Dana Arbib’s Vegetable-Themed Murano Glass at TIWA Gallery Has Us In the Mood for Fall

When deciding on the first exhibition for his new TIWA Gallery location in Tribeca, Alex Tieghi-Walker instinctively turned to artist Dana Arbib, whose second collection of Murano glass — this time in the form of both lighting and vessels — were a perfect fit to activate the space, a former manufacturing workshop for electrical parts. Titled Vetro Orto, which translates from Italian as “the glass vegetable garden,” Arbib's pieces are modeled on the forms of gourds, cabbages, and root vegetables.
