In celebration of its 40th anniversary, Spruill Center for the Arts is holding a gallery exhibition entitled 40x. Spruill students and instructors are encouraged to submit work which relates to 40 of something. Those of us enrolled in Margo's Lampworking class decided on a theme of "40 shades of blue". We each brought in various shades of blue glass rods, divided them up and made donut beads from each of the rods. Here are the beads as they came out of the kiln:
Each of the students in the class has the option of submitting their own take on 40, so check back and see what I come up with. The submissions will be on display at Spruill from October 9, 2015 to January 4, 2016. Hope you can stop by!
