Light installation artist and open water swimmer Therese Lahaie keeps track of the tides and seabirds as she swims in the San Francisco Bay. Lahaie studied Fine Art at Emmanuel College, glass technology at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, and art history at Richmond College, London, England. Her training led her to custom lighting design and an expertise in LED architectural lighting technology that informs her fascination with the medium of light. Lahaie’s light sculptures and installations have been exhibited nationally and internationally. They are in public and private collections, including the SalesForce Tower Art, performances in San Francisco, CA, and works in the permanent collections of the Corning Contemporary Museum of Glass (NY), the Glassmuseet Ebeltoft (Denmark), Crocker Art Museum, (CA), and the Di Rosa Collection, (CA), the Cafesjian Art Trust, (MN), Worcester Art Museum, (MA), and a public art installation, Crossing Signal Mosaic, (CA). Her work has been reviewed in publications that include the New York Times, Sculpture Magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, Leonardo Magazine, and Architectural Record magazine. Lahaie lives and works in the Emeryville Artist Cooperative in Emeryville, CA, a small city supportive of its artist population.
