LIT: Light in Transmission
February 5 – May 9, 2021
This exhibition is a survey of the diverse range of light art within the shared medium of both neon and plasma sculpture curated by Percy Echols II, an artist, creator of the podcast “Taming Lighting” and PGC’s first recipient of the Ron Desmett Memorial Award for Imagination with Glass. Curated by Percy Echols II, this exhibition features the work of 15 artists.
The Hodge Gallery at Pittsburgh Glass Center presents critically acclaimed contemporary glass art exhibitions throughout the year. A wide range of work in glass is showcased from student exhibitions to cutting edge installations by established artists that incorporate light, sound and time-based elements. With these exhibitions, PGC is expanding the perception of glass from purely functional item to the realm of sculpture, installation and expression.
Since 2002, hundreds of artists from the region and around the world have been showcased in the Emma Clyde Hodge Gallery at PGC. Look back to see some of the amazing artwork that was presented.
