Murano Mosaic: Persistence and Evolution

Head to the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens to explore her legacy and art, and get a bonus visit through the world of Venetian art glass at the exhibition, “Murano Mosaic: Persistence and Evolution.”

Venice, specifically the island of Murano, has remained the center of decorative glass art for the last 5,000 years. Venetian techniques evolved from mosaics and have influenced artists around the globe for centuries. The post-World War II resurgence of interest in Venetian techniques deeply influenced the contemporary studio glass art movement. The range of styles is vast–from the classic works of the Murano “maestro” Lino Tagliapietra to the “cane” and “murini” work of leading Australian artists Clare Belfrage and Giles Bettison to the exciting works by emerging artist Kazuki Takizaw.

Glass artists continue to develop and evolve traditional Venetian techniques for their contemporary practices. Tansey Contemporary is privileged to present approximately 20 works highlighting the delicacy, intricacy, and beauty of this ancient Venetian heritage.
