Friday, June 23 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 P.M. in the Glass Studio
Studio Wide Open, a free after-hours event, allows visitors to experience a unique collaboration between the Creative Glass Center of America (CGCA) Spring Fellowship residents.
The evening will begin with a hot glass demonstration by CGCA Fellows. Enjoy light refreshments and connect with the artists as they work on the studio floor.
Following this brief demonstration, you’ll be invited “behind the scenes” to explore the hot shop, talk with our staff and visit the Fellows in their personal studios.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
