March 2017
Greetings,

A huge thank you to everyone that came to Vitro Moda 9! We had a great time and hope that you did as well. SterlingFX Photography and Retouching took some great pictures which can be seen HERE. Thank you to all of our sponsors for being part of the event.

Thank you to the artists for your participation. Your work was amazing! A huge thank you to all of our volunteers, we couldn't do it with out you!

Don't forget we have an exciting kiln forming workshop this month, during spring break, with visiting artist Fahan Sky McDonagh. She will be teaching Pate de Verre techniques. For information and registration click HERE.

We had a fun community art project with visiting 
Israeli artists Batya Gil & Koby Sibony integrating wire and glass to create a unique piece that attached to the pole in front of SiNaCa. Thanks to everyone that got involved!

 

Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to seeing you soon.
