LUXUS is an exhibition that will take place over twenty venues throughout the Gaffer District in Corning NY for the duration of the Glass Art Society conference, June 9th-11th 2016.

The Glass Art Society conference will see approximately 2000 artists, gallerists and collectors descending on the city of Corning for the weekend. LUXUS will be open for the duration of the conference and also be the pinnacle of the GAS conference Gallery Hop on Friday night, June 10th.

Interior spaces, such as empty stores and shop fronts will be available for exhibition as well as external spaces suitable for pop-up installations, performances and projections.

We are accepting proposals from artists working in any discipline who are using light as material. Applications for site-specific installation, object based work as well as video, performance and projection considered.

Sculpture Faculty Brett Hunter at UTC


COOP Gallery is pleased to present “Like Riding a Bike,” an interactive installation by Katie Hargrave and Brett Hunter. Artists Katie Hargrave and Brett Hunter take the axiom about memory and ability, “it’s like riding a bicycle,” and create a platform for conversations about lifelong learning, skill sharing, and cycling. What do we know? How do we learn? What will we never forget?

Hargrave and Hunter have been using participatory storytelling to collect stories about learning to ride a bike, freedom and fear, and skills we have that we will never forget. They invite the audience to participate, get on a bike within the gallery, and listen to these stories.

This will be Hargrave and Hunter’s first exhibition in Nashville, and the artists will be present at the opening reception and at COOP’s NADB event on Friday, April 3rd.
