 We are happy  to announce local glass artist, Jason Howard, will be showing his wonderful and ephemeral glass pieces for the first time here at Imagine.  We hope you will join us for the opening reception tonight, July 6th 6-9pm, as part of First Friday Art Night in Skaneateles.  As always we will have musical entertainment provided by  “The Usual Suspects,” as well as light refreshments.  “This series is about inner life forces,” says Howard, of Skaneateles, a progressive glass artist who specializes in borosilicate flameworking. “The simple bubble is the genesis of all blown forms, perhaps even the soul of glass. I prefer blown glass forms because they capture a unique part of the handmade artistic process—the human breath. ” “In these works, I’ve tried to ‘let go,’ allowing the bubbles to expand as large as they can without too much control over their shape as they inflate in one breath,” he says. “Piercing the bubbles with a flame leaves only their pure essence: These captured forms are reduced to their absolute basic structure or inner life force. They are not stitched or woven, but rather blown, manipulated, and finally revealed. Layers of fumed gold and silver amplify their ability to capture, hold and reflect light’s divine mystic qualities.” Howard’s work is in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and has been exhibited at Snyderman-Works Galleries in Philadelphia, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, Kittrell/Riffkind Art Glass in Dallas and the Glasshouse Gallery in Seattle. Also in July is the annual Curbstone Festival July 19th-21st.  This year we will be having a sale not only on the sidewalk, but in store as well.  We should have lots of wonderful specials, in addition to all the woderful new inventory we have just gotten in.  Please stop in and see us soon! Warm Regards, Sarah Panzarella Gallery Director Imagine
