Joshua asked me to get a shot of the big Chihully hanging with him next to it for scale. (He is looking up on the right side of the long green exhibit.)

 

Chihully uses real old rowboats and fills them with miscellaneous glass pieces - inspired by some Dutch boats he saw once.

 

I did not know till this exhibit that he was injured in an accident and lost one eye and partial use of an arm. Nowadays he designs and directs a team of glass blowers to do his works.

YAY! Now I see it's in Boston! We can do that! And it's glass - but with lots of lights or is it just that beautiful alone? Gosh, this is a sight to see! Thanks so much for sharing.

All three page are gorgeous!! Love the photos set against the black background. I have seen his stuff in a gallery in Vegas and it is breath taking.

Lovely layouts of the Chihully exhibit. The black really sets off the colors of his work nicely.

 

Chihully spent some time here in Omaha as an artist-in-residence and our art museum, the Joslyn, has several of his works now - including one really big one probably the size of that green one, but with lots of colors. I love it.

So, Chihully travels? This is all new to me - guess our art world isn't very expanded here in little ole' Hendersonville? :) I HAVE to see this!

Gorgeous, MaryLou! The black is very dramatic & your photos are just beautiful! I can see why you needed three pages.

These pages are amazing! He had an exhibit here in Salt Lake City when we hosted the winter olympics in 2002. I will never forget it. Your pages brought those memories flooding back. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing these pages. What treasures!

Your pages are really awesome. I used to play with glass and I know what talent is involved here. I would love to see it in person, and appreciate your sharing all of this.
