Tyler Glass Faculty Presents Panel for Hush!
Last night Tyler Glass Faculty Sharyn O'Mara, Megan Biddle, Amber Cowan, and Jessica Jane Julius presented a panel discussion for their group exhibition HUSH at the Philadelphia Art Alliance. The discussion was moderated by Dan Clayman who opened with a question regarding the origins of the title "HUSH." Sharyn O'Mara replied, " We wanted to invoke a sense of quiet that evolves into intensity..." upon which Cowan added, "The show was a way to cohesively focus on the work and not get distracted by an abundance of color." As the conversation evolved Jessica Jane Julius spoke about materiality and its ability to "foster curiosity and experimentation with aesthetics." Megan Biddle discussed the concept of wonder and how this drives her desire to make and investigate space and time.
Clayman emphasized the exhibitions success in breaking the boudaries of the studio glass movement and how the work resides within the conversation of post studio glass due to its use of mixed materials while simultaneously transcending the materiality of glass.
If you have not had the chance to check out HUSH at the Philadelphia Art Alliance make sure to visit before April 24!
