Renowned Artists Albert Paley and Martin Blank to Collaborate in Museum of Glass Hot Shop
Albert Paley

TACOMA, WASH.- The Museum of Glass welcomes Albert Paley (Rochester, NY) and Martin Blank (Seattle, WA) to the Hot Shop for a joint residency December 15 – 19, 2010. Together the two will translate a selection of Paley’s designs into glass. This will be the artists’ second collaboration, the first occurring in 2001 for an exhibition titled Integration and Dialogue.

“Although we don’t know exactly what the artists are planning to create, we are quite sure it will be fascinating to watch them work during this intriguing collaboration,” comments deputy director Susan Warner. “Both Albert and Martin are extremely talented sculptors who create large-scale works of art. It’s pretty safe to assume they will be pushing the limits of the hot glass while they’re here.”

A Conversation with the Artists will be held on Sunday, December 19 at 2 p.m. in the Hot Shop. They will discuss their work with Museum visitors.

Albert Paley is one of the most celebrated metal sculptors in the country and is the first to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects, the AIA's highest award to a non-architect.

His work can be found in the permanent collections of major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York , the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston , the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston , and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London .
