This exhibit celebrates the exquisite glass sculpture of Sean Alcala, the winner of the Pence Gallery Emerging Artist Award for 2021. Alcala connects his medium of glass to water, using art to critique and question our role in conserving this vital element in our ecosystem. His kiln-formed sculptures evoke a sense of captured time and movement, through his careful control of layered colors, textures, and shapes. Playing with the ability of glass to reflect or absorb light, the artist alters the glass to play with its transparence and opacity. As he writes, “I invite my viewers to look beyond texture and form, to explore the internal space…to discover what exists under the surface.” In this regard, he connects our visual journey to our environmental plight, offering us a chance to rethink our relationship with the natural world. 

 

This exhibit is sponsored by James R. & Suzette M. Smith as part of the Pence Emerging Artist Award.
