October 2 - November 1, 2014
reception thursday, october 2nd 5-8pm


Preston Singletary is widely regarded as a leader in both the works of Northwest Coast Native art and studio glass. He is known for bringing a new material to an ancient tradition. In He Who Spins Illusions, Singletary's newest exhibition, the artist delves deeply into the mythic sub-currents of Tlingit emblems and iconography. Interested in the important tradition of storytelling in his native Tlingit culture, Singletary brings a fresh and newly imagined narrative to this most recent body of work.

It is our pleasure to introduce 64° South, April Surgent's first solo exhibition with Traver Gallery. A spirit of experimentation, with one foot in the past and one in the future, has set Surgent apart as a glass artist. Her intensive, centuries-old cameo engraving process together with her passion for investigating and understanding our contemporary environments come together in this newest body of work to depict a compelling portrait of the ice-covered, stark, and quickly changing landscape of the Antarctic.
