A graduate civil engineer who always wanted to be an artist, when Linda Behar switched careers she attended a series of schools in photography, blacksmithing, metal casting and finally, glass fabrication at two of the nation’s leading schools for artists working with glass, Pilchuck Glass School and Penland School of Craft.
Behar’s mixed-media constructions contain references to her engineering background, her joy of unfettering her creativity on becoming an artist, her family and her travels. She has won four major awards in her native Venezuela and has participated in some three dozen exhibitions since 1991.
Behar’s new series, “Shadow of the Time,” consists of 32 boxes, each 5 1/2 inches square, incorporating her trademark cast-glass elements into exquisite compositions on the theme of time. The series is divided into eight sections of four works under such umbrella titles as “Time for Hope” and “Time for Music.” The inexpensive boxes are sold separately but cry out for grouping.
