There is a definite buzz on the Avenue.  The 2012 ArtWalk season is about to  start, April 6 at 5pm – 8pm.  Brochures are printed, banners are hung, new artwork has arrived.  And, the weather is perfect for strolling the Avenue to explore 17 galleries and more than a dozen open artist’s studios.

For those who have yet joined us during ArtWalk, put it on your calendar today.  Hunter-Wolff Gallery will have live demonstrations each month.  This month, you will witness Gary Vigen in action creating delicate paintings on stained glass surfaces.  These lovely gems are really landscapes created out of all glass; glass fused to glass for a new twist on wall art.  Stop in and ask questions!

A Glass Act

Glass shimmers and shines, sparkles and twinkles.  It has a life of its own.  When an artist combines a painted scene with these  attributes, there is magic.  And, the artist who makes magic like no other glass artisan is Gary Vigen. He begins with sheets of stained glass with swirls, streaks and wisps of color running through the glass, for the perfect combination for his landscape overlay.  After selecting the glass which becomes the background, foreground and focal point of his work, he “paints” a peaceful scene of trees, fences, and birds—just the right elements for his magical pieces.

Gary is an accomplished sketch artist and draws/paints with precision to layer on the colors, layer by layer.  Each layer is fired in his kiln to permanently fuse to the sheet of stained glass, cooled and ready for the next layer of color until the process is complete.  Here are the results of some of his incredible work.  We currently have 28 pieces of Gary’s work displayed from 3” x 4” pieces framed for a big picture look to large 20” x 10” paintings, double-matted and framed for a major-Wow wall hanging.

There isn’t a room that can’t display these magical pieces, in a grouping or  as a single focal piece—they are easy to display and require little care other than a dusting and secure location.   We hope you will consider something different in your art collection that will keep your guests asking questions about your findings.  We think Gary Vigen’s stained glass paintings are a class, glass-act!  What do you think?
