PechaKucha Presentation

Glass is HOT!

PRESENTED ON AUG 20, 2015
IN ST JOSEPH @ VOL 2

"What began for me and others who participated in a 1972 Chihuly workshop, 40 years later is an amazing expression of the creative spirit captured in glass." 

In "Glass is HOT" from PechaKucha St. Joseph Vol. 2 Jerry Catania share's his love for making glass art. He dives into his interesting history of being a student of famed experimental glass sculptor Dale Chihuly and how that experience led him to pioneer and cultivate over a decade of healthy and successful creative workshops and programs with a community that cherishes its new found glass culture in St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, Michigan where he and his wife Kathy run the Water Street Glassworks. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Tuesday, September 29th, 2015.

Through a Glass Lightly

BY AMY ANDERSON
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 05, 2015

Less that 2 weeks before this event Amy Anderson learned that there would be glass art on display in the gallery. She put together this presentation that explores all of the ways we interact with glass - emotionally, spiritually, physically, and many more. I guess all that time spent in libraries (see her previous PK) has paid off.
