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!

AACG Auction @ SOFA

As the honored artists at the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass’s annual awards ceremony held at SOFA each year, we are pleased to have raised $12,000 to support the organization through our donation of a triple set of carved spears. These spears are for us symbols of liberation and freedom from oppression, and are our response to personal experiences during our travels in Zimbabwe, 1997.

The Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to further the development and appreciation of art made from glass.  Learn more about the organization here.

 

Thank you Olivia, Larry and Amy for this fantastic presentation!
