Four Recognized Albuquerque Area Glass Artists: Emily Brock, Doug Gillis , Sarah A Nelson, and Marcia Newren- Kinworked glass sculpture

Marcia Newren states, "Water", "It sustains us, and all life forms from microscopic to entirely too tangible. It can inspire deep tranquility and mind numbing terror. We take it utterly for granted until, like many natural gifts it makes us face it. We selected water as the theme for this glass sculpture show, not only because the material we work in is so conducive to its visual properties, but because of its diverse and vital nature."

Additional pieces will be shown by recently deceased glass artist Jerry Barnett.

Emily Brock combines many different techniques to create intricate narrative. The combination of fusing, slumping, casting, and lampworking creates a rich glass vocabulary.

Doug Gillis, states, “My approach is modular and contemporary based on the aesthetic styling of the European Bauhaus designs. The processes and materials themselves inspire me to explore."

Sarah A Nelson states, “I think of my work as inventories of compositional line and shapes inspired by, but not literal translations of, my drawings, painting and photographs."

Marcia Newren states, “I investigate glass process like an anthropologist out in the field. Abstruse experiments of limited utility with inconclusive outcomes are my specialty”
