14 masked-up members are showing their glass in 4 well-ventilated places despite the weather. Come see some demos, talk about glass, buy some art, and maybe even make a free suncatcher or win a prize in the drawings.
This will be our 6th year having an Open Studio Tour and Sale*. We have several artists at each spot so you can see a lot of glass with just a few stops, either outdoors or with good ventilation. If you aren’t in the show, mark your calendar to come be inspired, and maybe even get some new treasures
Margaret Eagle still has some space for guest artists at her site if you want to show your work and are not in the general area. Here’s the link to the application. You need to be a PNW Glass Guild member and log on to fill it out: https://www.pnwglassguild.org/open-studios-registration/
*OK, technically it will be the 1st year for PNWGG, but as an extension of OGG, it will be our 6th!

Celebrating its 35th anniversary, the Sooke Fine Arts Show provides the opportunity for the finest artists from Vancouver Island and BC’s coastal islands to showcase and sell their work. The show is free and open to view on line from July 23 – August 2, 2021. We are very proud of our emerging artists and the body of work they produce. Included in the Show is a wonderful component of juried youth art from students Grade 9 -12.
Topic: Inclusions and Reactions: Looking for artists willing to show off their inventiveness with reactive glass and/or non-glass things melted into glass. Please contact Karen Seymour so we can sort of organize some of the speakers in this show-and-tell in advance. All welcome.

Displaying Your Work: Stands, Supports, Hangers etc.
This Sunday June 27th from 2 pm to around 3:30 pm Anyone can attend our General Meetings. Feel free to share the Zoom link with people you think might also be interested but please DON’T post it on public forums so we avoid attracting those who think breaking up a Zoom meeting is fun.
You’re invited to show your solutions too. The show and tell style meeting is aimed at getting glass artists to think about their piece as a whole, including how to display it, and to inspire the group to share ideas of how to do that. Each artist will speak for a minute or two, take any questions and then we’ll move on. It will be recorded for Members to view later.

Mark Brody will focus on Garden Mosaic, the Peaks and the Troughs. He will go through which materials are best, and why others will fail over time. He will also introduce his tile sources, where to get the proper materials, and why they work best for exterior works. Most importantly he will introduce 2 methods of mosaic to get any project started. Lastly, he will offer two great ways to get into mosaics: his At-home Mosaic Kits and his Summer Mosaic workshop schedule. Learn mosaics on your own or take a class with Mark Brody
