Hot Gatherings, Cool Conversations: A DMG Visiting Glass Artist Series
Sponsored by The DMG School Project
Free with MFA admission.
This month: Special Holiday Exhibition with Chuck Savoie and Jacob Stout
Master glassblower Charles Savoie is known for his Italian-style series of Zanfirico goblets, made of colored glass rods that are twisted together to create fascinating patterns. Mr. Savoie makes all of his glass from scratch. He holds his BS in studio art from Southern Connecticut University and two Master of Fine Arts degrees, one in studio glass from Illinois State University and the other in sculpture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Mr. Savoie completed further study at the Pilchuck Glass School where he studied with the likes of Dale Chihuly, William Morris, and Lino Tagliapietra. He has shown his work widely, has won numerous awards, and is represented in the collections of the Museum of Art and Design in New York and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, among others.
Join the artists in the MFA Cafe 1-hour before the talk and have brunch and a complimentary mimosa.
