Pix From GlassWeekend at WheatonArts

The crew just returned from a great (tho exhausting) show at the Creative Glass Center’s GlassWeekend at WheatonArts in New Jersey. WGS’ Tim Tate, Michael Janis and Allegra Marquart were amongst the glass artists featured by 20 galleries at the biennial event that has brought together artists, collectors, galleries, and museum curators for a three-day weekend of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on glassmaking, demonstrations and social events.

Tim Tate’s mixed media work “Cowboy Luvin’”. Said Tim of the inspiration behind this piece:
“As a child, my grandmother had a millefiori lamp that fascinated me. It was the one thing she left me, and I still have it. I count this as my initial root inspiration for becoming involved with glass. She also bought me my favorite costume, a cowboy suit. This is the piece that I made as a 21st century tribute to her and her influence.”
