Rhythms:  Six Women Sculptors in Glass







Dwelling on Sunrise by Mary B. White






Rhythms is an exhibition of work by six artists who each approach glass as a sculptural medium to be combined with other materials:  metal, wood, clay, ink and paint, and found objects.  Jude Schlotzhauer, Anna Boothe, Elizabeth Mears, Mary White, Lisa Zerkowitz and Ana Thiel each present six to ten artworks in the exhibit.



All of the artists have taught and exhibited internationally and are connected by intent as well aas media and through their artwork.  They address personal and spiritual issues, incorporating images and objects which reflect their environments, concerns and place in our culture.  They each put a face to the rhythms of women's lives.



RHYTHMS:  Six women Sculptors in Glass opens at art6 Gallery for First Fridays, on April 1st, 2005, at 7 pm.  The exhibit will continue through May 1st, 2005 and can be visited Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 4 pm.  art6 Gallery is located at 6 East Broad Street in downtown Richmond, Virginia.
