SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery

September 2017

Our summer upgrades are complete, and the glass blowing studio is operational!

We start off our 'New Year' with our Artists in Heat membership drive. This year we welcome Grant Garmezy as our guest artist to kick things off. Please join us at BRIT on Friday the 8th from 6p-9p for a meet and greet with Grant and to learn more about what we do. The following day, Grant will demo for FWADA Fall Gallery Night from 12p-9p. Both events are free to attend, but we do ask for and RSVP for the meet and greet. That can be done HERE.
A big thank you to Nick Gomez and William McElmurry for demoing for August's Open Studio Night. They created some really great pieces.  They still have some finishing work left to go on them but rest assure, we will post images of the completed pieces as soon as we can. Images from the evening can be seen HERE.

North Texas Giving Day is on September 14th.  You will be able to schedule your donations starting today. View our profile HERE. Your support is greatly appreciated!
