Meet the Artists: Joel Philip Myers and Steven I. Weinberg

November 1, 2007
Steven I. Weinberg - Whale Rock Boat #201019

Enjoy a joint lecture by studio glass artists, Joel Philip Myers and Steven I. Weinberg, the two artists represented in the first in a series of Masters of Studio Glass exhibitions. Both artists will present a short presentation about their work, then join together in a discussion facilitated by Tina Oldknow, the Museum’s curator of modern glass.

Joel Philip Myers explores vibrant color, as well as lack of color, in painterly, blown vessels. In contrast, Steven Weinberg focuses on the optical, transparent, and reflective qualities of glass in his solid, kiln-cast sculptures. Both are studio glass pioneers who have built successful practices, and whose work has influenced many young artists working in glass today.
