Food & Friends ‘Friendship Wall’


The charity organization Food & Friends had commissioned the Washington Glass Studio to create its outdoor donor wall, located in the park adjacent to its Northeast Washington, DC facility. The wall is made of bas-relief cast glass, made in muted autumnal Bullseye glass colors, and set in a steel framework. The donor names are engraved on metal inset panels. The translucent panels allow for light and color to pass thru the memorial.

Food & Friends was founded to serve a distinct need in the community — feeding those who are sick. This need persists and continues to grow. For more than twenty years, Food & Friends has been the only organization in the Washington metropolitan area to provide life-sustaining nutrition to our neighbors in need.

The international art show SOFA Chicago was held at Navy Pier in Chicago, with the Washington Glass School represented by Tim Tate, Allegra Marquart and Michael Janis. The 4 day gala had 68 galleries from 10 countries and viewers in the tens of thousands.

Washington, DC’s Maurine Littleton Gallery had a great show, showcasing artworks of glass icons Harvey Littleton, Richard Marquis, Judith La Scola, Therman Statom, John Littleton, Kate Vogel and Colin Reid along with WGS artists Tate, Marquart and Janis.

The three DC artists had a great year, with a lot of interest from collectors, curators and other glass artists!
