Making our Mark is a commemorative exhibition celebrating the 40th anniversary of Pratt Fine Arts Center. Nearly 300 teaching artists from throughout Pratt’s history will be featured, making it the largest group exhibition in BAM history. It’s going to be amazing!

Podcast Interviews with Shawn Waggoner, editor, Glass Art Magazine

We were invited on two occasions in the last couple of months to interview with Shawn, editor of Glass Art magazine since 1985, who began the podcast ‘Talking Out Your Glass’ in 2017.  Her accompanying article on us will be published in Glass Art’s January| February 2018 issue.

In the first podcast we are interviewed with National Liberty Museum  director Meegan Coll, who launched Transparency, the nation’s first glass exhibition of works from the LBGTQ+ community, along with Tim Tate, fellow participating artist.  You can access the podcast HERE.

Our second interview took place just a couple of weeks ago and is included in her ‘Pioneers in Glass’ archive.  We talk about our early experiences, travels and their influence in our work, what makes our collaboration successful, how we work independently within our collaboration and other things.  You can access this podcast HERE.

Thank you, Shawn, for these opportunities to tell our stories!

LODESTAR 2nd Opening @ Schack 10/15!

Sending our very best wishes as we collectively navigate new waters and unexpected storms literally and metaphorically.  These are curious and difficult times!  If you need an escape, let us tell you what we have been up to:

We have been busy!  Working through Spring and Summer to launch our solo installation/exhibition in Schack Art Center’s beautiful 1000 + sq. ft. exhibition space with 16 detailed sculptures including image, glass and steel fully engaged our senses and now, after four days of installation, our show is on, having opened last Thursday with the Harvest Moon.  

We have added a second opening on Sunday, October 15, 2 – 5, and will host a walk-thru/discussion beginning @ 3.  Contemplating our minimal use of color in these works and backing several with the color of midnight, we have stories & discoveries to share.  And we invite your discoveries as you experience this unique installation that includes revisits to our earliest collaborative efforts and our latest work with image in blown glass.

No RSVP necessary … hope to see you and please spread the word!
