Features From My Visit to: The Toledo Museum of Art - MODERN#1

TMA (Toledo Museum of Art) is one of my favorite places in Toledo, Ohio.  I first visited this beautiful museum when I was in high school in Canada.  I grew up in the Windsor area and I was privileged to go to a high school with an advanced art program.  We actually visited the TMA twice throughout my high school career.  I had no idea when I was a teenager that I would actually marry an American and then settle in the Toledo area!  I now visit my favorite museum once a year.

I will be featuring a few pieces from the TMA each month.

“A Rainbow Like You”
(Blown glass, acrylic, lighting, table, 2015)
By Katherine Gray (Canadian born)

It's officially Spring and when I saw this glass display (see pictures above) - I was reminded of the glorious floral colors of this season.

Below is a description/explanation taken from descriptive card beside the display:
"A Rainbow Like You" is both glass and light installation.  In this rainbow-hued work, Katherine Gray uses traditional blown vessels and theatrical lighting to express ideas about the transmission of light through another mode of glassmaking- stained glass.  Often found in houses of worship, light filtered through stained glass is usually transmitted from hight above the congregants seated below.  Gray seeks to reverse this action and it's implications, projecting light from below to create a rainbow as a colorful wall mural, evoking glass's ability to refract light into the color spectrum.

Gray is also commenting on the crowded display of glassware found in thrift stores today, 
which gave greater visibility to the transparent and sometimes overlooked material that is as common to our everyday lives.  Each of the glasses that are placed chromatically on the clear glass table was blown by Gray and collectively represent various styles from the history of global glassmaking.

God gave us the rainbow after Noah and the flood:

"I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth"
Genesis 9:13

ENJOY!
