    Italian Glass Master Lino Tagliapietra Reception & Book Signing

    Schantz Galleries presents 'A Sanctuary of Glass,' an exhibition of work by legendary Italian glass master Lino Tagliapietra, at the Art Palm Beach contemporary art fair, Palm Beach County Convention Center, 650 Okeechobee Boulevard, January 24-27th, 2014. A reception and live book signing with the artist will be held Friday, January 24th, from 4:30-5:30pm, in Schantz Galleries booth #302 at the fair. Tagliapietra will travel from Italy to sign his recent publication, 'La Poesia Nella Vetro: The Poetry of Glass,' at the event.

    As James Yood, adjunct professor of art history at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and regular contributor to GLASS magazine, wrote, "There are probably no two words more respected and honored in
    the history of modern sculpture in glass than 'Lino Tagliapietra;' he is the living bridge, the crucial link between the august history of Venetian glass and the ceaseless wonders of what today we call the modern Studio Glass Movement."

    An influential Venetian artist and master glassmaker, Tagliapietra's work is recognized worldwide. He has exhibited in museums across the globe, receiving countless awards, honors, and openly sharing his
    far-reaching knowledge of the medium and skill as one of its finest practitioners; his career is defined by his dedication to workmanship, innovation, and collaboration--including his participation in the La Scuola Internazionale del Vetro symposia in the 1970s which brought the finest Muranese makers together with artists from around the world.

    Schantz Galleries' 'A Sanctuary of Glass' at Art Palm Beach 2014 features the artist's blown glass sculptures, glass installations, and most recent fused glass panels. Tagliapietra continues to be a pioneer in the field, while nearing eighty years of age; the stunning works in this exhibition demonstrate both his creative inventiveness and technical complexity in an ever-evolving body of work. Like Modernist masters breaking away from Old Master tradition, Tagliapietra highlights the qualities of his medium and purposefully manipulates form and color to achieve symbolic meaning. Collectors will delight in the opportunity to experience the achievements of this top contemporary glass master in person, and meet the artist first-hand.

    Schantz Galleries is located at 3 Elm Street, Stockbridge, Massachusetts 01262. Call 413-298-3044 or visit for more information.
