Glassblowing Demo with George O'Grady
In October we're featuring glass blower George O'Grady (sometimes affectionately referred to in the gallery as "the other George"). He's inspired by Art Nouveau artist, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and the early 20th century art movement that evolved from Impressionism to Modern Abstract. This Art Nouveau style can be seen in his glasses, stemware, and vases, often utilizing striking metallic tones and bold abstract patterns. Mr. O'Grady will be at the gallery to talk about all things glass during ArtWalk on Friday, October 6th with music by Craig Yarbrough starting at 6:00pm - including acoustic guitar arrangements of the Grateful Dead!
The day after ArtWalk, Mr. O'Grady will also be doing a glassblowing demo showing the public how he creates his elegant stemware! And he won't be alone, glass artist Jordan Ford of the Melting Point Studio will also be joining him. The demonstration will take place on Saturday, October 7th from 1:00-3:00pm at the Fire on the Mountain Studio (324 W Birch Ave).
Joe Sorren and Emma Gardner Live Painting
Joe and Emma are returning to the gallery for another live painting session! These two surrealist painters will each be in one window painting an in-progress piece. When they did this event in May, it was a blast!
