McNay Art Museum - a 1929 Spanish Colonial Revival residence converted to a world class museum- exhibits a French Art Glass collection of the late 1800s to early 1900s.

Art Nouveau and Art Deco glass from Paris flea markets started as a hobby for collectors Jeanne and Irving Matthews, turned into a passion.  The artistic creativity and technical virtuosity of that period resulted in objects of such high quality that this level of achievement has seldom been surpassed.

Art Nouveau's organic forms like sea creatures, bats, mice, or insects are masterfully married to a vase or paper weights for dramatic effect.  Art Deco characterized by clean, geocentric shapes, repeated designs, and a sleek, machine made aesthetic will inspire your imagination. 

SAGAG members have an opportunity to tour the exhibit with a McNay docents on July 22, 7 pm. Admission is free and access to the rest of the museum is available until 8:45 pm.  View the McNay Glass Collection Online.
