The Orlando Museum of Art (OMA) is currently exhibiting Contemporary Glass Sculpture: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Studio Glass. According to OMA's website the exhibit has been organized to commemorate the workshops presented by sculptor, Harvey K. Littleton, and scientist, Dominick Labino in 1962. The two pioneered methods for working with hot glass on a small scale which allowed artists to produce work in their studios instead of factories or large workshop facilities.
OMA is offering a fused glass jewelry workshop as part of the exhibit. On February 9, at 1:30 p.m. interested parties can find themselves creating a pendant with glass artist Duncan McClellan and instructor Irene Winn. The workshop is open to all regardless of skill. There will be a gallery talk with a focus on glass processes given by Mr. McClellan.
The cost for the event is $60 per person which includes all materials and tour of the Glass exhibition. $50 for OMA members. The program requires advance registration.
