Schantz Galleries presents ‘A Sanctuary of Glass,’ an exhibition of work by legendary Italian glass master Lino Tagliapietra, at the Art Palm Beach contemporary art fair. A reception and live book signing with the artist will be held Friday, January 24th, from 4:30-5:30pm, in Schantz Galleries booth #302 at the fair. Tagliapietra will travel from Italy to sign his recent publication, â€˜La Poesia Nella Vetro: The Poetry of Glass,â€™ at the event.
The exhibition features blown glass sculpture, installations, and recent fused panels. Tagliapietra continues to be a pioneer in the field while nearing eighty years of age; this stunning exhibition demonstrates both creative inventiveness and technical complexity in an ever-evolving body of work.
