The Treachery of Images,
an Exhibit of Glass Pipes

Opening on Friday, April 7, this new temporary exhibit will showcase works that traditionally have been marginalized as “functional” glass art due to their association with an illicit activity. The “Treachery of Images” Exhibit embraces both the technical and social challenges of this art form by celebrating the unconventional designs and amazing craftsmanship of glass pipemakers. The work shown here, Freija by Banjo and Snic Barnes, is one of dozens of works that will be on display. Click here to learn more.
