The World Comes to North Carolina
Prints from Littleton Studios
Wasmer Art Gallery
December 7, 2020 - March 4, 2021
The FGCU Art Galleries’ collection of vitreograph prints from Littleton Studios continues to grow with the continued generous donations of prints from Carol L. Shay. This will be a revolving display of prints throughout the exhibition dates. These prints come out of a process originated by renowned glass artist Harvey Littleton. Littleton invited artists to his studios in Spruce Pine, North Carolina to work using this unique printmaking process of printing from glass plates. The most recent gift includes prints from accomplished international artists such as Glen Alps, Walter Darby Bannard, Erwin Eisch, Harvey Littleton, Hollis Sigler and Ann Wolff.

Thomas Buechner's vitreograph series entitled Das Rheingold was created at Harvey Littleton's studio in Spruce Pine, NC in 1988.
The series was inspired by his favorite opera, Richard Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung.
