The soft surrealism of glass pieces by pioneering artist Michael Dupille is featured in May at the Burien Arts Gallery.
Meet Michael Dupille at the Artist’s Reception Friday, May 6, 5-8 p.m. at the Gallery, 826 S.W. 152nd St. in Olde Burien.
The exhibit runs May 4-May 28.
Michael Dupille helped pioneer the kiln-formed glass movement in the 1980s. He developed and refined the fritography technique for “painting with glass,” using crushed glass in combination with kiln-fired methods. Many of Michael’s working methods and materials have become standards in the industry.
He has produced large scale commissions for public and private entities as well as gallery art and individual elements using fused crushed glass.
Michael’s numerous private and public commissions include projects for Field Museum in Chicago, Washington State Arts Commission, Oregon State Arts Commission, Pierce County Arts Commission, Everett Cultural Commission, Seattle Times, Washington State Bar Association, Threshold Foundation, and Seattle Mariners.
Several members of local artists club Artists United will also display their work.
