Minneapolis Glass Artist, Marlo Cronquist will be on-site at Angela Lensch Gallery on Saturday, July 16, for the debut of her 2016 Murrine Glass Collection. Cronquist first started working with glass while studying sculpture and furniture design at Minneapolis College of Art & Design, where she shared a studio with now gallery owner, Angela Lensch. Cronquist transferred those skills to glasswork at the Minnesota Center for Glass Arts in Minneapolis where she has studied and now teaches. She also studied at the world renowned Corning Museum of Glass in New York, with Bill Gudenrath, John Miller, and Maestro Davide Salvadore. Her work is best known for its use of color and its balance between traditional techniques and contemporary design. She finds inspiration from the art and cultures of the places she has traveled to such as Italy, Morocco, and Spain.
Join us for a glass of wine and art conversation on Saturday from 10-5pm. The gallery will feature Cronquist’s newest collection of handblown glass vessels and pendant lights. Marlo will also have samples of her handmade Murrine Glass, for a behind the scenes peek into her process.
