Clear and Present Danger

Featuring Claire Lieberman’s “Ice Guns” series in a duo show with Jason Maas, discover art that is both dangerous and beautiful + live music by The Judy Blooms and a performance piece by Maiko Kikucki. “Ice Guns” is a series of glass sculptures rendered in transparent, colored or sparkling blown and hot-sculpted glass. “Traversing a range from realistic and lethal-looking to childlike ray-gun fantasies, [Lieberman’s Ice Guns] make us question our illusions of childhood’s playful innocence by reminding us of the child’s all too real fascination with violence.” explains art historian and critic, Howard Risatti. Jason Maas’s large-scale graphite and charcoal drawings explore how we view journalistic images of social unrest that proliferate in the media.
