Don Sichler is an artist who uses a camera and a computer as tools. As he puts it, he doesn’t create art, rather he discovers it, “My camera records what I find and the computer is used to develop and expose it.” He records with his camera what most people look at but do not see.
Rich Roberts discovered kiln-formed glass late in life. His art & life is an ongoing experience of unplanned encounters.
Fused glass is very different from traditional stained glass. Pieces are fired in an electric kiln several times up to 1,500 degrees. Each heating-cooling cycle takes about 18 hours.
The colored glass and small pieces are completely melted (fused) into each other.
At the Opening Reception on Saturday, Agust 25, 2018 from 6-8pm and the Closing Party, September 22, 2018, from 6-8pm, the artists will talk about their artwork and welcome questions from visitors.
The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the Hob'art gallery for their support of this exhibition.
