Overview:

An exhibit of woven glass wall tapestries by Artists-In-Residence Demetra Theofanous and Dean Bensen. This exhibition represents the culmination of their 5-month residency, where they have had the opportunity to explore and develop a new, collaborative body of work. They use influences in nature to communicate environmental challenges and metaphors for the human experience. Their work connects the viewer with the story of the natural world, and instills an appreciation for its interconnectedness to man, and its inherent fragility. Showing concurrently in the Ron Collins Gallery will be the glass tiles created during the Community Glass Quilt Project. This all-ages community project was facilitated by Theofanous and Bensen. Museum visitors participated in a two-day workshop, creating their own glass tiles which were then fused in the kiln to complete the piece. This process is called fusing or kiln forming. Each tile will be mounted on the wall, to create this compelling "Community Quilt."
