Richard Marquis: Keepers is a late career survey of a towering figure in the Studio Glass movement. Marquis is known for extraordinary technique, comic sensibility, bold innovations, and iconoclastic spirit. In his 50-year career, he has consistently been gleefully inventive and unfailingly smart. His work is collected and exhibited world-wide.
Objects in the exhibition will be chosen from the artist’s comprehensive archives of his art from the 1960s to the present. Marquis calls these pieces his “keepers.” The galleries will be thematically arranged and include areas of his work that have rarely been exhibited, such as his ceramics and prints.
Organized by Museum of Glass in partnership with Wichita Art Museum. Guest curated by Vicki Halper.
