    Special Exhibition:  Perception : Lightpaintings by Stephen Knapp

    The Sandwich Glass Museum is pleased to present several lightpaintings by artist Stephen Knapp (1947-2017), who was one of a small group of artists what worked with both glass and light.

    Formed at the intersection of painting, sculpture, and architecture, Knapp's lightpaintings are multi-dimensional compositions of pure radiance.  His works were created by using a special glass treated with layers of metallic coatings that act as a selective prisms to separate focused light into different wavelengths of the spectrum.  Knapp then shaped and polished the glass to make a palate that refelcted light onto a surface and he surrounding space.  Stehen Knapp's lightpaintings will be featured through December 30, 2020 in the Hirschmann Theater.  This exhibit was made possible through the generosity of the Stephen Knapp Family Trust.
