Event Time: 12:00pm-5:00pm

15 Anniversary Artist Experience! Join us for an exclusive presentation by Jack Storms of his incredible process. Special event starts at noon.

Jack Storms glass sculpting begins at the heart of the design, by creating a core of lead crystal which is cut, polished and laminated creating reflective mirrors. When wrapped in optical glass, the refraction of light as it passes through the glass art creates rainbows of hypnotic color. The 10-week process of repetitive cutting, grinding and polishing requires intense passion and rigid self discipline. Join us at the gallery, July 12th and July 13th for refreshments as Jack dedicates and presents his work.

Event Time: 12pm-5pm

15th Anniversary Artist Experience! Join us for a surprise event with Mackenzie Thorpe on Saturday at noon!

Mackenzie’s work is honest and immediate. He rarely plans a painting ahead of time, but rather explodes onto the paper or canvas with an urgency that allows him to realize the emotion he is experiencing at that exact moment. Mackenzie uses his hands and fingers as extensions of the pastel sticks. He works that pastel into the subtle blending of colors with his hands. The precision of his more graphic compositions is achieved with the same explosive energy. Join us at the gallery July 26th and 27th for refreshments as Mackenzie dedicates and presents his work.
