Special Exhibit: Perception: Lightpaintings by Stephen Knapp
December 30$2 – $12
Perception : Lightpaintings by Stephen Knapp – ends Dec. 30, 2020.
The Sandwich Glass Museum is pleased to present several lightpaintings by artist Stephen Knapp (1947-2017), who was one of a small group of artists that worked with glass and light.
Formed at the intersection of painting, sculpture and architecture, Knapp’s lightpaintings are multi-dimensional compositions of pure radiance. His works were created by using a special glass treated with layers of metallic coatings that act as a selective prism to separate focused light into different wavelengths of the spectrum.
Knapp then shaped and polished the glass to make a palate that reflected light onto a surface and the surrounding space. This exhibit was made possible through the generosity of the Stephen Knapp Family Trust.
