Chihuly Garden and Glass…Seattle Part 2
At the Chihuly Garden and Glass, Dale Chihuly takes his work beyond traditional indoor gallery presentations creating elaborate installations that flow on floors, walls, ceilings and the outdoors.
We were welcomed into this unbelievable exhibition that explores the inspiration and influences of Northwest artist Dale Chihuly with kindness and independence. What do I mean by this statement? Well, as a photographer I want to be able to explore and capture images without supervision and interruption. You have complete leisure and freedom here to roam to take in all this majestic beauty and culture.
Entering the Sealife Room…
The artwork in the Exhibition Hall reveals how he pushed the boundaries of glass as an art medium in concept, execution and presentation.
I want people to be overwhelmed with light and color in a way they have never experienced. ~ Dale Chihuly
In the Garden, four monumental sculptures and other installations rest among a rich backdrop of trees, plants and flowers.
I love to find beauty in everyday objects. ~ Dale Chihuly
The Glasshouse, a 40-foot tall glass and steel structure, was inspired by Chihuly’s appreciation for conservatories and includes a 100-foot ong suspended sculpture.
This exhibition included both indoor and outdoor spaces and the Glasshouse…Oh, be still my heart. The beauty and vision of this artist is BEYOND breathtaking and by far will become one of Seattle’s best landmarks in the future. I can’t recommend this enough to YOU my friend.
Tip of the Day for Photographers/Bloggers:
Put Silica Gel Packets in each compartment of all your camera gear bags.
This will absorb moisture, preventing damage to your products.
Where do you find these small white packets you might ask? In all most everything you purchase!
So start looking for them and put them to good use.
Are you an art lover?
Did you sigh more for the indoor or the outdoor sculptures?
