The Art of Glass
Last Sunday I spent the afternoon at the Scottsdale Celebration of Fine Arts, an annual event that lasts from mid-January to the end of March. Every year a large number of artists come to Arizona to spend two months working in the big white tents and selling their works of art. It's a lot like going to an art museum to admire the work only in this case you get to talk to the artists and learn how they work. I go every year and I usually come home with some treasure to call my own.
Pictured above is Kevin Powers a glass artist who had some very unique pieces. If you would like to see some of his work, click here. In the photo above, he was working very carefully on a piece that will become a beautiful flower.
I'll show you some more of the activities the show in the future. If you live in the area, I highly recommend a visit. The tents are located at the Loop 101 and Hayden Road. Even if you don't buy anything, it is well worth the visit to see the beautiful objects so lovingly created.
