Czech Glass Now: Contemporary Glass Sculpture 1970-2004


Contemporary Glass Gallery
June 15, 2005 to December 31, 2005

Contemporary Czech glass has had a remarkable influence on the development of studio art glass worldwide, especially in the use of cast glass for small- and large-scale sculpture. Czech Glass Now featured the recent work of some of the most important artists represented in Design in an Age of Adversity: Czech Glass, 1945 – 1980, such as Václav Cigler, Jirí Harcuba, Vladimír Kopecký, Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová, René Roubícek, and František Vízner. All of the works in this exhibition were drawn from the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass.

This exhibition also includes work in glass by the next generation: Libenský's talented students and others who have risen to prominence in Czech glass, including Petr Hora, Marian Karel, Ivan Mareš, Bretislav Novák Jr., Jaromír Rybák, Gizela Šabóková, Jirí Šuhájek, Pavel Trnka, and Dana Zamecnikova.
