The Common Element: Glass

Over the last 10 years the Baltimore/Washington area has become a hotbed of hot glass, with numerous public and private glass studios across the region. Two of these studios, DC Glass Works and The Washington Glass School, are showing their stuff in an exhibition of glass and mixed-media sculpture at the ArtDC Gallery in the Lustine Center in Hyattesville. The show features work by more than 15 artists including Megan Van Wagoner of VWStudios. Swing down to see glass mixed with all types of other materials.

DC Glass Works and Sculpture Studios is a hot glass and metal sculpture studio that offers classes and workshops on glass blowing, casting, and welding. The Washington Glass School is a sculptural glass studio providing instruction in fusing, kiln casting, and cold working. Both facilities also have resident artists with studios on site.

The show will be open August 15–September 5. The Lustine Center is in the Hyattsville Arts District at 5710 Baltimore Avenue (Route 1). The opening reception is Saturday, August 15, 4–6 pm.
