Gordon Huether Studio creates large-scale, site-specific art installations that are integrated into architecture & landscape for projects worldwide!
Gordon Huether was born in Rochester, NY in 1959, to German immigrant parents. Huether learned art composition and appreciation at an early age from his father. During his artistic explorations, Huether works to create a lasting impact on the world around him with large-scale works of art. He took a deliberate step towards this goal in 1987 when Huether founded his studio in Napa, California.
Projects have included art installations for private corporations, airports, transportation centers, parking garages, hotels, universities, hospitals, recreation centers, civic buildings, libraries, and museums. His work continues to be inspired by the effects that nature has on man-made materials. These materials, translated into works of art, serve as a reminder of the temporal character of man’s achievements. In recent years, Gordon has begun exploring different media to challenge both the concept and direction he has taken in the creation of his smaller-scale fine artworks.
His experience in the realm of large-scale artwork generated the confidence to fashion fine art pieces with very personal content. Huether started experimenting with salvaged materials, found objects and in contrast to these elements, items of polished and impeccable nature. While his core skills are in glass design, Huether also has extensive experience in working with many other media. These media include steel, re-purposing salvaged materials, resins and composite materials.
Huether’s work has been exhibited at museums and galleries, and collected across the United States, in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York. He has received more than 70 public art commissions and more than 175 private commissions.
