Maddi's Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Art Glass Month
Apr. 1 - 30, 2004, is "Art Glass Month" at Maddi's Gallery in Charlotte, NC, and the gallery is celebrating with a special exhibit by noted North Carolina glass blower Theo Keller. Keller's newest body of work is inspired by botanical form and color, combining these elements of nature in spectacular sculptural interpretation.
Keller has studied under the Italian glass master Emilio Santini and at the Penland School of Crafts under Shane Fero and Loren Stump. He served as head glassblower for the United States Center for Early American Crafts and currently works out of his glass studio in Asheville, NC.
In addition to Keller's exhibit, Maddi's Gallery is displaying the work of one hundred American glass artists, encompassing both functional and decorative works. Since opening in 2002, Maddi's has worked with glass artists across the country to present one of the largest glass collections in the Carolinas. Noted glass artists include Judson Guerard, Cohn-Stone Studios, Lundberg Studios, Antonio Garcia, Pizzichillo and Gordon, Steven Lundberg, and Robert Kuster of Belie Mead Glass. Robert Kuster's glass balloons and pods have been the subject of several recent articles, citing their versatility in producing Chihuly-like chandeliers and hanging sculptures.
During the April celebration of Art Glass, Maddi's is offering special pricing opportunities and custom orders from leading glass blowers across the country.
