Members Preview Tour of Masters of Studio Glass: Richard Marquis

Members at the Friend level and above ($75+) are invited to join curator of modern glass, Tina Oldknow, for a tour of our newest exhibition. Tour begins 11am. 

Richard Marquis—glassblower and collector of beat-up, vintage objects—has had an extraordinary influence on the development of contemporary studio glass, in America and around the world. His work is humorous, ironic, smart, and beautifully—some might say obsessively—made. As an artist, Marquis is admired for his understanding of color and form as much as for his humor and willingness to experiment. As a glassblower, he has influenced an entire generation of artists working in glass who aspire to his technical mastery and the originality of his vision.

This exhibition, on view February 16, 2013–February 2, 2014, is part of the Corning Museum’s ongoing Masters of Studio Glass series, developed to provide a platform for in-depth surveys of artists represented in the Museum’s permanent collection.

Space is limited. Please RSVP for the tour by contacting us at or 607.438.5600.
