Alma's is honored to present these new works by artist Morgan Gilbreath. These are included in the exhibition Common Era. Common Era explores the passage of time through labor, process, found and collected materials. From a decade of calendar planners and a team’s worth of cheerleading uniforms, to every ball used in the artist’s elementary school gym - these peripheral objects are deconstructed, processed, and re-created into sculptures which oscillate between devotional objects, personal memorials, contemporary monuments
Morgan Gilbreath is a glass and mixed-media artist whose process-driven work investigates the intersections between religion, history, and labor. She holds a BFA in Glass and a BA in Art History from Tyler School of Art (Temple University) in Philadelphia. She’s completed residencies at the Creative Glass Center of America (Wheaton Arts), Pilchuck Glass School, and the University of Texas Arlington. Exhibiting nationally and internationally, her work is in the permanent collection at the Museum of American Glass (Millville, NJ) and the Aldo Bellini Glass Collection at Castello Sforzesco (Milan, Italy).

Every handmade piece at Alma’s is a story of its craft.
