3. PRESTON SINGLETARY (Colleen)
Colleen recommends the "Echoes, Fire, and Shadows" exhibit of Preston Singletary's work at the Museum of Glass. (http://www.museumofglass.org/exhibitions/preston-singletary/) "The Museum of Glass is proud to present "Preston Singletary: Echoes, Fire, and Shadows, the first mid-career survey of this renowned artist. For nearly two decades, Singletary has straddled two cultures -- melding his Tlingit ancestry with the dynamism of the Studio Glass Movement -- and in the process creating an extraordinarily distinctive and powerful body of work. Drawing from traditional Tlingit art, Singletary has translated the visual vocabulary of patterns, narratives, and systems most closely associated with Native woodcarving and painted art into glass, a material historically associated with Native peoples through an extensive network of trading routes." Through Sept. 19, 2010.
