This event has ended.

The Czech artist and sculptor Jaroslava Brychtova will turn ninety on July 18th. Heller Gallery celebrates her birthday and the more than 30-year relationship the gallery has had with her and her life and art partner Stanislav Libensky, with an exhibition of some very select sculptures.

On view is the 1999 casting of Sphere in a Cube, which was displayed in the opening exhibition of the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington. The massive Cube in Sphere was included in the Libenskys’ 2002 retrospective exhibition at the National Gallery in Prague, the last opening professor Libensky attended. This will be the first time since the initial showing of either sculpture that they will be on public view. It is also the inaugural US showing of the 2002 Cube in Sphere. The massive sculptures in the exhibition contrast with one of Jaroslava and Stanislav’s earliest and most intimate works the Kiss.

The 1993 Blue Pyramid, also included in the exhibition, has already received a great nod in the Summer issue of Art & Antiques, where it was pronounced an ‘Object of Desire.’ We couldn’t agree more!

Jaroslava Brychtova and Stanislav Libensky forever changed the way glass will be used and viewed as a sculptural medium. Their undeniable impact has already touched several generations of artists who work with material. Libensky and Brychtova’s legacy is housed in prestigious private collections and in more than 50 museums internationally.
