Gallery35 presented Glass & Gold—a two-person exhibit of the work of Ellen Mandelbaum and Karen Fitzgerald.
Both recognized artists, each bring a focus on light to their oeuvres. Mandelbaum began her career as a painter, but switched to working with glass. Her work appears in many public spaces; she has been commissioned to create glass-based work across the United States. Fitzgerald has exhibited across the US as well. Her work utilizes gilded grounds and is done on tondo forms. She has been working exclusively with the round form for nearly 30 years. Both artists often work with watercolor as a point of inspiration.
