Susan Taylor Glasgow

Susan Taylor Glasgow’s work pays extensive tribute to the era of Mother, Father, Lucy, Ozzie and Harriet in a language composed of images appropriated from the world of ‘50s and ‘60s TV and advertising.  She says she ‘sews, cooks and arranges’ glass to reconcile the conflict over work and home, feminist ideals and the Madonna complex, duty and fulfillment.  The bustier forms of her Chandelier Dresses are a fantasy, which reminds us of the way things never were.  

 Glasgow grew up in Duluth, Minnesota. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a BFA in Design. Her sculptures are included in the collections of the Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock, AR, the Alexander Tutsek Foundation, Münich, Germany, the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburg, PA, the Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, VA and the Museum of American Glass, Millville, NJ.  Susan Taylor-Glasgow lives and works in Columbia, Missouri.
