    You have a rare opportunity to see the work of Steve Klein and tour his studio, virtually, at 4 p.m. (MST) on Friday, February 25.

    Klein’s use of exuberant colors and quintessential geometric forms is inspired by painters and sculptors from the past, the natural world, and life experiences. He is driven by the material and process to reflect his own ideals in kilnformed glass.

    “I like the idea of having control of the piece during the construction and composition, then losing control while the piece is in the kiln, then being able to regain control through further processes to bring together my thoughts, material and process into a resolved piece.” 

    Registration for the tour is here.

    "Summertime, and the living is. . .Pilchuck?" It could be for you.

    This is the 50th anniversary of the remarkable vortex that became the renowned and rollicking Pilchuck Glass School. Almost all the renowned and revered names in glass art have Pilchucked at one time or another.

    Pilchuck plans on resuming its full summer workshop program. You'll need to hurry—applications for workshops and staff positions are due February 1. Scholarships are available, and staff positions are paid (in many ways, including money).

    The list of workshop ops is worth a look, whether you can go this summer or not. Fall courses are listed as well.

    And let's all light a kiln to recognize Pilchuck's 50th.

    Blue Rain has posted a podcast featuring renowned Pacific Northwest glass artist Preston Singletary.

    Through an immersive, multisensory experience, Raven takes visitors on a journey of the transformation of darkness into light. In addition to Singletary's striking glass pieces, the exhibition features storytelling paired with original music, coastal Pacific Northwest soundscapes, and projected images.

    Bullseye has just added "Great Plates-Sandblasted" to its course list.

    The hybrid online and in-person class will be held January 29.

    The online portion includes videos, a class guide with instructions, ideas, and more. You then have an all-inclusive studio session at your nearby Bullseye Glass Resource Center. A glass blank to design, tools and supplies, sandblaster access, kiln time—it's all taken care of!

    Great for absolute beginners or experienced glass artists who want to bring sandblasting to their repertoire. This is a great opportunity for anyone ready to explore the exciting effects sandblasters make possible. 

    Bullseye offers several other classes, mostly online for the moment, including "A Painterly Portrait in Glass With Tim Carey" on January 29 and February 19.

    Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass continues at the Museum of Indigenous Arts & Crafts on Museum Hill in Santa Fe. The artists have melded the aesthetics and properties inherent in glass art with their cultural ways of knowing, whether re-interpreting traditional stories and designs in the medium of glass, or expressing contemporary issues affecting Indigenous Nations.

    A companion book, available at the museum gift shop, tells these stories and includes photos of most of the works on display.

    The exhibit, curated by Dr. Letitia Chambers and museum consultant Cathy Short, features leading indigenous artists from New Mexico and other centers of glass art creativity.

    If you haven't already visited the exhibit, move it high on your to-do list and go before June 12, when Clearly Indigenous concludes its one-year run. And if you have been, go again. You will see it differently each time.
