Chrysler Museum of Art“The De la Torre Brothers” – Visiting Artists
CM Glass Studio / 745 Duke Street / Norfolk, VA 23510
September 19 - 23, 2012
The Chrysler Museum Glass Studio presents a year-long series of free exhibitions and demonstrations from internationally known artists.
From September 19 - 23, 2012, Einar and Jamex de la Torre worked live in our Studio, wowing the audience with intricately detailed works of glass sculptural art. The pieces were crafted colorful bit by colorful bit, and the amount of detail in many of the pieces was a sight to behold.
Active in the glass art world since the 1980s, they are well-known for assemblage style of work. They have exhibited their work in France, Japan, Canada, Germany, Venezuela, and Brazil--as well as in the U.S. and Mexico-- and their work is in the permanent collections of some of the finest glass art institutions in the world.
The brothers also provided a special treat for a student field trip from a Spanish class—a demo conducted entirely en espanol.
