The Bowen Center for the Arts is pleased to announce a month-long exhibit featuring Glass Art April 28 through May 25.  

The show will feature over 20 instructors and students from Dunwoody’s Spruill Center for the Arts. Works featured include stained glass, blown glass, fused glass and mosaics. From delicate to durable or wall hangings to useable, these works of art bend light and color in all forms.

The public is invited to the opening reception that will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. April 28. Bring friends and family and meet the artists, enjoy hors d’oeuvres and refreshments and stroll through the glass menagerie.

The Spruill Center for the Arts instructors include Kelly Thames, Janis Sheftel, Kelly Robertson and Maria Sarmiento. Also exhibiting are over 16 Spruill students.

All Bowen exhibits are free and open to the public.

Keeping with the glass art theme, at 7 p.m. May 11, the Bowen is featuring an evening concert by glass harpist Brien Engel.

Engel will visit from Pine Lake, Ga. and will create an intriguing and educational demonstration which combines glass and music with its origin and process. He also relates historical stories of the inventive process of musical instruments, including the physics and scientific background of sound. Prepare yourself for a unique and entertaining experience of musical ambiance.

Tickets for this performance are $10 and can be purchased online or at the Bowen.

The Bowen Center for the Arts is located at 334 Hwy. 9 North in Dawsonville, just north the historic square next to Lanier Tech.
