Andy Bio Pic

On Thursday, May 14, join Portland-based artist Andy Paiko for an exploration of fellow Northwest artist William Morris’ Artifact Panel, a two-story panel composed of more than 250 glass objects.

Andy Paiko is a glass artist who examines the role of glass in relation to its function, making objects that try to both communicate and imitate purpose. His work has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions at the Natalie and James Thompson Gallery at San Jose State University, the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland. Transference, his collaborative installation with musician Ethan Rose, has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, and the San Francisco Museum of Craft and Design.

The talk will last approximately one hour and is followed by a complimentary social hour in the Museum café with wine generously provided by Dominio IV Wines.

Program begins at 6 p.m. $5 members, $15 non-members, $12 seniors. Space is limited.
