Happy New Year!
I’m trying to shed my election year funk and look ahead to creating some fun and interesting art this year – lots of glass inspiration opportunities too! It’s a BeCon year (Bullseye Glass holds a biennial conference in Portland Oregon), the Glass Art Society meets in Norfolk (close by), and I’m very excited about attending a class in April at Penland with glass art master Mark Peiser and new curator of contemporary art at Corning, Susie Silbert.
Next week at Pleiades Gallery we will be installing a new exhibit called “Together”. Each Pleiades artist invites another artist to exhibit with them. My guest artist is photographer John Cavallito. He has shot some phenomenal photographs of splashes, and I have used a few of his images to create fused glass powder prints. Here is one of my glass works to give you an idea of the work. “Together” will be on display from January 12 to March 5.
