Traditional Techniques, Contemporary Designs

Minneapolis glass artist Marlo Cronquist will be on-site at Angela Lensch Gallery from June 12 to 14, for the debut of her 2015 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 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. Her 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.

Come to the gallery on June 12, 6 – 8 pm, for a glass of wine and conversation. An artist talk will be held June 13, 10 am – 5 pm. The gallery will feature Cronquist’s newest collection of handblown glass vessels and pendant lights. Marlo will also have samples of her handmade Murrine Glass, for a behind-the-scenes peek into her process.

Angela Lensch Gallery, open daily 10 am – 5 pm, is located at the south end of Egg Harbor, halfway between Patricia Shoppe and Chief Oshkosh at 7653 Highway 42. For more information, visit or call 920.868.5088.
