The second annual Western North Carolina Studio Glass Exhibition is scheduled from June 1 through July 6, 2013 in downtown Morganton NC. This exhibition will feature 12 preeminent studio glass artists from the mountains of western North Carolina. This exciting exhibition is a collaborative event taking place concurrently in four downtown Morganton venues: the Burke Arts Council, Kalā Gallery, John S. Payne Studio and MESH Gallery. Join us the artists reception on Saturday, June 1, hosted by each participating gallery.
The exhibition includes glass that is functional and
sculptural in design. This includes many unique vessels in varied shapes and hues, as well as sculptural forms in blown or cast glass. The four locations will serve as singular venues for the exhibition and each will offer participants a distinct experience in viewing the entire exhibition of work. Among the artists participating in this year's exhibition are John Almaguer, Ben Greene-Colennese, Kenny Pieper, Greg Fidler, Roger Parramore, Gary and Mary Lynn Beecham, Joe Nielander, Judson Guerard, and Thor and Jennifer Bueno. The galleries are in close proximity, allowing visitors to walk to each venue in Morganton's historic downtown district. Artists work on exhibition will be available for purchase.
