Presentation by Sean Hennessey
7:30 PM at Stonegate Clubhouse
11551 E. Mountain View Road
On Monday evening, March 9, at 7:30 PM, Arizona Glass Alliance will proudly sponsor a presentation by Sean Hennessey, one of the leading young artists currently working in glass (and other materials). Those of you who were on the trip last year to Washington will remember we met Sean, and saw some of his work, at our visit to the Washington Glass School. Sean is one of the most original and inventive young artists in the glass world today, and his work has been recognized at SOFA and he’s represented in several major collections, both public and private. Sean is a leading member of the “glass secessionist” movement, which focuses on the next generation of using glass in art, often in combination with other materials, in a way which emphasizes content and narrative as well as craftsmanship and form.
As Sean describes his work: “The heart of my work is an examination and a suggestion of our identity in a world that places us in a struggle for harmony between our spirituality and our corporeality. My works contain messages of obstacles and of hope, of seeking and of enlightenment. I aim to create works that inspire and remind us of wonders and mysteries we have lost. My work is a mixed and multimedia combination of glass, concrete, photography, drawing, light, video, paint, found objects, wood and steel. I primarily create wall relief sculptures that are representation and narrative. There is a feel of the past, but with materials and techniques of today.”
An image of one of Sean’s works is shown below, and to see and learn more about him take a look at his website, www.dcsean.com. You’ll find Sean to be a very interesting and entertaining guy, one whose work is on the short list of people to watch. The presentation will be held at our normal venue, the Stonegate clubhouse, which is at 11551 E. Mountain View Road in Scottsdale, beginning at 7:30.
