The exhibition will be open from Feb. 2 through 23, and, the art will be available for purchase. Glottman is both an artist and architect. He has been experimenting with visual art and photography as a second career. Glottman’s photography is not the usual pictures of the world we live in. It is a mixture of form and color approaching the abstract. Glottman describes his work as “fragmentation and the capture of the DNA of time and place.”
At 2 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 18, the Center will hold a poetry workshop event for middle and high school students, based on the exhibition. Space is limited and reservation is required by calling the Center.
A highlight of the Glottman exhibit will be the Center’s Second Tuesday opening reception from 5 until 7 p.m., Feb. 9. The event is open to the public, although donations are requested from non-members of the Center. The reception will feature a wonderful buffet of culinary arts with a surprise caterer.
“these works are built impressions. the end result is a celebration of the fragment; a relic of my memory, cloaked in a minimalist canvas reliquary,” – oscar glottman
