The workshop was lots of fun for the students – many who never worked with glass before.
Learning how to get detailed bas relief imagery got the students excited about the possibilities!
Working inside the special kilns at Duncan McClellan’s glass studio was a treat for the students.

Lindy Irhman @ Florida’s Duncan McClellan Gallery

With the weather bringing attention to all things Florida – happily on Florida’s gulf coast, the Tampa Bay area has received only some strong winds from Hurricane Matthew. 

The City of St Petersburg is home to Duncan McClellan Gallery, which features rotating exhibitions showcasing national and internationally recognized glass artists. Starting today, the gallery features the work of glass artist Lindy Irhman.

Lindy is a glass artist from West Michigan creates sculpture and wall panels made from layered digital images that are fused into slabs that exploit the 3-dimensional quality inherent with stacked glass and the depth enhances her narrative and metaphors, drawing the viewer into the eccentric and beguiling imagery within. Lindy’s contemporary surrealism is like opening a door and seeing a strange, new planet. One never know what to expect, it’s bizarre but familiar, just like dreams.

Lindy’s work shows how new techniques continue being integrated with traditional craft with the coming of the digital age. The art form of photo manipulation involves the creation of unique images and in some instances, signature expressions of art by photographic artists. Lindy is able to create an inspired transition between her photographic work and her sculptural glass.

Duncan McClellan Gallery’s Artistic Director, Mary Childs, said of Lindy’s artwork: “[We are] dedicated to mentoring emerging artists, and Lindy Irhman’s work deserves the introduction we are happy to give give her…The skill and vision represented in her pieces is fresh and innovative, and we are proud to represent such a promising talent.”

On Saturday, October 8, 2016, Duncan McClellan Gallery will also open “Art Outdoors” for their official opening of their new Sculpture Gardens.

Washington Glass Goes South (to Sunny St. Petersburg!)

Duncan McClellan Gallery, located in the heart of St. Petersburg’s arty Warehouse Art District in Florida, will be showcasing five artists from the Washington Glass School.

Sean Hennessey, Tim Tate, Erwin Timmers, Michael Janis, and Allegra Marquart will be the DC five showing in sunny FLA.

Renown glass artist Duncan McClellan was one of the featured artists in the first international US/UK exhibits “Glass3” held Georgetown in 2008. Duncan has opened a hotshop and gallery that features rotating exhibitions showcasing nationally and internationally recognized artists. 

The Gallery in itself is a work of art. Duncan has transformed a 7,800 square foot former fish and tomato packing plant into a beautiful, multi- functional space. Lush fruit bearing trees create a veritable Eden within the industrial area that surrounds it. The grounds have become a meeting place for artists, visiting dignitaries and the community. Duncan also created the DMG School Project – an outreach that provide educational opportunities to both artists and community.

Beer, wine and refreshments are available for a donation benefiting the DMG School Project.
