Got Glass!!! Art Exhibit Opening Reception
Sebastopol Center for the Arts presents Got Glass!!! The exhibit will be on display October 27 – December 3, 2017, with an Opening Reception: October 27, 6 – 7:30 p.m.
In Gallery 1: National, international, established and emerging artists applied to be part of this visual feast: A stunning collection of work that has been selected for creativity/design and excellence of craftmanship. The focus in the main gallery is on showing the diversity of the medium and the wide range of techniques: blown, cast, cold work, fused, pate de verre, slumped, painted, and more.
In Gallery II: A celebration of Flamework / Lampwork: objects that are formed from rods and tubes of glass that, when heated in a flame, become soft and can be manipulated into the desired shape. Formerly, the source of the flame was an oil and paraffin lamp used in conjunction with foot-powered bellows; today, gas-fueled torches are used.
In Gallery III: Ed Kirshner “ Organized Chaos” Plasma work with guest artists: Mitch LaPlante, Roger Carr and Mike Parrett.
