Went down to the Marlborough Gallery last weekend (appointment and mask required) to see the Brassaï exhibit and also saw this.
…and a few steps away from the Women’s Rights Pioneers statue was this lovely sculpture.
We were planning on joining an Art Walk starting in the Warehouse District about a week and a half ago. By the time we got there it had been cancelled, the trolley garaged and the galleries shuttered. We found these compacted cubes of metal outside one of the warehouses of studios.
I couldn’t find any placards to identify these, the top image is a set of glass globes from their students; the bottom one is a close-up of a metal sculpture in the gardens.
(These pictures were shot over a week ago – everything’s shut now and we’re complying with attempts to halt the spread of Covid-19 by not going out except for necessities).
St Petersburg appears to be a home for many artists working with glass. We saw a demonstration of the art at the Morean Arts Center, all of the above were shot at the Imagine Museum and still to come is the Duncan McClellan Gallery. We haven’t made it yet to the Chihuly collection. Apologies to artists of the works above if I mis-labeled any of the works.
