Ellen Miret's “Glass & Graphics,” an exhibit of fused glass tiles, interactive lenticular images and prints will be featured at Sarah Lawrence's Esther Raushenbush Library from April 2–29. A reception will be held on Sunday, April 3 at 2 p.m. in the library. Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
“The lenticular images are kinetic- one must move around them to see the multiple images—and must be mindful of other people as they also engage the work. A metaphorfor how we engage with the world—or not,” says the artist.
The exhibit is dedicated to Miret's friend Robert Owen, the late organist of Christ Church in Bronxville. The featured work will be a compilation of pieces from shows Miret created after she met Owen, whom she cites as a consistent, “muse-like” presence in her artistic career since he commissioned her work in 1994. Pieces will be from the 9/11-inspired show “Art That Heals — Words and Images to Move the Spirit and Awaken the Soul,” as well as “Image in Reflection: A Collaboration of Art and Prayer” which premiered at the Gallery at the American Bible Society in 2004.
Ellen Miret is a fifth generation artist, who has been working in glass since the late '70s. Most of her commissions are for churches, temples, and mausoleums. She creates fused glass panels and prints from her studio in Ramsey, New Jersey.
