I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.

Marking The Path features a celebrated group of international studio glass artists. Their contemporary practice is part of a lineage from the American mid-20th Century movement, whereby glass production moved from large factories to small artist’s studios. The exhibition explores the artists’ physical and spiritual journeys through the dynamic evolution of studio glass art across a variety of techniques and styles.

Curator's Gallery Talk featuring a panel discussion with the artists of Marking The Path Saturday, February 3, Noon – 2 p.m.
