Glance by Benjamin Edols and Kathy Elliott
Opening at Beaver Galleries 18 October at 6pm
(posted 18 October 2012)
The artistic partnership of glass artists Benjamin Edols and Kathy Elliott continues to receive international recognition and this exhibition, their fifth with us in Canberra, emphatically shows why. Their distinctive style of collaborative work exploits the qualities of light and colour to create organically inspired abstract glass forms. Technical boundaries are also explored in the creation of these alluring and sophisticated glass sculptures. We would be delighted if you could join us, Ben and Kathy at the opening.
If you would like an online preview of the work in this exhibition, please click here then click on the relevant image when the website appears. Please note that some works are still being photographed so not all images are on the website yet. We expect to have them all online by Sunday.
