For 20 years, The Studio has been a starting point for emerging artists and an incubator for new work by established artists. The works on view in this exhibition are part of the Museum’s permanent collection and were created by artists who have taught or who have been artists in residence at The Studio. Additional pieces by this artistic community can be found in the Glass Collection Galleries, where they are identified by The Studio at 20 symbol. The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass is a community of artists who come together to learn, create, and teach. Since opening its doors in 1996, The Studio has welcomed more than 20,000 students, instructors, and resident artists from around the world. What sets this teaching institution apart from others are the unique combination of facilities, the talented and dedicated staff, the inspiration of the Museum’s rich historical glass collection, and the significant holdings and staff assistance in the Rakow Research Library. In addition to being an internationally renowned glass teaching facility, The Studio is a place where artists come to make their work. A residency program supports 10–12 artists per year. Artists are selected through an application process and live and work in Corning for one month, fully supported by the staff of The Studio. The Studio is open to the public, so please stop in during your visit to the Museum. Learn more about classes, special programs, artist residencies, and instructors at The Studio.

Links: Australian Glass and the Pacific Northwest tells two related stories that began in the 1970s. In 1974, American artist Richard Marquis travelled to Australia to lecture, demonstrate and build glass studios at the invitation of the Australia Council for the Arts. Marquis’ relationship with Australian artist Nick Mount initiated a lineage of blown glass artists in Australia. The second story centers on kiln-formed glass and the relationship between Klaus Moje, founder of the glass workshop at Australian National University in Canberra, and the Bullseye Glass Company in Portland, OR. In 1979 Moje met Boyce Lundstrom, co-founder of Bullseye Glass Company, while at a workshop at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA. At Moje’s instigation, Bullseye Glass Company developed a line of compatible, fusible glass that solved long-standing technical problems. This glass is widely used by Australian artists today. Vicki Halper, Curator of Links: Australian Glass and the Pacific Northwest, notes, “The connections between Australia and the Pacific Northwest are longstanding and fascinating, but the differences between the art of the two regions are just as intriguing. Australians excel in fused and cold worked glass, which are not as prevalent in the Pacific Northwest. Opaque surfaces and muted colors are likewise more dominate in Australian glass than in the Pacific Northwest. Expect to be awed by what you see.” “This exhibition is long overdue given the excellence of the work being produced in Australia, and the interest in it shown by important American museums and collectors,” states Susan Warner, Executive Director of Museum of Glass. “The museum is proud to have organized this exhibition.” The artists represented by this exhibition include: Clare Belfrage, Giles Bettison, Gabriella Bisetto, Jane Bruce, Scott Chaseling, Cobi Cockburn, Nadège Desgenétez, Mel Douglas, Ben Edols and Kathy Elliott, Tim Edwards, Brendan Scott French, Mel George, Steve Klein, Jessica Loughlin, Dante Marioni, Richard Marquis, Klaus Moje, Tom Moore, Nick Mount, Stephen Proctor, Kirstie Rea, Tom Rowney, April Surgent, Janice Vitkovsky and Richard Whiteley. Approximately four pieces from each artist will be in the exhibition for a total of 92 pieces.
