Hurry up and visit this great exhibition “Looking at the Collection: The Elegant Vessel” at Huntsville Museum of Art. You still have time until April 4th, 2021 which is the last day of exhibit.
This exhibition includes historical and contemporary works from Museum’s permanent collection in glass, ceramic, metal and wood and explores the form of a cup, pitcher or a vase in various appearances – emphasizing its inherent beauty and its capability to serve as a metaphor for extended meaning.
Dante Marioni is inspired by ancient Mediterranean prototypes with his Leaf Vae pair.
Shane Fero’s flameworked glass Jade Moon Bottle strikes a balance between form, color, proportion and process, as well as Rude Osolnik‘s minimal turned wood Bowl and Benjamin Moore’s blown glass Selenium Red Interior Fold Platter.
Treasure, oak and stone wall piece by Pat Musick captures an essential element of nature in its fluid grasp.
Rossane Somerson’s Lucky at Love features a textured iridescent bowl held aloft, suggesting a metaphorical container for something that cannot be contained.
Exhibition is organized by Huntsville Museum of Art.
See you there!
