Hudson Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibit titled “Libby Glasscutters”, a solo exhibition of drawings by Daniel Mauk  on view at the downtown Sylvania, Ohio gallery.

Mauk’s drawings are off balance realistic renderings of the varying subjects completed in wild, unnatural colors. His colors are carefully chosen to best reflect the story he is trying to tell and the mood being established. The artist is interested in the way the world operates. He states “my role as an artist, as a story-teller, is to respond to the world - the good, the bad, and the ugly - and hopefully start conversations between people”. 

In this body of work Mauk explores the world of an imaginary late 60’s single A baseball team from Toledo, the Libby Glasscutters. The artist explains, “It was so much fun coming up with the legend of the Libbey Glasscutters and building characters to fit in with this Toledo treasure. Did the Glasscutters have an overbearing, yet totally adorable kid who went to all their games and insisted they look good? Of course they did, Cookie is her name. Did they have a peanut-counting accountant? Yes, meet Vincent. Did Bobby Jett really bring his chicken to every game? Of course, it was the 1960s”!

Join in on opening night, visit with the artist and explore the diverse world of the Libby Glasscutters in this engaging solo exhibition of local artist Daniel Mauk.

OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY June 7th, 6-8pm

Exhibit is free and open to the public.
