Chihuly at Cheekwood

Post by minniev »

I’ve always wanted to see one of those glass art exhibits and finally did so this morning in Nashville. Cheekwood is a garden park, so there’s glass sculptures sprinkled all over it. This is a very straight conservative photo (yeah I still do that sometimes) but I bet I’ll think of some ways to use these things in other projects later on.

PS - the photo seems soft on the site though it is sharp on the ipad. I can’t figure out what the problem is so I’m leaving it posted but will probably switch it out later when I figure out what is going on here. New problem.

Hi, Min;
I am a great fan of Dale Chiluly’s work. Since ‘89 I’ve had the opportunity to attend five shows of his works... (Anchorage, Seattle, Portland, Dallas, and Dover)

and am in awe of his amazing artistry. It has also been fascinating to observe how his creativity has pivoted from individual works and small assemblages to far more massive and what I characterize collectively as “tendril assemblages” . I don’t know if he has a collective rubric for these more recent - “ post-monocular” works accomplished since his loss of sight in one eye.
A truly amazing artist!

Dave

Oh, Thanks. But those aren’t my shots; they are from a Chiluly website. Sorry! Shoulda been clear about that!

Dave, Frank, Piet:

Glad to share with someone who's actually seen them. I was as impressed with the arrangements for display as I was with the artwork. Thanks, Dave, for sharing and if you have some you took, please consider adding them to the thread. I'll be adding more. I'm home now, and still don't know exactly what went wrong with the image I posted her so I'm trying another version (computer instead of ipad) to begin figuring it out.

And I also added another, that illustrates what I meant about them integrating the artworks into the gardens themselves.

All five of the Chiluly shows I saw were indoors in museums/galleries and I took no pictures. I’ve never seen his works displayed out-of-doors.

Cheekwood has a medium sized art gallery in the old mansion as well, so some of the indoor pieces were also viewable.

Among the many aspects of Chiluly’s work at which I marvel, not the least is how he manages to prepare those pieces for shipment!
In comparison my stone and glass pieces are clunky things easily protected by bubble wrap/ but these delicately complex accomplishments of Chiluly’s should simply boggle the mind of UPS or FedEx!!!
