November News
“I am an intuitive artist. I work on the way forms relate to each other to cut a line in space that flows, turns and carries the eye around the piece. The forms reveal a negative space that is as vital and potent as the actual objects.My sculptural work is as much about the void as the mass.”
-Martin Blank
Well October was a blur from beginning to end. We hope that you had a chance to come by to see all that we had going on.
We started off with guest artist Kale Stewart at Open Studio Night. Kale created three different molds that he used to blow in to. Two of them were plaster/silica, and the third was wooden. Many thanks to Kale for coming to demo with us! Check out images from the evening
ArtsGoggle was an intense blur, but as always a lot of fun. Our glass pumpkin patch grew to over 400 individual pumpkins. The glass market had work from over 20 artists, and our “midway” introduced a glass shooting gallery in addition to our oversized glass kerplunk. Our hot shop demos we done by current UT Arlington glass students. Many thanks to Nolan, Jon, Canaan, Anna, Phillip, Jeremy, Zach, and Katerina for taking time to demo for us. Thanks to Nathan, Nick and Nolan for your flame working demos! Thank you to our volunteers and staff for all of you hard work and effort to make the event a success! Images from the day can be seen
The month was finished off with our 5th annual Pride of Southside Homebrew Invitational. We had some great beers from the home brewers as well as the pros. Congratulations to Ron George for your win in best in show! Thanks to HopFusion Ale Works, The Loop for providing the musical entertainment, and Elevated Content for your support.
