Galleries that Carry My Work:
I have been cutting back on the number of galleries carrying my work, but that does not mean I am not creating new work all the time. Please keep checking on what I am doing and where you can find it. And, SUPRISE!, every once and awhile, I add a new location!
East Street Beads 922 North East Street, Frederick, MD, email@example.com, 301-624-2323 -- this is the only location that carries my loose beads. The only other place to get beads and cabs is at a retail show (list below)
Gifts Inn BoonsBoro 16 North Main Street, Boonsboro, MD, 301-432-0090
Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center - Gift Gallery 40 S. Carroll Street, Frederick, MD, 301-698-0656
Sunspots Studio in Staunton, VA - although Sunspots does not carry my work on a regular basis, it is a fantastic hot glass studio where the the Virginia Hot Glass Festival is held every year. I have done this show now for two years and will try to keep doing it. But these folks are there every day with a hot shop that does demos all the time. If you are in Western Virginia, this is a great place to spend some time!
Show Schedule for 2013
-- so far. Please keep checking as more shows will be added as I get positive responses from various juries. Some of the shows are ones I do every year but the applications aren't all processed yet - another reason to check back. And Beth and I are looking into some new things!
April 27-28, 2013
Sunspot's annual Virginia Hot Glass Festival at Sunspots Studio. Stauton, VA. Saturday 9-6, Sunday 10-5
May 16, 2013
Gifts Inn Boonsboro's Girls Night Out Thursday evening from 6-9pm. This is something new for me and I think, will be a lot of fun. Since GIB already carries a nice selection of my work, I am bringing lots of loose beads! Including beads that fit the Pandora and Troll (and other) bracelet systems. Bring your bracelets to find that special, one of a kind glass bead. And bring a favorite chain and let us create a necklace together. I will have accent beads both in glass and sterling silver as well as some cables and cords.
