Visual Arts, Architecture — Excursion, Talks and Discussion
Visit the Travel Manitoba visitor information centre to discover Warren Carther’s glasswork art. This venue is conveniently located at the Forks, just look for the “i” in the sky to find us.
Carther’s glass prototypes are not scale models, but show the colors and carving techniques of proposed large scale works in a new composition. In doing so, they become sculptural works in themselves. The prototypes are from some of Carther’s largest works, located in airports and other public spaces worldwide.

Warren Carther’s inventive, large scale work has placed him at the forefront of the contemporary glass sculpting movement. His work is not easily categorized as his concerns lay equally with painterly ideas of surface, as with three dimensional form and structure. His work negotiates the line between abstraction and representation and is informed by various elements from nature and the densely built environments of human urbania. These works emerge from the social and cultural context in which they are placed. He adopts a spectrum of collaborative strategies and methods of enquiry that result in ideas that evolve in several directions. His ideas are based in creation of syntax within the spatial context of the architecture. A strong believer in art that needs to live in the real world. Carther wants viewers to experience his works in their everyday lives.
