Form and Feeling – Expressions of Humanity

This Richard L. Johnson memorial exhibition emphasizes the representation of human emotion and expression in figurative works of glass. Simultaneously strong and fragile, the glass pieces featured in this show draw a significant parallel to the condition of human feeling, be it pain, joy, anger, confusion, embarrassment, or a myriad of other emotions.
