Tacoma Museum of Glass, Lino Tagliapietra exhibit

25 Feb

Attention south sounders and UW commuters! If you are in the Tacoma area or driving by the Tacoma area, then this exhibit is in your neighborhood and is a must-see. For Seattle-lites and northerns, battle the traffic if you’re strong, wary the gas prices if you’re noble, and take that Sunday drive if you’re unconcerned with gas emissions and global warming (just kidding!).

The Tacoma Museum of Glass has just opened a new exhibit that is sure to keep crowds coming throughout its multi-month presentation. Lino Tagliapietra, an Italian artist, is presenting his breathtaking glassworks; a renowned teacher (to the Italians’ dismay!) that has brought Italian glass-blowing artistry around the world, Lino looks to share his work with his Northwestern community, whom he has lived with over few decades.

Playing with new techniques, lighting, and color, Lino has rejoiced in intimate, cherished glass-making amongst the many factory-minded products and people that frequent the market.

Stop by at the Tacoma Museum of Glass for a look at his superlative craft.
