IMA is proud to present Fritz Dreisbach as part of the Art as a Voice lecture series. Dreisbach's playful take on glass blowing and his longtime affiliation with the Glass Art Society bring a fun and unique perspective to the history of modern glass art in the Pacific Northwest. 

Long a significant presence on the Seattle glass scene, Dreisbach now lives on Whidbey Island, working in his new glass studio in Freeland. As an independent artist, he is developing a new series of wheel-carved and cameo-cut glasses, in addition to his singular show pieces: playful goblets, trick glasses, toy vehicles, and “Mongos.” Combining his two loves of glass and travel, Fritz continues to make art, consult for glass factories, teach workshops, and present lectures around the world. Coined the “Johnny Appleseed of Glass” by his peers, Fritz has presented hundreds of lectures and demonstrations in over 180 institutions the past 48 years in North America, Europe and Asia. His glass is represented in numerous global public and private collections, including Corning, Hsinchu, Kamenicky Senov, Smithsonian and Toledo.

This documentary examines the personal journey of model and actress Mariel Hemingway, the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway, as she strives for a greater understanding of her family history of suicide and mental illness. Through stunning archival footage of the three Hemingway sisters and intimate verite moments with Mariel herself, the film examines the remarkable — though often heartbreaking — Hemingway legacy. As Mariel comes to terms with the tragedies of her family’s past that have shaped the course of her life, deeply hidden secrets come to light and truths emerge. Through it all, Mariel finds a way to overcome a similar fate for herself and her daughters, brings awareness to an issue she’s deeply passionate about, and discovers an inner strength and peace.
