Little Dreams of Glass and Metal: Enameling in America, 1920 to the Present

Sunday, August 2, 2015 (All day) to Sunday, November 29, 2015 (All day)

What is enameling? Beyond high temperature manipulations of glass, metal, and scale, enameling is a touch of alchemy, storytelling, and deep rich color that captures the eye as well as the imagination. The exhibition includes a wide range of objects from wearable jewelry to large enamel-on-steel wall panels and explores the history of enameling in this country from 1920 to the present through approximately 120 works from the Enamel Arts Foundation collection.

Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, have set aside their weapons of war and decided to be married instead. The same cannot be said of the rulers of the Fairy Kingdom, Titania, and Oberon, still fighting over Titania’s refusals to relinquish a child within her custody to him.

These two worlds, the Fairies and the mortals, collide when two lovers, Lysander and Hermia, flee to the woods after Duke Theseus decrees that she must bend to her father’s will and marry Demitrius, a man who, all else aside, her best friend Helena is completely in love with.
