Collector Tour Hits Washington Glass School

>

Artist/Author Lenny Campello (R) joins the tour group.
Lenny Campello’s book about the Washington, DC arts scene – 100 Artists of Washington, DC has generated much press. An Art Forum tour group from Santa Cruz, CA, included the Washington Glass School as part of its DC arts tour.

Erwin Timmers talks about how he recycles glass into his sculptural forms.

 The tour continued to Flux Studios and to Red Dirt Studios and off to Georgetown later.

Tim Tate entertains with stories of how he makes his videos.
Until I started talking of how to do frit powder drawing, the audience was captivated.

 The tour continued to Flux Studios and to Red Dirt Studios and off to Georgetown later.
