Fine Art Society Continues Tradition of Art Education
The Fine Art Society continued its long tradition of art education by holding its opening General Meeting on October 15 at Design Glassworks in St. Petersburg. Members and guests met for a demonstration of kiln-formed contemporarily stylish fused glass art. Owner and artist of the Divine Glassworks, Sunny Stewart, walked/talked the group through the various stages of making a piece of her art, showing the development of her jewelry making, candle holder/vases, and her three dimensional wall/garden art. She answered questions on types of glass used, classes, and future showings in the community. Members and guests were able to purchase items before having lunch at a local restaurant.
Members, guests, and general public are invited to join future Fine Arts Society educational experiences. The upcoming studio visit on November 19 will be held in Tarpon Springs at a wood artist's studio.
For information about studio visits/membership call Gloria at 536-9176 or Gail at 595-3260.
Future fundraising event profits will be given to a different art studio/artist each year to foster the growth of the visual arts in Pinellas County. Join and enjoy an art experience.
