I recently posted about an art tour at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, in Richmond, VA. Coming this October 20 to the VMFA is one of my all time favorite artists, Dale Chihuly. The VMFA sent me an email today inviting the public to view a Chihuly installation in the outdoor pond at the museum. I would have loved to watch that, given more notice.
Dale Chihuly is a glass artist of reknown and his love of color, size, scale have me mystified.
See the artist at work:
I love his amoebic forms, the liquidity of the glass, the whole concept of sand and fire=glass..it is totally cool.
His Basket series involves forms inside of forms:
Floats and Reeds are in pools all over the world.
His chandeliers are in museums, gardens, select homes, and even suspended over canals in Venice.
His Seaform series is pure beauty:
Doesn't this talent just blow you away? Happy Friday friends!
