From antique paperweights to contemporary sculpture, the “Clearly Beautiful: works in glass” exhibit in the Guenzel Gallery at the Peninsula School of Art, reveals how a medium that transforms from liquid to solid is again transformed into objects of both beauty and function. On display from March 13 – April 11, the exhibit features the art of pioneering artists in the studio art glass movement, as well as recent works by Jeremy Popelka and Stephanie Trenchard of Popelka Trenchard Glass in Sturgeon Bay; Keith and Deanna Clayton of K. Allen Glass Studio in Sister Bay; and Kristin Thielking, a professor of art at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The opening reception, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Saturday, March 14 from 5 – 7 pm.

“Clearly Beautiful” presents a wide range of techniques and uses for glass through the categories of paperweights, sculpture, vessel and narrative. Pieces on loan from private collections (including works by Dale Chihuly and Paul Stankard) as well as those for purchase from other contemporary artists, will be on display. Glass making demonstrations through a DVD presentation will bring the process to life for gallery visitors during the exhibit.
