Exhibition: View recent works by the current artist-in-residence with the SU Glass Program.
Artist Talk: with Walter Zimmerman
Friday, April 21st at 4:00 p.m.
Come out for the 3rd Friday opening reception! Reception will began immediately following the talk in the Downtown Art Gallery.
Inspired by Russian history, personal history and “Czar Blue” (a sale on overstocked color), Scenes from the House of Special Purpose presents a densely layered visual narrative in which the viewer is immersed in an experience that references artist Walter Zimmerman’s own family history, blended with the tale of the Romanovs, the Russian Imperial family in the last moments of their life in 1918.
Walter Zimmerman has been artist-in-residence in the Hot Glass Program at Salisbury University since September 2016. He created this body of work over the course of his residency. Scenes from the House of Special Purpose is accompanied by a small installation of work created by Steven Durow, Head of the Glass Program at SU, and glass students, all who worked closely with Zimmerman over the course of the academic year.
