This exhibition, organized by the Robert M. Minkoff Foundation and guest curated by Andrew Page for the Robert M. Minkoff Foundation, celebrates the botanical sculptures of an American master, artist Paul Stankard. Stankard’s accomplishments come to life in this remarkable exhibition drawn from the definitive collection of Robert Minkoff, showcasing Stankard’s evolution and major developments from his first attempts at a paperweight to his most complex assemblages.

Beauty Beyond Nature: The Glass Art of Paul Stankard is accompanied by a book of the same name. Lavishly illustrated with detailed photographs that capture never-before-seen levels of detail that bring Stankard’s technical and expressive achievements to life; the book is a perfect accompaniment to this unique exhibition. Beauty Beyond Nature is available for purchase in the Arthur Gorham Paperweight Shop at WheatonArts. Click here for more information about the book.
