I’m delighted to be participating in this year’s show!
Come and see my newest works in my barn studio, which received a King Heritage Award in 2012 for its celebration of Adaptive Re-use.
(Our Spring flowers, certainly our tulips, should be in bloom.)
Hint: I’m focusing on lighting this year as a niche application for my glass art.
Gotham Glassworks is located at the rear of my home on Main Street in historic Schomberg.
There are over 30 artists for this year’s Tour – you can certainly plan a nice early Spring drive with the brochure and map in hand!
More information can be found on the ASK website here.
See you then!
Mariner Blue opalescent glass forms the lovely light blue shade; medium cathedral blue (transparent) weaves a whimsical striping effect through this elegant fused art-glass platter.
This follow-up work compliments the reviews Greg received on Something Blue. Greg never duplicates his work but he clearly listened to his customers here: call this colour and style a “limited release”.
This work has been donated to the silent auction of this years (2009) Arts Society King Soiree fundraiser on Sunday July 5th and the King Township Museum in King City. Please attend! Make a bid on Something Blue Too (and many other lovely works by other ASK artists). ASK’s website details the wonderful entertainment, food and other attractions at this annual event – this year is expected to out-do all others (Greg will vouch for that). Call Laura at 905.859.0056 ext. 5223; Visa, Mastercard, Debit, Cheque and Cash accepted. Tickets are $75 each; 10% Discount to ASK Members.
Something Blue Too is 16.5″ x 16.5″.
Greg’s River Flows Through It (2001) has been selected as the 2009 branding piece of King Blooms, King Township’s organizing committee of the national Communities in Bloom organization.
King Weekly published an interview with Greg on his inspiration for River Flows Through It, used as the King Blooms Banner 2009.
The image below is a sample banner for this year’s organization – it will hang on light standards in all major towns across King Township to promote awareness of this campaign from May through October.
On the request of the King Blooms Committee, Arts Society King (ASK) selects one piece of art each year from a King Township artist, preferably from a medium not featured previously. This will be the fourth year ASK has been, well, “asked” to perform this duty.
ASK’s Board was impressed by the work’s metaphors of the history of our rural area (by the gothic window shape); the natural colours utilized to convey a sense of our community’s passion for nature and preservation; and the flowing clear bands of glass signifying the interrelationships, power and beauty between them.
Greg is delighted to have this work featured so predominantly within King for the majority of 2009.
