“Glass Cathedrals” are a series of tiny worlds in boxes. “Magical, absurd, comic, tragic, poetic, each box contains an entire emotional world, with figurines not much taller than a pea,” says Swerling.
“The Artstream is honored to offer a sneak peak of a very special show celebrating the beauty and uniqueness of this area we get to call home,” Victor-Smith adds. “Here, it’s beautiful” is Swerling’s latest collection of Glass Cathedrals containing different perspectives of the San Francisco Bay Area. The artboxes will be shown throughout the Bay Area in the first three weeks of April and the full exhibition opens at Rare Device in San Francisco on April 26.
Artstream will also be showing an array of Swerling’s classic dioramas as well as limited edition prints.
The 411: Mill Valley native Melanie Victor-Smith’s Artstream, her mobile art gallery inside her 1954 Airstream trailer, is exhibiting the “Glass Cathedrals” of artist Lisa Swerling on Saturday, April 6 at the Farmer’s Market at Marin Country Mart in Larkspur, 9am-2pm. MORE INFO.
