Hidden in the Hills: Robert DuGrenier Studio

May 6, Saturday, 2 p.m.

BMAC members are invited to attend a glass blowing demonstration by Robert DuGrenier at his studio in Townshend, Vermont.

Robert DuGrenier is known for both traditional and experimental work in glass. His enthusiasm for glass as a medium pervades his art and his work as a designer. Heavily influenced by nature, DuGrenier frequently combines glass with natural materials, such as metal, stone, or living things — for example, fruit tree sculpures interspersed with glass and metal, blown glass shell homes for hermit crabs to move in and out of, and glass beehives with 40,000 bees to help complete the sculpture. DuGrenier’s solar-powered hot-glass studio in Townshend, Vermont, is available for walk-in workshops, classes, and studio rental by glass blowing professionals.

ADMISSION: Free, but open to BMAC members only

Space is limited. Reservations required.
