Painting with Fire exhibition at LB Museum of Art
Painting with Fire! During the mid-twentieth century, the artform of enameling was highly popular in the US. Enameling involves fusing glass to metal through an extremely high temperature firing process. It achieves brilliant colors and metallic textures. During the 50’s and 60’s, enameled pieces were a popular wedding gift, and since all things mid-century have gained popularity again, thus a renewed appreciation- and that’s a good thing! The
Long Beach Museum of Art is currently having a great exhibit called
“Painting with Fire- masters of enameling, 1930-1980” that showcases 15 artists and their contribution to the artform.
