BELLEVUE, WA.- This spring, Bellevue Arts Museum offers visitors a rare opportunity to experience the private collection of Seattle-based art collectors John and Joyce Price. On view from March 18 through August 8, 2010, Eyes for Glass: The Price Collection focuses on one aspect of the Prices' broad collecting activities: works whose common denominator is glass whether it be blown, cast, engraved, fused, slumped, carved, painted or in combination with non-glass materials. Enamored by the art created in the United States' Pacific Northwest and British Columbia, this premier exhibition includes over 170 works by 70 American and Native American artists, including Joe David, Preston Singletary, Susan Point, Kenojuak Ashevak, Walter Lieberman, Dick Weiss, Cappy Thompson, Dale Chihuly, Dante Marioni, Katherine Gray, William Morris, Sean Albert and Lino Tagliapietra.

"For John and Joyce Price collecting art is a passion; a unique, personal way of entering into a rich and meaningful life experience, as well as a way of being receptive and responsible to life," says BAM Director Emeritus Michael W. Monroe, who curated this first-time presentation of the Prices' unique glass collection. "Collecting objects has allowed John and Joyce to establish not only a dialogue with artists, but also to grow into lifelong friendships with them. Each object is a reminder of an intimacy established over time through giving and receiving. At a time when the world is fragmented and chaotic, the Prices have sought to share objects that speak of balance, beauty and harmony."

The Museum is excited to offer a wide range of free or low-cost Educational & Community Programs inspired by Eyes for Glass: The Price Collection. Activities include Breakfast with BAM on May 18th, a new monthly program designed to engage audiences in new conversations on art, craft and design; and several Get Crafty Saturdays!, informal drop-in activities for children ages 4 - 12, among others.
