In collaboration with Austin Art Projects, we are hosting Toots Zynsky's new exhibition "Camouflage". She started this new body of work last year and at the time, we exhibited a small preview that had sold out completely. Now, we are proudly presenting a full-scale solo exhibition of this new series which found inspiration in the feather patterns of endangered bird species. Toots Zynsky’s distinctive heat-formed filet de verre (glass thread) sculptures enjoy widespread popularity and deserved acclaim for their often extraordinary and always unique explorations in color. Defying categorization, her works of art inhabit a region all their own, interweaving the traditions of painting, sculpture, and the decorative arts.
Mary Ann Toots Zynsky was born in 1951 and raised in Massachusetts. Known professionally and to her friends as Toots Zynsky, she received her bachelor of fine arts in 1973 at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence. There, she was one of a group of pioneering artists studying with Dale Chihuly, who made studio glass a worldwide phenomenon.
Her glass sculptures are represented in over seventy international museum collections and countless private collections.
The exhibition can be visited with no appointment necessary Monday - Friday from 11 - 5.
