Minneapolis glass artist Marlo Cronquist will be at Angela Lensch Gallery on June 10, 10 am – 5 pm, for the debut of her 2017 Murrine Glass Collection. Cronquist first started working with glass while studying sculpture and furniture design at Minneapolis College of Art & Design, where she shared a studio with now gallery owner Angela Lensch. Cronquist transferred those skills to glasswork at the Minnesota Center for Glass Arts in Minneapolis where she has studied and now teaches. She also studied at the world-renowned Corning Museum of Glass in New York, with Bill Gudenrath, John Miller and Maestro Davide Salvadore. Cronquist’s work is best known for its use of color and its balance between traditional techniques and contemporary design. She finds inspiration from the art and cultures of the places she has traveled to such as Italy, Morocco and Spain.
Cronquist will have samples of her handmade Murrine Glass for a behind-the-scenes peek into her process and her most recent experience at Pilchuck Glass School. The gallery is located at 7653 Highway 42, on the south end of Egg Harbor, and is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm; the gallery is closed Wednesdays. Parking is available on site.
