Vicki Green's Glorious Glass

Our featured artist for May and June is Vicki Green, and the title of her show is "Life's Choices - Forks in the Road." The show will open May 2 and continue through June 30. An Artist's Reception to celebrate Vicki and her latest fused glass pieces will be held on Saturday, May 12; a special presentation by Vicki will take place on June 9. Both events are free, and take place from 5 to 8 pm.

10"x10" Fused Glass Wall Hanging by Vicki Green

Vicki's show will consist of a collection of 10"x10" fused glass wall hangings mounted on wooden frames. Much of the glass will be murine which she creates in her studio in Vancouver, WA. This technique involves layering different colors of glass and melting them in her kiln. The glass is then stretched, cooled, and cut into small cross sections and placed on end to create specific designs.

Vicki explained the title of this show by sharing, "As I think in abstract about the choices I've made in my life, I think of them as forks in the road. Each choice led me in a direction and I either stayed on the road or turned around and changed roads. In some instances the fork I took was not one I'd take again but they have all rendered invaluable experiences."

The beauty of Vicki's glass is unquestionable - her choice of color is always devine, and her 35 years of passion for working in this media is clearly apparent. 

We hope you will choose to make a "fork in the road" to Art On Broadway Gallery a priority in your life.
