UrbanGlass presents UrbanSparkle, an annual 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 distinctive and vastly different approaches to wearable glass. Alex Stanyon, Luz Arias, Nirit Dekel, Ope Omojola of Octave Jewelry, and Wes Valdez of BlobBlob Studios have created objects of adornment that showcase the range of the material and of contemporary jewelry.
Exhibition duration: November 12, 2021- January 14, 2022
Opening Reception: November 17, 2021 from 6-8 PM
