Inspired Design: The Glass of Frederick Carder, runs from May 22 through September 9 and features works from the Forsyth’s Runyon Collection, showcasing prime examples of decorative art from one of the most prolific and well-known glass designers of the late 19th and early 20th century.
Frederick Carder (1863-1963) first made his mark as an inexhaustible designer for the English firm of Stevens & Williams, where during his 22-year tenure he worked with his mentor John Northwood I to create over 23,500 designs.
He then moved across the Atlantic, co-founding Steuben Glass Works in Corning, New York with Thomas G. Hawkes and serving as the firm’s chief designer. There he continued designing at a rate that seems impossible to fathom, creating thousands of shapes and decorative elements that are attributed to him today. We invite you to see this amazing exhibit at Forsyth Galleries!
At Retreat at 2818 Apartments in Bryan, Texas, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Saturday!
