in that field.

Included in the show will be sculptural objects, vessels and two-dimensional wall-mounted glass pieces designed by contemporary artists from the metropolitan area who create abstract, conceptual and realistic images.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition there will be talks with collectors who will clarify the appeal of art glass and with artists who are passionate about creating in this medium.
