September News

As a particularly unforgiving medium, an artist has endless creative opportunities to design for its unique properties–the only limitations are their imagination and skill in working with the material.

” – David Patchen

We hope that you had a great summer. This was our first summer in a while that didn’t have us upgrading or replacing a major piece of equipment. It was a very welcome change. With the end of summer the furnace in the glass blowing studio has been re-fired, and ready for action.
Thanks to Nick Gomez and Kevin Brown for demoing for our August Open Studio Night. They created some great collaborative pieces. Check out the images
September 20th is North Texas Giving Day. This annual event helps to raise needed funds to hundreds of non-profits like us thanks to the generosity of the local community. We would certainly appreciate your support, and this year you can do it early. Click

We have some big events coming up in October.
The first will be the ArtsGoggle on October 20th. If you aren’t familiar with ArtsGoggle it is an all day arts festival that takes place on Magnolia Ave. We will have glass blowing and flame working demonstrations, our annual glass sale, the glass pumpkin patch, and hopefully a few other additions to the fun.
The following weekend will be the Pride of Southside Homebrew Invitational. This will be the 4th year for POSHI where we recognize the best in local brewing, both from the pros and home brewers. Samples will be available, and you have the chance to help determine the Best in Show for POSHI 2018. Tickets are available
HERE, and if you know a home brewer there is still time for them to register for the event. Huge thanks to HopFusion Ale Works for their amazing support!
Please note that our Walkup Workshops will have a price increase to $50 per person starting the 4th Friday in September.
SiNaCa Studios is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that relies on the generous support of public and private donors to enable our programs.

Benefiting Beads of Courage
This month we will have artists creating beads that will go to Beads of Courage. Beads of Courage
provides innovative arts-in-medicine programs that improve the quality of life for children & teens coping with cancer and other serious illnesses, their families and the clinicians who care for them.
Join us the second Friday of each month from 6p-9p as we host an
open studio night at SiNaCa. This is your chance to find out more about the “magic” that goes in to creating glass art. As the artist creates their work we give you an interactive play by play, so you can understand better why they do what they do. Our on site gallery showcases our featured artist to give you a close up view of what they create. Its also the perfect time to find out how you can get involved in learning how to work with glass.
