Hyde Collection opens concurrent exhibitions featuring the work by Stephen Knapp and Tiffany Studios

GLENS FALLS, NY.- Stephen Knapp has been creating art for over thirty years that interacts with, and is transformed by light. Combining art and science Knapp creates innovative and engaging works that are formed at the intersection of painting, sculpture, and architecture. Dispensing with traditional media and narrative content, Knapp’s “lightpaintings,” a word he coined to describe his light-based installations, are both innovative and invigorating: transposing artistic tradition into the hyper-stimulated world of the twenty–first century. He creates his lightpaintings using a special glass treated with layers of metallic coatings that act as a selective prism to separate focused light into different wavelengths of the color spectrum. Knapp cuts, shapes, and polishes the glass in his studio to create a palette that he uses to refract and reflect light onto a surface and surrounding space.

The artist’s unique ability to harness the power of light represents a new form of visual art. Knapp’s lightpaintings have been the focus of many museum and gallery exhibitions throughout the country, and have been selected as permanent site-specific installations for museums and public spaces. The exhibition at The Hyde Collection includes approximately eleven works and an exterior piece installed by the artist.

Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light
Organized by The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass, New York

As a painter, Louis C. Tiffany was captivated by the interplay of light and color, and this fascination found its most spectacular expression in his glass “paintings.” Through the medium of opalescent glass, Tiffany could actually capture light in color and manipulate it to achieve impressionistic effects. Using new and innovative techniques and materials, Tiffany Studios created leaded-glass windows and lampshades in vibrant colors and richly varied patterns, textures, and opacities.

Organized by The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass in New York City, Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light is comprised of three windows, sixteen lamps, and seventy-five pieces of opalescent flat glass and pressed-glass “jewels” that illustrate the rich expanse of color and light available to the artists at the Tiffany Studios. The objects on display are some of the most iconic and celebrated of Tiffany’s works. Chosen for their masterful rendering of nature in flowers or landscape scenes and for the subtle use of light and shading in decorative geometric patterns, they exemplify the rich and varied glass palette, sensitive color selection, and intricacy of design that was characteristic of Tiffany’s leaded-glass objects. In addition to an exploration of materials and their effects, the exhibition also discusses the contributions of two of Tiffany’s leading designers, Clara Driscoll and Agnes Northrop.

Dr. Egon Neustadt, the founder of The Neustadt Collection, began acquiring Tiffany lamps in 1935, when the excess of the Gilded Age was still out of fashion, and went on to amass an almost encyclopedic collection. Perhaps his most significant acquisition came in 1967 when he purchased the flat and pressed glass leftover from the closing of the Tiffany Studios in the late 1930s. This collection contains some 275,000 pieces of glass and is the only holding of its kind. With both materials and objects, The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass is uniquely positioned to fully explore Louis C. Tiffany’s legacy of painting with color and glass.
