Exhibition Overview

Tim Tate is Washington, DC’s best known contemporary glass artist, but his latest work has moved toward video installations. Rich in symbol, metaphor, movement, and mystery, videos, like dreams, enable us to participate in another reality and, through that participation, to be transformed. Hidden within is the latent content which will give the viewer an understanding of what is happening in the mind of a dreamer. Featuring collaborations with Pete Duvall and Richard Schellenberg.
