Leslie Perlis

Dimensional Mosaics with Fused and Painted Glass Elements

Leslie will use photos, videos, and live descriptions to illustrate her complete process starting with the development of a design, through the fabrication and final cleanup of a full-size sculpture. In addition Leslie will introduce her new “Multimedia Vinyl” series that combines fused glass and vinyl record albums to great effect.

Tony Glander

The Accidental Fuser or Warm Glass Trials and Tribulations

 

Glass Creation by Tony Glander

Experimentation can be an exhilarating adventure, full of thrilling highs and disappointing lows. Join glass artist Tony Glander as he escorts you down a few radical glass pathways. He will illustrate how he puts “landing gear” feet on fused bowls, describe some very cool creations made using shattered tempered glass, and explain a curious technique using molds made from glass in a kiln. Tony’s mantra is: “If you aren’t trying something new, you aren’t learning!” He’ll reveal some his most successful experiments and confess a few of his epic failures. Much of Tony’s work centers on the practice of using every glass temperature in the kiln and he is prepared to share his secret firing schedules with you. Tony’s dynamic teaching style will keep you engaged and boost your creative confidence to be experimentally innovative with your own glasswork.

Making Our Voice Heard: Advocating for the Art Glass Industry in Washington D.C.

Today information travels fast, opinions are developed even faster, and the facts are sometimes lost in between. No industry knows this better than the Art Glass Industry. In the last year our industry has faced increasing scrutiny that in some instances has inhibited our ability to do business. It is time now to be pro-active as a community and industry. Join us for a discussion about the role elected officials can play in helping and hindering our business, and how our industry can position itself to prevent our elected representatives and governing agencies from doing us harm.

McMow Art Glass & Wardell Publications
Organizer of GLASS QUEST 2017

McMow Art Glass offers the best in stained glass windows and beveled art glass, as well as beautiful designs in carved, etched and faceted glass.

Wardell Publications Inc. was founded in 1983 by Randy Wardell. In 1977 Randy opened a full service stained glass studio offering everything from Suncatchers to Cathedral windows (well maybe church windows is a more apt description). The studio also offered glass craft instruction and sold the related tools, glass & materials. The name of the company was Sandpiper Studios and it was (and still is) located in Belleville, a small city in eastern Ontario, Canada with a population of 38,000, so the axiom “anything [in glass] for a buck” wasn’t too far off.

Randy’s stained glass students would often ask for the pattern to make of one the custom designed lampshades on display in the Sandpiper Studios’ showroom. Encouraged by these requests he conducted a little market research that revealed a need for reliable, full-size pattern books. So in 1983 he formed Wardell Publications and released his first lampshade pattern book. Since then he has personally written 12 additional books and Wardell Publications Inc has released more than 50 products since it began.

About “Glassstress”:

 

Part of a new curatorial initiative to examine areas traditionally considered ‘craft,’ but which present alternative mediums of increasing interest to contemporary artists, Glasstress features 25-30 glass installations created by contemporary artists from around the world in collaboration with the international organization Glasstress, Venice and the master glass artisans of Berengo Studio, Murano. The results challenge our notion of glass as a ‘beautiful’ material and encourage us to explore the bold, political, and sometimes less than pristine aspects of the medium. Works included in the “Glasstress” Boca Raton exhibition incorporate performance, video, interactive media, design, and even video games, and delve into substantial content, from race, identity, and colonialism to themes of science and nature and issues of biological diversity, global hunger, and climate change.

The results challenge our notion of glass as a ‘beautiful’ material and encourage us to explore the bold, political, and sometimes less than pristine aspects of the medium. Works included in the Glasstress Boca Raton exhibition incorporate performance, video, interactive media, design, and even video games, and delve into substantial content, from race, identity, and colonialism to themes of science and nature and issues of biological diversity, global hunger, and climate change

Art Synergy is a 501 (c) 3, not for profit arts organization founded in 2013. The fruit of the labors of Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis and Freddy Hennevelt grew out of the original Think Tank,. It has flourished through grassroots efforts beginning with a partnership with Art Palm Beach.  Currently, Rolando Chang Barrero, President and Ilene Gruber Adams, Vice President are managing the organization along with the support of many artists and art lovers in the community. Volunteers and board members are always welcome.

 

By March 2017, Art Synergy will have organized 6 juried exhibition that have provided Florida based artists to have their work seen, and collected by national and international collectors and art patrons. Also, Art Synergy assists nine Florida art districts organize, promote and market over 65 exhibitions in each year throughout the Palm Beach and Martin County durning Art Palm Beach week which was initiated January 2014.

 

 

The nine art districts are: Antique Row Art District,Boynton Beach Art District,Delray Art Art District,Lake ParkArt District,North Palm Beach Art District,Lake Worth Art District,Northwood Village Art District,West Palm Beach Art District,Palm Beach Art District.

 

 

In 2016 Art Synergy was classified as a 501 (c) 3 not for profit arts organization which will allow for contributions and donations to a fund currently being created to allow needy families join experiential cultural experiences. This was possible because of the generosity of David and Lee Ann Lester of Next Level Fairs who donate exhibition spaces (Booths) at 2 of the Next Level Fairs: Art Palm Beach and Art Boca Raton.

 

 

ART SYNERGY is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community. ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, and initiatives that help unify the many diverse art entities, and talented artists that Palm Beach County has to offer. With the help of local CRAs, Public Arts Departments, the DDA in WPB and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County (to name a few), ART SYNERGY has only one place to go… onward and upward.
