Spring craft show features the top Island glass artists

Post Time:Mar 23,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:224

The Island Glass Artists will stage their Spring 2012 Art Show and Sale in the Dodd Narrows Room, Vancouver Island Conference Centre, Saturday, April 7. Admission is free, and hourly door prize draws will be featured.

 

This Second Annual Spring show will feature the latest work from 10 studios of the Island Glass Artists - outstanding Vancouver Island and Gulf Island artists who work in stained, kiln cast, fused, lampworked, sand-carved and furnace blown glass.

 

Their array of work will range from functional to decorative and architectural applications: window and door panels, lamps, personal jewelry, vessels, glass sculpture and much more.

 

"This show began last year with Glass Artists looking for new ways to connect with the public," explains Christopher Smith, a professional art glass creator in Nanaimo for 35 years. "We set the show up as an Arts Festival with the artists at their displays. More than 400 visitors enjoyed our Fall show, and urged us to do an encore in the Spring. We'll be happy to meet and discuss our work with every visitor," Smith comments.

 

The one-day-only Spring show is set for Saturday, April 7 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Dodd Narrows Room, Vancouver Island Conference Centre, 80 Commercial Street, downtown Nanaimo.
