In our 2014 winter/spring exhibition, “Earth, Wind & Fire”, Tucson stone sculptor Merlin Cohen joins glass artists Mark Abildgaard and Caleb Nichols in a tribute to the natural elements. Cohen’s abstract sculptures are graceful and soothing in contrast to the upheavals that birthed the stone. Abildgaard’s finished kiln cast glass brings to mind crystals found in nature. Nichol’s blown glass forms are broken and then fused into sculptures evocative of the geologic forces that create mountains, or of the frothy, foamy ocean he grew up with.
