First Tuesdays: Meet the Artist with Lyn Gentry
Tuesday, March 5, 2019, Perdido Key Visitor Information Center
Every first Tuesday of the month, artist Lyn Gentry showcases her work at the Perdido Key Visitor Information Center.
Lyn studied with the renowned glass artist and designer, Narcissus Quagliata, whose works are in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum, Corning Museum of Glass, and Renwick Gallery, with installations at the Charles Schwab Building in San Francisco and the Franz Mayer Museum in Mexico City, to name a few. It was Quagliata who developed the concept of using glass as a method to manipulate light to enrich a living environment and to use glass rather than canvas to express the nature of light within a design.
With this discovery, Lyn knew she had found the right medium for her artistic expression that would allow her to create and develop her designs. Lyn creates her pieces by and shaping hot glass using a kiln. Her pieces vary from functional glassware, such as bowls, platters, and vases, to large, custom-designed architectural pieces that require scaffolding for installation.
