In and Out of the Cage

The Duncan McClellan Gallery proudly presents “IN and OUT of the CAGE” with Marc Petrovic and Kari Russell-Pool!

At 5pm on Saturday, March 8th, the gallery doors will open to reveal amazing glass artistry from husband and wife, Marc Petrovic and Kari Russell-Pool, both graduates of the Cleveland Institute of Art, where the former received the prestigious Agnes Gund Memorial Scholarship.

While they have distinct approaches, they do share ideas and they have shown their work and presented demonstrations across the country and abroad.  We are pleased to have them in St. Pete.

Ms. Russell-Pool takes a “watercolor approach” in creating her flame-worked glass sculpture Coloring with glass powders, and pulling her own glass rods, allows her an extraordinary control over color.

Mr. Petrovic’s “pieces revolve around ideas that both intrigue and befuddle me. While these pieces ask a lot of questions, they attempt to answer none. They simply serve as a way to contain and continue a dialogue. At the nucleus of each sculpture is an idea around which the piece grows. In a sense, the way a grain of sand aggravates the oyster enough that it creates a pearl.” Here’s a video of one of Marc’s demos:
