Marlene Rose Solo Exhibition at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art

 

Marlene is delighted that she’s been invited to hold a solo exhibition of her studio glass sculptures at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art (FWMoA) in Indiana from June 1st until August 4th. Titled Cultural Blueprints, the exhibition will feature some of Marlene’s newest works.

Fort Wayne Museum of Art traces its roots back to 1888, becoming a full-fledged museum in 1921. For close to a hundred years now, FWMoA has been enhancing the lives of those in the growing Fort Wayne Cultural District.  In 2007, FWMoA added 10,000 square feet to increase the space for exhibitions, programs and visitors to the Museum fulfilling its vision to be the cultural catalyst of the region.

Marlene was struck by the fact that their philosophy is strikingly similar to her own artistry:

The visual arts represent myriad aspects of our collective cultures, historical experiences, and of the human condition.  We believe that the visual arts open our eyes, hearts, and minds to the intersecting dimensions of our worlds and, in doing so, add value and meaning to our lives.  This added value and meaning develops from the broadening of personal perspectives, promoting increased empathy, sparking moments of self-discovery, fostering the development of new insights, as well as nurturing our human spirit.

This aligns closely with the theme of Cultural Blueprints. Her sculptures are created with a relatively new technique that builds upon the ancient tradition of bronze casting. Each piece is hand cast from molten glass into a unique and modern work of art that resonates with references and allusions to ancient cultures and civilizations.

You can meet Marlene Rose at the gallery on June 1, at 10:30 am. Join her for a guided talk-through of the Cultural Blueprints solo exhibition – free with museum entrance.

Art lovers and aficionados in the Atlanta area are in for a treat this April. Marlene Rose is exhibiting her Cultural Tension/Glass Sculptures alongside early works of acclaimed photographer, Edward Mapplethorpe.  The exhibition is at the Fay Gold Gallery, 161 Mangum Street SW, Atlanta, GA. The opening is April 2nd from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

Fay Gold, renowned for owning the most important contemporary art gallery in the South for 29 years, has launched a new gallery space on Mangum Street. Fay has represented Marlene for over a decade, but this will be the first time showing her studio glass sculpture work in this converted 1890’s railroad warehouse space.

Edward Mapplethorpe assisted his older brother Robert (1946-1989) in his studio throughout the 1980s. In 1983, Mapplethorpe launched his solo career establishing a distinct and personal style. His luminous nudes, portraits, still lifes, and abstract works have been exhibited and collected throughout the United States, as well as in major cities around the world.
