Art Collection of John and Joyce Price at the Bellevue Arts Museum



The Bellevue Arts Museum presents the exhibition Eyes for Glass, featuring three different areas of the Price Collection, of which the majority is composed by contemporary works in glass.
John Price started his art collection when he was a young adult, with particular interest in the works of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
During the mid 1970's, John and Joyce Price became fond of the Contemporary Inuit Art, whose collection includes works of distinguished artists such as Kenojuak Ashevak, Joe David and Preston Singletary.
During the last 50 years or so, the Contemporary Inuit artists have approached a style deeply rooted in naturalism, with many of them developing a preference for highly polished sculptures during the last decade.
By the late 1970's, John learned of the existence of Pilchuck Glass School and started collecting glass art using several techniques and styles, namely blown, cold-worked, sand-cast, fused and slumped.
Among other names are those of Dale Chihuly, Fritz Dreisbach, Walt Lieberman and Cappy Thompson.
The Eyes for Glass exhibition runs through August 8, 2010 at the Bellevue Arts Museum in Washington and includes the following artists: Sean Albert, Kenojuak Ashevak, Jane Beebe, Lisbeth Biger, Sonja Blomdahl, Curtiss Brock, Frederick Carder, Dale Chihuly, Joe David, Einar and Jamex de la Torre, Laura de Santillana, Steven DeVries, Fritz Dreisbach, Tom Farbanish, Gisele et Regis Fievet, Fabio Fornasier, Kyohei Fujita, Saburo Funakoshi, Lewis Tamihana Gardiner, Ann Gardner, Mitchell Gaudet, Katherine Gray, Gregory Grenon, Susan Holland Reed, James Houston, Clarissa Rizal, Ulrica Hydman-Vallien, Ryosuke Kinoshita, Joey Kirkpatrick, Sabrina Knowles, David Leight, Walter Lieberman, Flora Mace, Joanna Manousis, Dante Marioni, Paul Marioni, Massimo Micheluzzi, Ohotaq Mikkigak, Yasuko Miyazaki, Tobias Mohl, Benjamin Moore, William Morris, Mel Munsen, Felice Nittolo, Marvin Oliver, Allan Packer, Jackie Pancari, Danny Perkins, Shaun Peterson, Susan Point, Annie Pootoogook, Jill Reynolds, Richard Royal, Ginny Ruffner, Judith Schaechter, Preston Singletary, David Schwartz, Therman Statom, Susan Stinsmuehlen-Amend, Lino Tagliapietra, Cappy Thompson, Cesare Toffolo Rossit, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Veruska Vagen, Bertil Vallien, Laura Ward, Dick Weiss, Sally Worcester, William Worcester, Hiroshi Yamano, Mark Zirpel and Toots Zynsky.

Too bad the Bellevue Arts Museum is all the way across the country! I'd love to see the Whale Rider piece in person - it's intriguing!
