We are waiting for all museums to reopen, in particular to be able to visit Venice and American Studio Glass exhibition curated by Tina Oldknow and William Warmus, organized by Fondazione Pentagram with Fondazione Cini at Le Stanze del Vetro, San Giorgio Maggiore Island, Venice
"Richard (Dick) Marquis, a towering figure in the American Studio Glass movement, has been invigorating the art world for fifty years with artpiece embodying a rare combination of finesse, intellect, and whimsy. The sacred side of his work is expressed through his obsessive technique, and deep respect for history. The profane side is expressed through his irreverent use of his skills and visual iconoclasm (cheap knickknacks combined with highly crafted objects)”
Artists: 60 American and Venetian artists
Venice and American Studio Glass, will be open from 5 September 2020 to 10 January 2021, at Le Stanze del Vetro. This exhibition is curated by Tina Oldknow and William Warmus, former curators of modern and contemporary glass at The Corning Museum of Glass in New York.
Gathering together 155 outstanding glass vessels, sculptures and installations created by 60 American and Venetian artists, this exhibition will be the first to closely examine the influences of traditional Venetian glass-working techniques, as well as the Venetian aesthetic, on American Studio Glass made from the 1960s to the present.
Two artists represented by the Caterina Tognon gallery will be involved in the exhibition, as pioneers of the American Studio Glass: Richard Marquis and Toots Zynsky

IL TEMPO DELLA SCULTURA
BERTOZZI & CASONI IN MOSTRA A PIETRASANTA
Sabato 17 ottobre p.v. alle ore 18.00 si terrà il vernissage della mostra “Bertozzi & Casoni. Tempo”.
Le 19 opere, ospitate nella chiesa e nel chiostro di S. Agostino, scandiscono un percorso antologico nell’articolata opera dei due artisti, che nel corso della loro carriera artistica, hanno saputo conferire alla ceramica una dignità tale da farla entrare di diritto nel panorama delle arti maggiori.
This is the first project in the “Mestieri d’Arte e Design: Crafts Culture” series, which has emerged from a partnership with the Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte. An exhibition devoted to the excellence of Milanese arts and crafts, creating a fascinating dialogue between pieces by contemporary masters and some significant works from the Renaissance.
Richard Marquis: Keepers is a late career survey of a towering figure in the Studio Glass movement. Marquis is known for extraordinary technique, comic sensibility, bold innovations, and iconoclastic spirit. In his 50-year career, he has consistently been gleefully inventive and unfailingly smart. His work is collected and exhibited world-wide.
Objects in the exhibition will be chosen from the artist’s comprehensive archives of his art from the 1960s to the present. Marquis calls these pieces his “keepers.”
Organized by Museum of Glass in partnership with Wichita Art Museum. Guest curated by Vicki Halper.
