STOCKBRIDGE, MASS.- A new exhibition by Dale Chihuly opens at Schantz Galleries in Stockbridge on August 6, 2022 and runs through September 18, 2022. Chihuly is an American artist who revolutionized the studio glass movement and elevated perceptions of the glass medium. Schantz Galleries provides visitors with a uniquely intimate setting in which to experience Chihuly's work. Guided by his background in interior design and architecture and interest in light, space, and form, Chihuly and his team designed a site-specific exhibition that works within the architecture of Schantz Galleries and showcases well-known series and large-scale installations.

"CHIHULY" is the artist's third exhibition with the gallery, and the show features new architectural installations, pedestal sculptures, and two-dimensional work which will give visitors insight into the artist's range of exploration over the last five decades. The stunning blown-glass sculptures on view will include a Chandelier, a Persian Wall, Ikebana, Baskets, Persians, and a grouping of his Cylinder sculptures. Since 1975, Chihuly has created an ever-evolving body of Cylinders with glass thread drawings fused onto molten bubbles. This revolutionary "pick-up drawing" technique has allowed Chihuly to integrate myriad motifs, particularly patterns inspired by Native American textiles.

Chihuly's blown-glass sculptures are joined by energetic Drawings, and Light Drawings that reference the development of his work in glass series. The artist has always used drawing to convey his concepts to his glassblowing team, and the drawings themselves are a unique body of two-dimensional work. The expressive forms featured in Chihuly's Ikebana Light Drawings invigorate and illuminate night and day with luminous colors which impart a dynamic dimensionality that is further enhanced by the passage of light from behind the painting.

"We are truly honored to have the opportunity to exhibit works by Dale Chihuly in Stockbridge," says gallery owner and director Jim Schantz. "Chihuly is one of the most well-known living American artists-certainly the most recognized glass artist in the world-and he continues to work in a grand and exhilarating way."

Chihuly's ambitious architectural installations have been placed in notable cities, museums, and gardens around the world, and his work is in the permanent collections of more than 200 museums. He has mounted numerous solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the de Young Museum, San Francisco; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the current Chihuly Then and Now: The Collection at Twenty, at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Chihuly Garden and Glass, a long-term exhibition, opened at Seattle Center in 2012.

Schantz Galleries is a destination for those seeking contemporary art by premier artists working in the medium of glass. Located at 3 Elm St. in Stockbridge, Mass., the gallery has established itself as one of the leading contemporary art glass galleries.
