Museum of Wisconsin Art: August 18, 2018 through March 18, 2019
“Fore and Aft: A Vitreous View of Time”
www.wisconsinart.org

This special exhibition presents the work of three leading Wisconsin artists—Eoin Breadon, Beth Lipman, and Jeremy Popelka—who embrace the challenge of glass, variously referencing and rejecting the medium’s workaday functionality to explore its relationship with light, form, and time. Each work is thoughtfully installed to reverberate in conversation with MOWA’s permanent collection, priming viewers to reflect on the unassuming art historical resonances of each artist’s work. Taking inspiration from Irish storytelling, Dutch still lives, and architectonic forms, these sculptures bridge the past and the present.
