Syl Mathis on the Telly

Syl’s episode will be airing on MPT-HD on Thursday, April 16, 2015 at 8:30pm, repeats Sunday, April 19th at 12:30pm

Maryland Public Television is in its third season of Artworks, MPT’s weekly arts series, and this week will be featuring WGS’ Syl Mathis. The series is hosted by Rhea Feikin, a cultural icon in her own right. The show features intriguing profiles of established and emerging artists from across the country working in all creative categories: musicians, performers, visual artists, writers, designers, artisans – and experimental others who defy definition. Each program gives viewers insider access to outstanding artists they would never see otherwise.

MPT has been sourcing the Washington Glass School and the Gateway Arts District for features on the incredible artwork coming from this corner of the greater DC area. Syl’s work is well deserving its time on the TV. We are thinking of it as a preview to a future-cast of “Antiques Roadshow”!
