Black & White Art Show 4.0

BlackAndWhite Studies

I am honored to have two warm glass works accepted for the Black & White Art Show 4.0 presented by The Hardy and Nance Studios. Both works are studies of black, white and clear glass elements fused together to show different effects of kiln-forming glass.

Please join me for what promises to be an exciting exhibition of local artists working in 2D and 3D media.

First Saturday Arts Market - April

Date:  April 6, 2019

Location: 540 W. 19th Street, Houston, Texas 77008

Hours: 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Deborah Ellington of D. Ellington Art Studio and Robbie MacIver and Ron Page of Heights Art Glass are pleased to be showing at the Febrary Frist Saturday Arts Market, located in Historic Houston Heights.

Collage The studios are collaborating to present works created in fused and stained glass mediums.

Both studios create original work using the elements and principles of design. Each handmade piece makes a great addition or gift for a wide variety of tastes and styles. For those hard-to-shop-for individuals on your shopping list, an original one-of-a-kind glass work creates a lasting memory.

Heights Art Glass creations have been recognized in juried showings. Using both Tiffany copper foil and leaded glass methods, Ron & Robbie’s stained glass work focuses on the flow of lines and colors in both organic and geometric designs. Their warm glass work explores how glass reacts to heat, experimenting with new combinations of glass and construction techniques to obtain truly unusual results in design and color.

Deborah from D. Ellington Art Studio is a painter who also works in warm glass using a variety of techniques. She has taught at Lone Star College Montgomery and Harmony Stained Glass.
Deborah’s inspiration for the choices she makes for texture, colors, and design comes from nature. She creates original fused glass works using a variety of techniques and types of glass. To achieve unique shapes and textures, Deborah also creates her own original slumping molds. The work consists of functional and decorative pieces.

First Saturday Arts Market is a monthly outdoor juried fine arts event featuring the works of dozens of visual artists. The market showcases paintings, sculpture, photography, jewelry and glass art items. The entire family is welcome to come enjoy the great outdoors, live music and delicious fare from some of the area’s best gourmet food trucks.

FSAM Feb 2019 smIt was good to see everyone who came out for this past weekend’s First Saturday Arts Market. The weather was typical of Houston, changing every hour, but it did not deter a large and enthusiastic crowd. We had a great response to both our stained glass and fused glass work and enjoyed talking with everyone that came by our booth. We were also excited to get a couple commission opportunities as well.

Many people chose to bring their dogs with them again this month. Being the dog people that we are, it is always fun to visit with the dogs and their owners.

We ran out of time to get a couple of new ideas into the kiln and will have some new pieces at our next show. We'll be back at the March 2nd Arts Market and look forward to seeing everyone again.

March CollageThis past weekend's 15th Anniversary of the First Saturday Arts Market had it all; cloud cover, brief periods of warm sunshine, a little rain, some cool breezes, great Vegan food and even a parade! Most of all it had a large, enthusiastic crowd and we are grateful for those who took the time to stop by our booth.

This month our woven glass pieces drew lots of attention with many people wanting to understand just how we can weave glass. We always enjoy talking about how we do what we do. Bright colors also carried the day, a sure sign that spring is on its way.

We had a great time at the December Arts Market, Mitch Cohen does a great job organizing the show. December was a big show with around 50 artists showing off their work (hopefully selling it too). We has lots of people (and a surprising number of dogs) through our booth and enojyed talking with everyone. (We petted and got nipped at by all the dogs too.) Many people were interested to learn more about the process of making our work, a topic on which we could talk for days! We also noticed that almost everyone commented on and picked up the same two pieces. We look forward to the February 2019 market where we hope to have some new eyecatchers.
