Glass Weekend 2016 at Schantz Galleries

Posted on August 8, 2016


I was thrilled to be featured at Glass Weekend 2016 at Schantz Galleries in Stockbridge, MA.  Jim & Kim Schantz and their hardworking staff put together this fun event every summer and it is always a treat for both the artists and collectors.  This year was extra special with an added event, “The Nature of Glass” at Chesterwood, the historic home and studio of Daniel Chester French.  This nearby museum has beautiful grounds and views of the surrounding valley.  I created a special installation for the woodland setting of Orbs and Winkles.
