Artist Talk at Long View Gallery


Washington Glass School 10th Anniversary Exhibit Artist Talk

This weekend, Long View Gallery held an artist talk, where the aficionados of glass sculpture joined the artists from the Washington Glass School’s 10 year exhibition in a lively discussion of the thoughts, processes and inspirations behind the works on exhibit.

Tim Tate describes Elizabeth Mears & Tex Forrest’s collaborative steel & glass sculpture “The Three

Sean Hennessey describes his cast concrete & glass process.

Debra Ruzinsky talks about what inspired her in the concept for Sugar Bomb #3. This work is one of the Washington Post art critic Michael O’Sullivan’s favorites in the show.

Tim Tate discusses how printmaker Kirk Waldroff translates his print techniques into glass.

Allegra Marquart describes her sand carving technique, and how she integrates tack-fused elements in her narrative panels.

Erwin Timmers describes the lost-wax techniques he uses with recycled glass.

Michael Janis describes how Jeff Zimmer builds depth to his glass imagery.

Artist Cheryl Derricotte enjoyed talking of how her cast glass piece is part of the Arts in Hand project.

Artist Jackie Greeves describes how she avoids coldworking on her fused glass artwork panels.

Michael Janis speaks for kayaker Syl Mathis’s integration of cast recycled glass and steel into his boat series.

Tim Tate talks about the use of new media in glass.

The most delightful part of the talk was when the environmental themed work of Alison Sigethy was discussed. Alison was not able to be part of at the talk, and one of the audience jumped in wanting to talk on her behalf, as Alison’s work is one of her favorites.

The audience provided new insights to Alison Sigethy’s work.

Coming up – there is a Washington Glass School 10 Year Anniversary celebration that will be held at the Long View Gallery, Sunday, June 19, from 2-5 pm.
