McElheny is a master glass blower, with a deep respect for and understanding of the history of glass and art. In addition to celebrating the beauty and allure of reflective surfaces, his work often carries layers of meaning.
Your reflection is unavoidable as you stand in front of Mirror Drawing. Here, among a selection of contemporary renderings of the human figure and individual portraits, McElheny’s mirrored surface reflects your face, and you now join those on view.
