Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann and Joseph Corcoran

Main Gallery
Public Reception: Sunday, April 13, 2-4 pm
Katherine Mann's paintings carefully balance fluidity and congestion, while Joseph Corcoran's sculptures explore the transmission, reflection and diffusion of light through glass. In this exhibition, the two artists come together to create collaborative works juxtaposing their two very different mediums--paper and glass. Combining exuberant abstract painting, detailed drawing, and blown and manipulated glass forms, these collaborative abstract pieces explore ideas of lenses, light and visual warpage.
