ART ON FIRE – THE CHIHULY CONNECTION

 

Dale Chihuly is arguably the most famous glass artist in the world. His name draws vast crowds to site- specific glass installations across the globe as well as to art galleries and museums internationally. The stunning “Art on Fire” exhibit at WMODA presents the creative exuberance of Chihuly’s glass art. A fabulous Macchia garden seems to burst into bloom along with impressive Ikebana flower arrangements. A monumental Persian wall is accompanied by Chihuly’s paintings for the original installation. Chihuly’s luminous Baskets and sensual Seaforms vie for attention with his flamboyant Venetians. A Chihuly Venetian was once described as a vase which has had an affair with a chandelier. Decide for yourself at WMODA!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chihuly is the most innovative and influential glass artist of modern times, thanks to his teaching, teamwork, and artistic collaborations. Many of his friends, followers and mentors are represented at WMODA, including Toots Zynsky, William Morris, Lino Tagliapietra and Pino Signoretto. Visit the “Art on Fire” exhibit at WMODA and discover how these hot glass artists are all connected to Chihuly and how his favorite cities, Venice and Seattle, are fused together through a shared passion for glass.

 

 

 

 

 

CARNIVAL & CABARET

 

 

It’s party time at the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts as we celebrate the art of having fun at our exhibition “Carnival & Cabaret”. The Carnival & Cabaret exhibit explores the flamboyant festivals in Venice, Rio and New Orleans as seen by porcelain artists from Europe. The centerpiece of our new exhibit is Carnival in Venice, a monumental masterpiece full of masked revelers in porcelain by Lladró of Spain. Discover how Harlequin and Columbine and other characters from the Italian Commedia dell’Arte have influenced carnival fun, the art of clowning and masquerade balls through the ages. Masking was particularly popular during the roaring 1920s to disguise the flirtatious behavior of the flappers. Cabaret and variety shows in early 20th century Paris and Berlin also reveled in the theatrical excesses of carnival costumes.

 

 

 

FANTASTIQUE

 

 

 

“Fantastique” celebrates the enchanted world of ceramic art at WMODA. From myths and monsters to fairies and fables, you will be spellbound by the flights of fancy of European ceramic artists during the last two centuries. Fire-breathing dragons of the Dark Ages do battle with heroic knights or guard the treasures of the Eastern seas. Mermaids and other wonders of the deep beguile mariners while pixies, goblins and other denizens of Fairyland enchant children and adults alike. The mysteries of life and the age-old conflicts between good and evil, darkness and light, life and death are interpreted by sages, seers and truth-seekers in the universal myths of the world. On the dark side, there are macabre witches, wizards, ghosts and ghouls, while good angels and cherubs bring blessings from heaven and cupid’s arrow initiates love and new life.

 

 

 

 

ARDMORE CERAMIC ART

 

 

 

A giant smiling hippopotamus greets you as you enter the contemporary ceramics gallery at the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts and visitors can’t stop smiling in return. The hippo was made by Ardmore Ceramic Arts, a thriving artist collective in the picturesque Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. The studio was started over thirty years ago by Fée Halsted, a talented ceramic artist who teaches local men and women how to make and decorate pottery. There are now around 70 sculptors and painters in the Ardmore studio making whimsical and uplifting works of art. As well as hippos, the Ardmore exhibition includes many other African animals which burst out of luxuriant foliage to form vibrant vases, tureens and bowls. Ardmore ceramic art is one of the most popular features at the WMODA Museum and it’s worth a visit just to see this exhibit.

 

 

 

 

 

THE ART OF TEA

 

 

Elegant china enriches the tea-drinking experience as can be seen at the “Art of Tea” exhibition at the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts. Discover how skilled potters have provided the most appropriate tea services to suit all tastes and budgets for the last three centuries. Whether you drink tea hot or cold, using loose leaves or teabags, in the morning, afternoon or evening, you’ll be charmed by the sophisticated, ingenious and even quirky designs by Wedgwood, Royal Doulton and other famous makers.
