Label TextA major gift from the Tony Feher estate, GMP features the artist's use of everyday objects to capture the transitory interactions of natural light and color. Vintage glasses, found in antique and thrift stores, are strung in lines, allowing light to pass through their bright, patterned surfaces. The work is the second sculpture by Feher to enter the collections, and is typical of his minimal, yet joyful art. Source: Bulletin (News) Jan Feb Mar 2020
