Here’s my revised glass art lover’s recommended itinerary for 2015 Art at the Source open studios. This one is all glass – fused, blown, painted, and cast, with an emphasis on variety. Studios are open, free to the public, from 10am-5PM, June 6 & 7, and again on June 13 & 14, 2015. All the studios are numbered, and everyone has big yellow signs pointing to their place, so they aren’t difficult to find. Download a map here.
Start your tour at Studio # 72, 4815 Thomas Rd., Sebastopol, CA 95472, just off Green Valley Road, where Branka Harris will exhibit her unique fused glass painted nudes.
My husband Leland Dennick and I have fused glass, cast glass, painted glass, raked glass, glass with inclusions, glass jewelry, and more. We’ll have demos each day at
1PM – fusing techniques including cutting, raking and gold leaf inclusions, cold working techniques including cutting, carving and polishing.
Melissa McCann‘s studio, # 796, is just a mile away. Take Morelli to Occidental Camp Meeker Road to 4065 Acreage Lane. It seems like it’s in Occidental, but use Sebastopol, 95472 for GPS.
Go another mile to downtown Occidental, where Laurence, # 94, shows glass art in her shop at 74 Main St. Occidental, CA 95465.
Return to Sebastopol, just outside Graton, for Susanna Kaplan, #70, 8899 Green Valley Rd. Sebastopol, CA 95472. Check out Brian and Nancy Roberts, #61, and Valerie Adams at studio # 73, 6975 Hutchins Ave. Sebastopol, CA 95472.
At the south end of town and a bit into the countryside, don’t miss studio #34, Salatino – Gandolfo Glass, 2820 Bloomfield Rd. Sebastopol, CA 95472, for handblown, diamond wheel cut glass.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fantastic treasure hunt!
