The Avenue 50 Studio presents Howard Swerdloff’s Glass Gourd Mosaic, at the Avenue 50 Studio until August 7, 2011.  Howard Swerdloff, artist and owner of Howeeduzzit Gallery, curates a sort of Bazaar of fine art glass, gourds and mosaic.  This is an intensely abundant presentation encompassing an orgy of styles; where color, form and shape jump wildly throughout the space.  Each piece vies for attention in this candyland of Glass Gourd and Mosaic.
making has a cloudy beginning.  No one knows exactly when or where glass was first made, but it appears as far back as the second millennium BC in Egypt.  The gourd’s history is similar in that the plant has been used for thousands of years – and a great many countries around the world.  The method of incising and burning is still popularly used today.  Mosaic is one of the oldest art forms known to mankind, beginning in the early culture of Ancient Mesopotami
Please join me in experiencing the intensity of our Glass Gourd Mosaic show.
