Tying into the creativity that is part of the Glass Art Society 2017 conference in Norfolk, artists of the Washington Glass School and the Virginia Glass Guild are creating a joint exhibit at the nearby Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center (PACC). Titled “EMBRACING NARRATIVE: Artwork of the Washington Glass School and Virginia Glass Guild”, the show will feature works by members of the two glass organizations. Together these organizations promote the awareness and advancement of glass through ideas, theory, sculptural design, technology and installation.
Gayle Paul, the Curator of the PACC came to the Washington Glass School this weekend to finalize selection of glass artworks. The jurors of the exhibit are Diane Wright, Curator of Glass, Chrysler Museum of Art and Sheila Giolitti, Mayer Fine Art Gallery.
Featured Washington Glass School artists include: Michael Janis, Tim Tate, and Erwin Timmers, Audrey Wilson, Diane Cabe, Sean Hennessey, Allegra Marquart, Syl Mathis, Elizabeth Mears, Debra Ruzinsky, Nancy Weisser, Erin Antognoli, Steve Durow, Jennifer Lindstrom, Sherry Selevan, and Jeff Zimmer.
