Contemporary glass artists explore new directions in glass media following the mastery of the glass art movement spawned during the 1970s. From neon to hot-worked and kiln-formed glass, Embracing Narrative features the work by members of the Washington Glass School and the Virginia Glass Guild.  Together these organizations promote the awareness and advancement of glass through ideas, theory, sculptural design, technology and installation. 

"Embracing Narrative" was juried by Diane Wright, the Carolyn and Richard Barry Curator of Glass at the Chrysler Museum of Art and Sheila Giolitti, artist and owner of Mayer Fine Art Gallery.

For this exhibit, PACC joins with the Chrysler Museum of Art and regional art facilities to celebrate the art of glass as Norfolk hosts the Glass Art Society Conference from June 1-3, 2017.
