To Aug 12 Confluence – Annette Blair, G.W.Bot, Paul House, Jeremy Lepisto, Peter Nilsson, Nell, NOT, Tom Rowney, Luna Ryan and Nick Stranks. Throughout history, artists have worked with like-minded individuals as collectives, collaborators and mentors. When artists working in different genres and unrelated forms collide and spark new ideas, the end result can be breathtaking. Confluence embraces the results of the collective exploration of glass by pairing experienced glass artists with those who are less familiar with the medium.
