Petr Stanický@ North Lands Creative Glass: A Portrait at 20
Works of Czech glassmaker Petr Stanický will be featured at a major exhibition at Dovecot Gallery in Edinburgh. The exhibition will tell the story of North Lands Creative Glass as it celebrates its 20th birthday. Opening on 16 September, North Lands Creative Glass: A Portrait at 20 will chart the centre’s 20 years of experimentation with glass through new commissions, works by past masters and archival materials. This exhibition delves into the North Lands archives and combines works from their study collection, then opens out to showcase major works by ten invited master glass makers.
Petr Stanický is an artist working from a wide material knowledge and extensive skill base. He allows himself the freedom to move between representational and abstract art, traditional and non traditional materials but always with academic rigor. His work has been widely exhibited in Europe and the breadth of his work is reflected in his rich and diverse studies in the Czech Republic and the USA.
