The Poetry of Glass Open
Friday, May 26 at 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
A showcase of works by members of the National Capital Art Glass Guild (NCAGG), featuring works by more than 40 glass artists across all aspects of the medium, from “cold” glass (stained) to “warm” glass (fused) to “hot” glass (blown). Their art illustrates the range of this amazing material: translucent and opaque, colorful, joyful and mysterious, responsive to gravity and variations in heat in ways that are often unpredictable. Exhibitors have studied with nationally and internationally recognized masters and include gallery owners, scientists, and educators. Works on display range from purely decorative and fine art to functional and architectural pieces. Like poets, members find their inspiration in nature, science, history, music, fabric, rhythm, abstraction, emotion, geometry, organic matter, and more. They are constantly experimenting, exploring, and inventing new techniques.
