The George R. Stroemple Collection is internationally recognized as one of the most significant collections of artwork documenting the studio glass movement in the Pacific Northwest. With holdings by such luminaries as Dale Chihuly, Lino Tagliapietra and Flora Mace, The Stroemple Collection illustrates both the early nascence and mature culmination of contemporary glass art making.
DALE CHIHULY Venetians
JAMES MONGRAIN Reinterpreting Venetian Tradition
This collection boasts over 1,200 delicate works, by the artists Salviati, Artisti Barovier, and Fratelli Toso, to name a few many of which will be on display in this exhibition. Salviati himself is known for reviving this glass-blowing tradition in the mid-19th century as it nearly fell into extinction. The breadth of form and technical bravura of these Italian relics is vast: Stroemple’s collection ranges large and wide, from flowers and goblets, to decanters and vases, candlesticks and perfume bottles, and much more. These vintage treasures are a cavalcade of dolphins, dragons, and swans, adorned on rims, handles, bases and the like and embellished to perfection with filigree and aventurine. The works in the Stroemple Collection remain as reminders to the fantasy and talent of Old Murano.
All works are from The George R. Stroemple Collection.
Wed-Sat 10AM-12PM & 1PM-3PM. Timed ticket available at sdc-arts.org. Must wear face mask.
