Generations In Glass at Glenview Mansion, Rockville Maryland



The City of Rockville will host the National Capital Art Glass Guild (NCAGG) show, Generations in Glass, Sunday, March 28, through Tuesday, April 27, at Glenview Mansion Art Gallery at Rockville Civic Center Park, 603 Edmonston Drive.



“We’re very excited about this show. It will showcase the tremendous diversity, creativity and growth in glass art in the greater DC area and honor artists key in the development of this exciting glass community,” said Sherry Selevan and Pat Arnold, co-chairs of the show.

Generations in Glass includes almost 70 artists and over 130 individual works of art. The largest part of the exhibition is a juried show by the membership, featuring diverse forms of glass art, including kiln-worked, stained, flame-worked and blown glass. A selection of these will have information available on the creation and design of these pieces in a segment entitled: From Idea to Art.

A highlight of the show is the Inspirational Invitational which showcases the work of pioneers of the vibrant glass art community in the greater DC area. For this part of the show, members of the guild have nominated artists who have inspired their work.

The Glenview Mansion Art Gallery is open to the public Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m-4:30 p.m., and Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m.-9 p.m. The gallery is closed on official City holidays.
