Vetro is excited to showcase Cathy Shepherd glass artwork to all of our gallery visitors here in Grapevine Texas!!!

 

A bit more about this awesome glass artist:

The Works of Cathy Shepherd

“Inspiration for Cathy Shepherd’s handmade fused glass art is all around her, especially as she scuba dives in Tahiti and cross colorful, tropical destinations in the world. Bright, ocean-specific hues such as turquoise blues, pearly pinks, emerald greens, and fiery oranges bring Cathy’s artistic vision to the glass canvas as she layers multiple colors into one fabulous piece. Her work stands out by using many intense colors instead of just one.

Cathy also uses texture to create complex and energetic works of dimensional-fused glass art. From her early beginnings as a seamstress and fabric artist, Cathy has embraced the use of texture. She has also worked in the medium of oil paintings, which uses texture on the surface. With her liberal use of color, Cathy’s work is perfect for contemporary homes and businesses. Her work is distinctive through her nature-inspired use of luminous color.”

 

Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Gallery, 701 South Main Street, also located at the train depot, surrounds you with a cascade of color in vibrant glass sculptures and delightful light filled objects. The Vetro gallery houses many fine glass artists’ work, glass jewelry, and over fifty consignment artists. The performance of the glass blowers choreographing their skills in front of the glowing glass creations is always a source of entertainment.

Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Fine Art Gallery is spotlighting Jolanta Mozdyniewicz as a magnificent Stained Glass artist!

We searched through social media, client referrals, personal referrals, business referrals, books, magazines, art shows and several other random places around the U.S. to bring in the best glass consignment artwork! Two years ago we meet Jolanta during GrapeFest as a street vendor artist.  At the time Vetro was not selling Stained Glass art work.  When we met Jolanta we instantly new we wanted to have her as a part of our consignment team!  Vetro is excited to showcase Jolanta Mozdyniewicz glass artwork to all of our gallery visitors here in Grapevine, Texas!!!

 

 

 

A bit more about this awesome glass artist:

Jolanta began working with Stained Glass in September of 2013, after taking classes from Debbie Malone at the Funky Firefly in Chico, Texas.  Jolanta knows how important it is to be involved with the glass community and has taken that to a whole new level by becoming the Treasurer of TGAA (Texas Glass Artists Association).   Jolanta loves the challenges glass gives her, while she is creating new innovative designs and experimenting with elaborate color manipulation. Jolanta says, “Stained Glass is my new art passion.”  One of her newest art additions stemmed from the local love of train goers here in Grapevine, Texas! These miniature Stained Glass trains brought many smiles to children and adults visiting Vetro this past year!

 

Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Gallery, 701 South Main Street, also located at the train depot, surrounds you with a cascade of color in vibrant glass sculptures and delightful light filled objects. The Vetro gallery houses many fine glass artists’ work, glass jewelry, and over fifty consignment artists.

Vetro’s GrapeFest Visiting Artist!

Posted by | Leave a Comment

VETRO GLASSBLOWING STUDIO & FINE ART GALLERY

Vetro exposes our glass patrons and community-at-large to an innovative, influential, glass artist, Aaron Tate! Arron Tate will be holding demonstrations at Vetro Glassblowing Studio during GrapeFest from 12:00p.m. – 5:00p.m. Saturday, September 15, 2018!

 

Here is a bit more about this awesome glassblowing artist:

Throughout his early and then professional years, Tate produced volumes of fashionable decorative art pieces, interior design fixtures, and functional ware. These were created with a notable versatility that would transcend any specific decorating style, and would contribute to his success as a sculptor in solid worked, blown, and cast glass.

Aaron Tate forms his sculptures in recognizable images of humans and animals. His designs include natural subjects, made objects, and landscapes. He has developed a style in which the juxtaposition of images is often beautiful or classic and yet enigmatic. By the use of a repetitive light and dark technique superimposed on the surface color, he is able to affect an atmospheric quality to sculptures already suffused with symbolic purport and historic connections. The return of the overall structure and intricate detail is the viewer’s interpretation of the work and to link the art, the artist, and the viewer’s self.

Aaron said in part, “Some of my pieces are happy and uplifting and others make one pensive and thoughtful. That is what the artist strives for, a personal response to a sculpture, an object, that evokes something from one’s personal experiences in this space-time. It’s so…personal – the viewing.”

 

Here at Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Fine Art Gallery, we are excited to feature this remarkable guest glass artist during the 32nd Annual GrapeFest.  Please be aware that there will be an admission fee and Vetro is not able to wave that fee or allow guest to come into the gates for free!  Please visit http://www.grapevinetexasusa.com/grapefest/ for further details related to GrapeFest tickets.
