Tim Stover: Linear Integration
The School of Art Collection and Galleries presents Tim Stover: Linear Integration on view at the KSU Downtown Gallery from September 4 through October 5, 2019. An opening reception will take place on Friday, September 6 from 5-7 p.m. during the First Friday Art Walk in downtown Kent. This exhibition is a part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the founding of the glass program at Kent State University's School of Art.
Timothy Stover is a sculptor currently exploring the medium of glass. He earned his B.F.A. in Sculpture from the University of Toledo and his M.F.A. in Glass from Kent State University. Stover received scholarships to study at the Pilchuck Glass School and the Corning Museum of Glass, both of which he later returned to as a teaching assistant. While at Pilchuck, he was introduced to a method of laminating glass that changed the way he approached his art. The tedious and time consuming process of gluing glass together, grinding, and polishing it into new shapes mixed well with the dedication and attention to detail inherent in his sculptural practices. He currently lives and works in Toledo, Ohio where he teaches at the University of Toledo and serves as the casting instructor for the Toledo Museum of Art.
