MORRISTOWN, NJ.- This month, a solo exhibition of the work of Lino Tagliapietra opens at the Morris Museum. Showcasing over thirty objects, “Lino Tagliapietra: Maestro of a Glass Renaissance” is on view from March 12 to June 18, 2017, and highlights Tagliapietra's place in the art historical canon as both a champion of the Muranese tradition and an innovative force among contemporary artists working in glass.

Lino Tagliapietra’s career is defined by a dedication to workmanship, innovation, and collaboration. Born in 1934 on the Venetian island of Murano, Tagliapietra became an apprentice at the age of eleven and achieved the rank of master by the age of twenty-one. For more than forty-two years, he worked in and designed for the glass factories of Murano, including Vetreria Galliano Ferro, Venini & Co., and Effetre International. Since 1989, Tagliapietra has been an independent artist, exhibiting in museums around the globe and helping to create a new renaissance in studio glassmaking.

“Lino Tagliapietra: Maestro of a Glass Renaissance” showcases works from the past two decades by this world-renowned glass master. Curated with works from private and the artist’s own collections, the exhibition features Tagliapietra's blown glass vessels, graceful aerial works for which the artist is renowned, and his newer two-dimensional fused glass panels.

“Lino Tagliapietra: Maestro of a Glass Renaissance” is being organized by the Morris Museum, in cooperation with Schantz Galleries, Stockbridge, Massachusetts, Jim Schantz and Kim Saul, owners. The exhibition is being curated by Alexandra Willis, Curator at the Morris Museum and Jim Schantz, Director of Schantz Galleries.
