studio glass art sculptures

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.
