“Halcyon Gallery’s unique approach to showcase art outside of the traditional gallery space is extremely compelling as I want as many people as possible to engage, interact and enjoy my art. Public exhibitions are my favorite form of art because so many people get to see them.” Dale Chihuly
Dale Chihuly’s current exhibition ‘Beyond the Object’ has now been extended until 18 May due to overwhelming public demand. More than 25,000 people have visited the exhibition since it’s opening on 8 February.
