Found Metal Finds Fused Glass
March 20th - May 2nd, 2015
Peggy Ames Nerud & Mary Knapp
The art in this show is radically different than the creations of the artists as individuals. The collaboration of their styles has really stretched their creative juices. Peggy's sculptures have generally been placed in outdoor settings gracing the rugged Montana landscapes. Mary's glass work, on the other hand, is ultra modern, sleek, and designed to grace interior settings.
To merge these two art mediums has been an interesting journey and a fun adventure. To add to the challenge, the studios are 250 miles apart. A few hiccups have been experienced as this venture began, mainly deciding which comes first, the glass or the metal. It was found that there are many solutions and outcomes with an artistic collaboration. Two heads, many ideas, two friends, and lots of play makes this venture one of a kind.
This show of 'Found metal finds fused glass' presents to the viewers the vision of two individual arts.
