‘An object of beauty’: Metal, fiber and glass featured in show at Fowler-Kellogg

“An Object of Beauty: Metal / Fiber / Glass,” opening Sunday at Fowler-Kellogg Art Center, includes a coping saw made of melted pennies, a crocheted sword from the cartoon “He-Man” and a shovel cast in glass, among other pieces.

Judy Barie, Visual Arts at Chautauqua Institution’s galleries director, said she was looking for unusual and unexpected objects made of each material — metal, fiber and glass — for the exhibit.

“How often do you see an airplane made of glass?” Barie said, pointing out a piece by Travis Rohrbaugh.
