Opening Reception: Thursday, October 1, 5pm – 8pm

Vetri is pleased to present Distortions, a solo exhibition featuring a new series by New York artist Jamie Harris.

In this body of work, Harris captures the innate way glass transmits, reflects, and absorbs color. Through a variety of vessels and wall installations, he captures the beauty of molten glass as it stretches and moves. Harris is able to create tension in the the work by deflating some forms and slashing the surface of others. The mirrored surfaces create sophisticated and mysterious forms that play off their surroundings as they reflect distortions and cast shadows. Also included in this exhibition are incalmo orbs that are an examination of color contrast within a more sculptural format.

Jamie Harris is an artist and designer working out of his studio in Brooklyn, NY. Harris’ work is distinguished by his unique and painterly use of color and design. After earning a BA in Comparative Literature from Brown University, he went on to study glass at Pilchuck Glass School, Rhode Island School of Design, Penland School of Crafts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and The Studio at Corning Museum of Glass. He has achieved numerous accomplishments in his developing career, including having his work published in New Glass Review, and earning fellowships and awards from esteemed organizations including the Corning Museum of Glass, Creative Glass Center of America, and Brooklyn Arts Council. His work is held in private and public collections internationally.

Join us for the debut of this special exhibition on Thursday, October 1st, from 5pm-8pm during First Thursday Art Walk.
