3 Blomdahl, Sonja Sonja Blomdahl: Incalmo/Glass
Montgomery, AL Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts 2007 First Edition Stiff Wraps in Paper Jacket Near-Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
68-page catalogue for an exhibition held in Montgomery May 12-July 1, 2007, and then traveled to Michigan, Arkansas, and Washington State, where it can be seen until January 2009. There is a fine essay by Susanne K. Frantz, a statement by the artist, a resume, and a checklist, but the wow is the color plates, which I hope do justice to Blomdahl's vibrant glass pieces. While the shapes vary very little, the color range is spectacular. In Fine stiff wraps as issued; the opaque paper jacket is torn at the cutout (easily repaired).
