Charlotte Potter and April Surgent: Cameo Glass in Context
Venue(s)
Wichita Art Museum 2018-06-09 through 2018-09-30
“Charlotte Potter and April Surgent: Cameo Glass in Context,” organized by the Wichita Art Museum in Wichita, Kansas, focuses on the work of these two contemporary cameo makers in context of their historical precedents. The exhibition, curated by guest curator Vicki Halper, formerly of the Seattle Art Museum, will feature ancient and European historical examples of glass cameos, alongside Charlotte and April’s work. The Wichita Art Museum has a small, but growing collection of glass with an emphasis on Steuben, supported by the F. Price Cossman Trust. In addition to providing context for the exhibition overall, some of the requested pieces, especially those by George Woodall, have particular resonance for individual works by either of the two contemporary artists. The show is scheduled to open at the Wichita Art Museum on June 9th, 2018 and run through October 30th, 2018. There are no other venues planned.
