Local Artist to Open Gilbert Glassworks Teaching Studio


South Walton local, Russ Gilbert, owner of the renowned Fusion Art Glass galleries is pleased to announce the opening of Gilbert Glassworks; a private teaching studio for adults that will explore a variety of glasswork techniques. Gilbert opened his first glass gallery in Seaside, FL over 20 years ago and has over 40 years of experience creating art glass. After many years of planning, it is with much excitement Gilbert Glassworks opens it doors, with the intent of providing fun and educational opportunities for the community. 

Techniques and methods used in fused glass, flameworking and glassblowing will all be a part of the curriculum.  From beginner workshops that will explore the basics of glass techniques to advanced studies featuring national and internationally known artists, Gilbert Glassworks will be the premiere hot glass facility on the Emerald Coast.  

The Grand Opening/Open House will take place on December 30th at which there will be various demonstrations as well as giveaways and door prizes. For online scheduling or further information, please visit Gilbertglassworks.com.

Plein Air Painting Workshop!

 

Plein air painting offers a fun way to quickly improve your skills in seeing and painting. Joan Vienot, winner of the 2016 Bagdad Milton Plein Air Paint-Out and the 2015 Lynn Haven Local Color Plein Air Festival Paint-Out, will present how to utilize shape-making to start a plein air painting in a way that will offer a high likelihood of success. Joan will show how to use recognizable shapes to make an interesting composition, will give tips and practice in thumbnail sketching using two and three values, and will demonstrate the initial layout of the composition using identifiable shapes. Joan will paint in oils, but the concepts also apply if using other media. This One-day workshop in Watersound Origins will immediately be followed by the two-day Flutterby festival and plein air paint-out at that same location. The recommended supply list for this workshop is at http://joanvienot.com/workshops/joan-vienot-day-workshop-en-plein-air. Call CAA to register, (850) 622-5970. $40 for members. November 10, 9am – 3pm. Watersound Cafe, 573 Pathways Dr Suite 101, Panama City Beach, Florida 32413
