Artist-in-Residence: Joanna Manousis

Joanna Manousis holds an MFA in Sculpture from Alfred University, NY, and a BFA in Glass from The University of Wolverhampton, England. She has worked, studied, and taught in Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and has received a number of scholarships and awards for her blown and kiln-cast sculpture. These include a Bombay Sapphire nomination, the Frabel award for “Best Artist,” and a finalist entry in “E-Merge,” 2010. Currently, Manousis resides in the United States, and is teaching as an adjunct for a year at Alfred University. Manousis’ work captures and animates transitional moments, revealing a world in which objects, being, and places are interconnected and in flux. She uses glass to induce reflection—both physically and metaphorically. In her October 2012 Residency at The Studio, Manousis is interested in working on a new body of work that alludes to both nature and to man-made artifice, creating a series of blown molded forms in clear glass that have thin layers of pâte de verre strategically inlaid into the blown surfaces.

Chihuly Glass Exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia

This great glass exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is by the world’s premier glass artist, Dale Chihuly. I was first introduced to Chihuly’s work when I visited the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas many years ago and saw his fantastic ceiling sculpture “Fiori Di Como” in the lobby. I’ve been a fan ever since. The exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond continues until February 10, 2013.
