Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light
Organized by The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass

October 6–November 29
Advance, timed tickets are required. First responders receive free admission to Reynolda House through Dec. 31.
Light is in bloom at Reynolda this fall.

Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light includes five windows, twenty lamps, and several displays showing how Tiffany glass was manufactured, how his lamps were assembled, and how collectors today can distinguish between authentic lamps and forgeries. The exhibition features some of the most celebrated of Tiffany’s works. Chosen for their masterful rendering of nature in flowers or landscape scenes, they exemplify the rich and varied glass palette, sensitive color selection, and intricacy of design that was characteristic of Tiffany studios.

Virtual Talk
Meet the Author

Tuesday, October 6
3 p.m.
$15, $10 Museum Members
Hot off the press in July of this year, Patrick Diamond’s multilayered debut memoir, The Incredible Joy of Collecting African American Art: My Journey from Frog Town, S.C. to the National Gallery, describes the tremendous impact of a grandmother’s love and how art educated one young child about his own history and culture. The author will discuss what he and his wife Judy learned over the course of four decades of collecting art; and a question and answer session will follow the discussion. Diamond is a past member of Reynolda’s National Advisory Council and former Development Director of the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts + Culture in Charlotte.
