Aurora, an elongated form that seems to lift off the table, and Cocoon, a piece
that offers a rainbow of colors."
The work partners will be part of a group exhibit, "Virtuosity & Vision,"
which explores the relationship between the artists' skills, techniques and imagi-
Janet Kelman, who has her studio in Royal Oak, will open her doors to the
public with Glass in Bloom, a showing of her projects in hot colors and a display
of historic pieces of stained glass organized by Tom Newton.
"I think glass is endlessly fascinating, and I will demonstrate some of the
processes that lead to completed works," says Kelman, whose glass style also will
be shown at Habatat. "I recently started working with a thicker material. I cut it
into shapes and carve the surfaces."
Kelman, who designed stained glass windows for Temple Emanu-El in Oak
Park, will display some pieces that reflect her interest in snorkeling. She com-
pletes many functional glass forms, including dishes and perfume bottles.
Another affiliation for Kelman is Ann Arbor's Washington Street Gallery,
which is run by a group of artists organizing a student exhibit for Michigan
Glass Month. "Annette Baron and the
Students at the Baron Glassworks"
will include art by Jenna Werner, a
senior at the Community High
School in Ann Arbor.
"I've loved art all my life," says
Werner, who will be showing vessel
forms in many colors. "I paint, draw
and do metal work and have been
using glass over fOur years."
Werner, who became interested in
glass at a summer camp in
Massachusetts, plans on furthering her
studies at Washington.University in St.
Louis. She has made plates that her
family displays at their seders.
"I find the process of making glass
very meditative," says Werner, whose
projects were juried into a show at the
Ann Arbor Art Center. "My goal is to
make each piece visually appealing.
Besides enjoying what I do, I like to
watch other glass artists because the
work is so fluid." ❑
