Preston Studios was founded by Jerry Preston and John Emery in November of 1976 in Melbourne, FL. This exhibition celebrates their fortieth anniversary in a retrospective display that includes past projects and new original lamps inspired by the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany (1898-1933).

Works by Preston Studios have adorned the homes of celebrity collectors like the late Allen Neuharth and George Plimpton as well as local art aficionados. Over 150 entrances on the Space Coast have been adorned by Preston Studios glass. Preston installations can also be found in Winter Park, Bayhill, Isleworth, and in Bella Collina in Central Florida and also in Boca Raton and Ft Myers in South Florida.
