Currently SUNY Plattsburgh is host to an exhibition by artist Jean-Jacques Duval.
Jean-Jacques Duval was born in Strasbourg, France. After World War II, he began his studies at Ecole des Arts Decoratif, Strasbourg, France. In 1950, Duval accepted an offer to design for a major stained glass studio in United States. In 1957 he opened his own studio in New York City. Today he lives and maintains his designs in a remote area of the Adirondack Mts. Natural forms have always interested Duval and his present environs provide a catalyst for his inspiration.

Duval creates artwork in various mediums with a fondness for abstracts, including paintings, glass sculptures, and stained glass window designs. His stained glass projects are one of his specialties, and for me, they are the most beautiful.
Duval was one of the first architectural stained glass designers in the United States to use Dalle De Verre. His unique powerful style in abstraction is furthered with this heavy thick glass. (Duval Design Studio)
