Two of Wands is the first collaborative exhibition between Adam Milner and Allison Smith. Adam’s practice focuses upon recollection, collections and the act of collecting, and an ordering of the randomness of objects and memories as a means for recall and reconsideration. Allison considers historical patterns, events, traditionally held beliefs, and recent momentous events, and creates her art to put forward other ways of interpreting them. The Two of Wands is the tarot card that signifies ideas of the couple or a pair as well as notions of potential and possibility. The title references a magic and a doubling which relates to many of the works Adam and Allison are creating for the exhibition.
For Swing States: Recent Perspectives in Glass Sculpture from the Middle West early career sculptor and glass artist Zac Weinberg takes a critical look at contemporary glass practices in Ohio and Pittsburgh, traditional centers of glass making since the mid-nineteenth century and curates and exhibition of examples. The exhibition showcases new glass work by Jennifer Halvorson, Kim Harty, Nate Ricciuto, Heather Clancy, Joanna Manousis, Alli Hoag, Sean Merchant, and Mike Stevens.
