Museum of Glass Visiting Artist: November 11-15

Monday, November 9th, 2009

amerman-singletary-art1Marcus and Preston Singletary will be a part of the “visiting artist” program at the Museum of Glass in Washington state November 11-15.

From the Museum of Glass web site:

Marcus Amerman is an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and creates works using traditional beadwork techniques infused with his own style of stitching beads into realistic, pictorial images, rather than patterns. Tlingit tribal member Preston Singletary will join him in the Hot Shop to collaborate on new designs.

This residency is presented in conjunction with Singletary’s exhibition, Preston Singletary: Echoes, Fire, and Shadows.

On November 15th, Joe Feddersen joins them for a panel discussion at 2 pm.
