Weyrich Gallery presents Narratives, kilnworked glass sculpture by four recognized Albuquerque area glass artists: Jerry Barnett, Emily Brock, Sarah Nelson and Marcia Newren. Jerry Barnett states, “My art is instinctual, with a preoccupation with balance, color and rhythm.” Emily Brock combines many different techniques to create intricate narrative. Sarah Nelson states, “I think of my work as inventories of compositional lines and shapes inspired by, but not literal translations of, my drawings, paintings and photographs.” Marcia Truell Newren investigates her glass process like an anthropologist out in the field.
