FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Glass artist Marc Petrovic returns again and again to the same themes: identity, geography, life cycles, and self-reflection—essentially, the human condition and the sense of identity formed through the journey of life—infusing the core of his work. The Greek philosopher Heraclitus suggested, “You cannot reenter the same river twice, for the river is always changing.” Petrovic relishes this constant yet infinitely varying source of inspiration, the river—like glass—is magical, but not magic. Until the glass is infused with an idea, a source, or an expression, his job as an artist is not complete.
Petrovic is a full time glass artist who shares a studio in Cleveland, Ohio with his wife and fellow glass artist, Kari Russell-Pool. His work can be seen in numerous private and public collections including the Museum of Art and Design in New York, the Corning Museum of Glass, and the Tacoma Glass Museum in Washington. Petrovic was a 2017 recipient of an Ohio Art Council Individual Excellence Award. Marc holds a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art.
Due to travel concerns during the ongoing epidemic, the Visiting Artist Colloquium with Spencer Finch for this date is cancelled.
