Glass artist Michael Taylor, whose work will be featured in a dual exhibit in the Lyndon Baines Johnson Hall at RIT, says he is "fascinated with the mechanical complexity and visual abstractions of scientific apparatus that are within my grasp to simulate." Taylor, who once led RIT's glass art program until his retirement in 2000, is best known for geometric glass sculptures, the result of this fascination. Painter Gary Morse, whose paintings will make up the other half of the exhibit, creates abstract characters out of acrylic in an effort "to remove any literal aspects and create a background using color set in motion."
The dual exhibit runs through August 28 at the NTID Dyer Arts Center, 52 Lomb Memorial Drive. Summer gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, visit rit.edu/ntid/dyerarts.
