    Special Exhibition: Destined for the Stars - Ricky Bernstein Feb. 1 - Oct.25, 2020

    The whimsical work of noted sculptor Ricky Bernstein will once again grace the walls of the Sandwich Glass Museum with the special exhibition Destined for the Stars.

    Ricky's larger than life sculptures, combine painted glass, aluminum, oil crayon, colored pencil, and mixed-media objects. He notes that  "I make life-sized, three dimensional narrative scenes with cartoon-like figurative imagery."  His work, which often depicts his humorous impressions of the mundane, was greatly influenced by his childhood.  He enjoyed watching the interactions  of his mother with family and friends in their day to day activities.  It was where he developed his concept of heroism, and consequent this exhibition.  Other major influences on his artistic sensibility include the films of Woody Allen and comic strips of Gary Larson, as well as the late Mad Magazine.  Another inspiration are the tv shows of the 1960s including I Love Lucy and The Ed Sullivan Show.

    Ricky studied at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, before earning his master's of fine arts in 1979 at the Tyler Museum of Art.  His art work is included in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Renwick Museum of Art, the Museum of Art and Design in New York City, and the Sandwich Glass Museum.

    Featured in the Sandwich Glass Museum's Special Exhibition Gallery, Destined for the Stars opens on February 1 and will run through June 14, 2020.

    Winter Hours: February & March, Wednesday - Sunday 9:30pm to 4:30pm - Then Daily April - December 9:30 - 5:00 pm
