This event has ended.

Heller Gallery presents Chroma Revival, our second solo exhibition of work by award-winning, Philadelphia-based artist Amber Cowan.

Cowan’s work asks universal questions about rebirth, knowledge and desire and the transformative powers of labor and imagination. Cowan re-works commercially produced pressed glassware, from some of the best known, but now defunct, glass factories in America. She takes objects, currently relegated to the aesthetic dustbin of history, and reincarnates them into ornate, color-themed abstractions. Her material is sourced from 1950s and ‘60s candy dishes, snack sets and old pressed glass tableware in once collectable colors such as milk (The Lion and the Fox, White Swan Theater), chocolate (Bicentennial Chocolate) or mint green (Spring Mint). Premiering on the East Coast will be her large-scale pieces Sky Blue, Cobalt and Slag and Gray 80. Chroma Revival will also feature her first collaboration with Snick Barnes, Sky Milk and Metal.
