Litvak Gallery announces collaboration with the “HaMizgaga Museum” and invites you to “Garden of Eden in Glass” – a Richard Jolley solo exhibition
Opening reception May 3rd, 10:30 am at the HaMizgaga Museum, Kibbutz Nahsholim, Israel
Exhibition dates: May 3 – October 27, 2019.
The Mizgaga museum is located in a 19th century stone building in the heart of Kibbutz Nahsholim, at the foot of Mt. Carmel, a short walking distance from the beautiful Dor beach. The impressive stone building was the former Mizgaga Glassworks Factory established in 1891 by Baron Rothschild to produce glass bottles for the Baron’s wine industry.
HaMizgaga displays both the history of the glassworks factory; the story of the first industries in the early days of Zionism, and the important archeological artifacts unearthed in the Dor excavations, including unique glass items and the most antique mosaic in Israel.
As a part of the collaboration between the museum and Litvak the Museum is exhibiting a solo exhibition by Richard Jolley named “Garden of Eden in Glass”. The exhibition includes wall pieces and standalone monumental glass sculptures that range from Jolly’s vibrant colors to his black opaque glass.
