Connected By Glass | Dr. Karlyn Sutherland

The Corning Museum of Glass is pleased to welcome the public to a Connected by Glass lecture presented by Scottish artist, architect, and Fulbright Scholar, Dr. Karlyn Sutherland. In this lecture, Karlyn will discuss her work, including her yearlong Fulbright research residency hosted at The Studio and her current solo exhibition at Heller Gallery in New York. Central to Dr. Sutherland’s practice is a long-standing interest in architectural atmospheres and the bond between people and place. Her work uses perspective drawing and optical illusions as tools to contemplate and communicate feelings of detachment from place through suggesting spatial experiences that are inaccessible and unreachable. Dr. Karlyn Sutherland is inspired by the bond between people and place. Autobiographical in nature, her work explores this dialogue through glass and architecture, with a particular focus on how characteristics and qualities of space are capable of shaping our experience, memories, and sense of attachment to our surroundings.
