UrbanGlass presents UrbanSparkle, an annual holiday exhibition of artists exploring the material of glass as adornment. In the spirit of the holidays, works selected for this installation embody the transcendent quality of glass to glimmer, gleam and sparkle. Against the backdrop of a seasonal shift to the cold dark days of winter, this exhibition features objects of ornamentation and light that only a material as spellbinding as glass can create.
Holiday shoppers in search of a one-of-a-kind gift or the perfect piece to wear during holiday party season can browse this special collection by expert makers.
Five artists have been selected for their nuanced mastery and distinctive approach to wearable glass. James Akers, Mary Ancel, Bianca Abreu, Penelope Rakov and Luisa Restrepo create objects of adornment that emanate their fresh explorations in the material.
Exhibition duration: November 18th – January 17th, 2020
