Untiring Venice. After the Film Festival which spotlighted the Red Carpet at the lagoon, Venice Glass Week, the most important International festival dedicated to glass, is set to take place from 9th to 16th September. Among the numerous events programmed to enliven the week is the Cutting Edge – Contemporary Glass Jewelry exhibition, which will be staged at the Vitraria Gallery from 12th September to 7th October on the ground floor of Hotel Nani Mocenigo Palace. Under the curatorship and organization of Adornment, an integrated curatorial  project specifically for contemporary jewelry, the exhibition event is the result of a partnership with Vitraria, an area where artists and designers display their works, interpreted in various forms. The exhibition will be further enriched by a series of artistic productions by Augustina Ros, Biba Schutz, Inou Beru, Mio Toyoda and Paolo Marcolongo in a creative dialogue that highlights talent, creativity and technique through unique and innovative objects. Particular processing methods belonging to glass and jewelry-making traditions combine to give life to contemporary creations made with various materials that perfectly blend to produce tiny works of art.  A significant example of this stylistic orientation is the bronze and Murano glass ring that Paolo Marcolongo made in 2013. A part of this project will be included in the program of the first New York City Jewelry Week, to be held in the  Big Apple from 12th to 18th November 2018.

Not to be missed: a visit to Palazzo Querini, historical building located in Dorsoduro and especially opened for this event. In a prestigious room of this special place, an exhibition called “Chiaroscuro” will be on show for the whole Glass Week. The artist Michela Cattai, bounded both with Venice and Milan, has been selected and invited from the Committee to exhibit her Murano blown glass artworks. A unique selection of pieces made in collaboration with the master glass maker Andrea Zilio, results of a constant experimentation suggested by color and matter in a stylistic sign of the artist.
