Please note Dan Ripley's lecture, originally scheduled for June 7 on the Indiana Art Glass Alliance Calendar has been changed to this panel discussion in the Basile Auditorium at the Herron School of art on June 27.
Ardent collectors of art glass Linda and Zeke Friedlander wanted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the medium in the United States. A selection from their collection will be on display as a part of the Indy Collects show, which opens June 15 and continues through July 26 in Herron’s Berkshire, Reese and Paul Galleries. They mentioned their idea to Herron’s Gallery Director Paula Katz.
Katz paired them with decorative arts and antiques expert Dan Ripley and glass artist Ben Johnson, and put a panel discussion together. The event will cater to glass aficionados and those who want to learn more about this gorgeous, evolving art form. The event will take place on June 27 in the Basile Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. and feature brief talks by the panelists on their relationship with glass as connoisseur, collectors and artist.
