Hot Gatherings, Cool Conversations
A DMG Visiting Glass Artist Series
Sponsored by The DMG School Project
Featuring Sculptor & Multimedia artist, Joseph Wheaton
“Familiar yet strange, beautiful yet menacing, threatening yet delicate. Reaching and solid, my work traverses many contradictions. As in life, beautiful lines have sharp edges, precarious forms balance with great certainty yet are vulnerable to nature’s menacing ways. I am interested in using recognizable materials and relationships in configurations that will serve to re-evaluate how one perceives what might at first seem obvious. Dark forms stand in front of their ever-changing shadows. Lines motion and engage, but are like life, elusive and mysterious.”
Lecture is Free with $5 Admission fee, after 5pm.
Cash bar and light bites will be available.
Join us on Sunday, January 11 at 3pm to meet glass artist, Raven Skyriver.
Raven Skyriver’s depiction of marine life is inspired by his upbringing on Lopez Island, Washington. He started blowing glass at 16 and built his own workshop from the techniques he learned from his mentor Lark Dalton. He has an organic, but calculated approach to glass-blowing and has collaborated with such major figures as William Morris and Karen Willenbrink-Johnson.
