Oct 7, 2016, Independent exhibition in Brooklyn celebrates visions of glass worlds by a new generation, by Malcolm Morano, Glass Quarterly

Norte Maar’s cutting edge visual art program continues in Cypress Hills with an exhibition organized by guest curators Suzanne Peck (artist) and Erin O’Connor (sociologist). Paracosm: new worlds in glass features works that imagine parallel universes through the artists’ experiences and the unique material attributes of glass.
