Includes a Live Glassblowing Demonstration by Jason Bourgholtzer
This exhibition features work by three gallery artists; glass artist Jason Bourgholtzer, oil painter Donald Murphy, and jewelry designer Sharyn Wolf. “Depression Era Glass" is the glass movement that inspires Bourgholtzer’s new work. Individually produced by hand, each piece he creates has its own unique quality and personality. Murphy works with exaggerated colors and textures to create paintings of reflective surfaces with bold shadows and light. His unique cityscape paintings of local Sarasota and Tampa areas highlight and memorialize some cherished local venues with humor and delight. Wolf brings her childhood love of rock and bone when crafting her jewelry into a wearable art form. Her jewelry has been featured in Vogue, Self Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, and is a mainstay of Barney’s in New York. Come enjoy the wide range of talent at the Katharine Butler Gallery and experience a live glass blowing demonstration by Jason Bourgholtzer during the Art Walk!
