Artist Mark Salsbury: A Retrospective

June 1 – 24

As an artist, my passion lies in working with glass. Like many others in the glass world, I was initially captivated by the hot shop and the mesmerizing allure it holds. This fascination led me to explore every aspect of this art form, ultimately becoming completely hooked. Nowadays, my primary focus is on kiln formed glass, as I believe it is the most effective method for expressing my interests and creating representational depictions of the world.

At present, I am delving into the impact of mass-produced commodities on personal identity. How does the constant bombardment of advertising affect the way I perceive myself? Our self-image is directly influenced by our living environment. This distortion can be attributed to the fact that most industries sell not only products, but also an image. It is this distortion of the mind and self that drives my artistic endeavors.

The artist reception is in conjunction with Third Friday on June 21 from 6-10 p.m. To view the exhibit, visit the gallery Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., June 1 – 24. Pieces are available to purchase and can be picked up after the exhibition closes.

UNrestrained: Michael Wyatt

June 1 – 24

Unrestrained is an exhibition by kiln artist, Michael Wyatt. Wyatt is a resident Third Degree Glass artist who has been working in kiln-formed glass for nearly 20 years. His artwork demonstrates the freedom to create outside the boundaries once set by his military and working careers. The gestural-like shapes, colors and lines in his compositions, although carefully and thoughtfully handled, seem to be applied without restraint. Wyatt looks to artists like Miró, Picasso, and Rothko whose work he enjoys emulating and adding to.

The artist reception is in conjunction with Third Friday on June 21 from 6-10 p.m. To view the exhibit, visit the gallery Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., June 1 – 24. Pieces are available to purchase and can be picked up after the exhibition closes.

Metal to Glass: An Artist Spectrum of Mixed Media

July 1 – 26

Every artist moves through multiple mediums and styles in their life. Thomas McFarland dreamed of being a blacksmith and forging iron, then found copper work immensely meditative and moved to that. He eventually fell in love with the challenge of glassblowing and is enjoying mixing all of his favorite mediums in new ways.  Come see how his metal work and glass come together in McFarland’s month-long exhibition.

The artist reception is in conjunction with Third Friday on July 19 from 6-10 p.m. To view the exhibit, visit the gallery Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., July 1 – 26. Pieces are available to purchase and can be picked up after the exhibition closes.
