Our glass collections feature stunning studio glass by Chihuly and Lalique.
WMODA will be open Saturday, April 04, 2020 from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M. and will honor the Smithsonian Museum Day Ticket for free admission for two people.
Current exhibits include:
Art on Fire · The Chihuly Connection An exhibition featuring the creative exuberance of Chihuly’s glass art. A fabulous Macchia garden bursts into bloom at WMODA along with Ikebana flower arrangements. A Persian wall is accompanied by Chihuly’s paintings for the original installation. Chihuly’s luminous Baskets and Seaforms vie for attention with his flamboyant Venetians.
The Art of the Flame An exhibition honoring Paul J. Stankard, the living master of flameworking. Paul creates microcosms of nature with glass flowers made petal by petal and embedded in crystal paperweights and orbs. The 68 works on display span his 50-year career as a flame-worker.
Constellations An exhibition of hot glass by Rob Stern reflecting his 30 years as a glassblower. Rob is known particularly for his windstar glass sculptures which he blows with infinite color and cane patterning variations. Coming down to earth, Rob also enjoys the minutiae of nature and studies leaves, seed pods, shells and coral formations for his brilliant glass sculptures.
Carnival & Cabaret – An exhibition exploring the flamboyant festivals in Venice, Rio, New Orleans and the Caribbean as seen by porcelain artists from Europe. The masks of Mardi Gras and other carnivals take their inspiration from the Italian Commedia dell’Arte, which has entertained European cities from the 16th century onwards.
