BLUE MADONNATHROUGH MAY 8TH, 2022
GOTTFRIED HEINWEIN AND TRISH DUGGAN COLLABORATION

Gottfried Helnwein is an internationally recognized artist/painter who collaborated with Trish Duggan, an artist/sculptor, and together they created the installation called “Blue Madonna”.   Helnwein created the photo realistic paintings of the Madonna depicted by the Renaissance painters.  Duggan’s inspiration was the actual Madonna face, cast in glass from a mold of the original “Pieta” by Michelangelo and embellished with her own aesthetic.  This collaboration between the artists creates an inspiring homage to mothers from around the world.

LIBERATION OF LIGHT AND FORM GALLERY 2016
STANISLAV LIBENSKY (1921 - 2002), JAROSLAVA BRYCHTOVA (1924 - 2020), AND VACLAV CIGLER (1929 - )

Contemporary Czech glass has had a remarkable influence in the development of the Studio Glass Movement worldwide. In the 1960s, Harvey Littleton and Dale Chihuly were discovering the potential of glass as an art form, while Libensky, Brychtova and Cigler were already pushing the boundaries of cast glass sculpture. Because of the political status of Czechoslovakia as an Iron Curtain country, it was not until the early 1980’s that Czech artists were allowed to travel and teach abroad creating International awareness of their glass techniques, and traditions along with their artistic pursuits.

THE WATCHERS GALLERY 2017
BERTIL VALLIEN AND TRISH DUGGAN COLLABORATION

“The Watchers” installation is a collaboration between Swedish artist, Bertil Vallien and American artist, Trish Duggan. The imposing, inspiring, guardian-like figures act as modern-day representations of ancient sentinels. They stand silently overseeing and observing all that pass by. They are our keepers, our symbols of power, longevity and timelessness. They are the “watchers” of a universal force guiding our empirical journey of human existence.

JAPAN: INSPIRED GLASS GALLERY 210

Contemporary Japanese glass art is as striking as it is diverse, combining European glass making methods with Japan’s inherent sensibility of beauty. The glass sculptures capture a sense of independence for the artists because the history of Japanese contemporary glass is relatively short, with ceramics being the medium of longevity and choice for the culture. Nature and beauty find no boundaries for the expression of the Japanese artists in our collection as they use the glass material to capture their independent voice.
