The Corning Museum of Glass Supports Eight Artists-in-Residence in 2011

Corning, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) February 16, 2011

Eight artists will research and experiment with new techniques and subjects as 2011 Artists-in-Residence at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass.


The Studio is an advocate for artists working in glass, and the residency program is a core part of that commitment, says Amy Schwartz, director of The Studio. The residency program provides artists the luxury of spending a month focusing on their work without day-to-day worries. The Studio handles housing, travel, equipment, supplies, and assistance, while the artist engages in the process of creating and exploring.


The resident artists will be supported with technical assistance, housing, a food stipend, and studio space for one month. They also will have full access to The Studios state-of-the-art facilities, the Museums renowned Rakow Research Library, Museum staff, and the 45,000-object collection, which spans 35 centuries of glassmaking and represents each civilization in which glass has been made.


The artists will provide public Lunchtime Lectures during their residencies. Lectures will take place in The Studio Lecture Room at 12:00 p.m. on the specified dates. Registration is not required, and admission is free. Please contact (607) 974-6467 or thestudio(at)cmog(dot)org for more details.


March – Susan Liebold

Liebolds work explores luminosity. She uses flameworking techniques to develop biomorphic structures made of phosphorescent and fluorescent glass, which she develops by working closely with chemists. In her Studio residency, she will explore the contrasts between heavy and fragile glass, combining fragile glass objects with solid objects from the furnace. Liebold often integrates her work into the environment, at times placing them in a forest or field. Based in Germany, Lieobold studied at Giebichenstein, School of Art and Design in Halle. She has had exhibitions at several German museums.


Liebold will present a free public lecture at noon on March 18 in The Studio Lecture Room.


April – Beth Lipman
