Bender Gallery is proud to now offer work by The Maestro, Lino Tagliapietra at Asheville's only international fine art and sculpture gallery exhibiting museum-quality work.
The work by world renowned glass artist Lino Tagliapietra can now be viewed at Bender Gallery. The artist that Dale Chihuly has been quoted as “perhaps the world’s greatest living glassblower” is one of the driving forces that helped move the American studio glass movement forward. After coming to Pilchuck in the 70's and imparting centuries old techniques that had been kept secret on the island of Murano he decided to split his time between Murano and here in the US.
