    Rick Ayottebegan his career as a scientific glassblower, but his love of nature, and his friendship with Paul Stankard, allowed him to explore glass as a creative means of expression. This collection of 125 works highlights a career that joins his passion for nature with his artistic destiny.

  • Through December 31, 2016 MUSEUM OF AMERICAN GLASS, WHEATON ARTS AND CULTURAL CENTER, MILLVILLE, NJ
    From the Ground Up: Archaeology, Artisans, Everyday Life features over 600 artifacts recovered by AECOM Cultural Resources during archaeological excavations along Interstate 95 in Philadelphia. Co-curated by Historic Glass Specialist Mary Mills and Senior Research Analyst Rebecca White, From the Ground Up highlights the archaeological excavations at Dyottville Glass Works and the history of the glass industry that once thrived in the Kensington-Fishtown neighborhood north of Center City. It also demonstrates how Native Americans and, later, nineteenth-century glassblowers and potters creatively used the region’s resources and established a sense of place. Additional artifacts on display date from the late eighteenth to early twentieth century and tell how families living along the Delaware River prepared and served their food, lit their homes, cared for the sick, fed their children and addressed personal and social issues that are still relevant today. AECOM Cultural Resources in Burlington, New Jersey, is conducting these archaeological investigations, on behalf of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration.

  • Through February 19, 2017 BERGSTROM–MAHLER MUSEUM OF GLASS Bending Brilliance: Neon and Plasma Sculpture 165 N. Park Ave. Neenah, WI 54956 (920) 751-4658 www.bmmglass.com
    Works by artists who use light as their medium are showcased. Since the early 20th century, neon lights have been used in advertising signage. Since then, the art form has evolved to include works that use light, dark, and shadow to transform an environment, create a composition, or extend the familiar genre of signage to playful use of puns and thought-provoking themes.
