GLOWING GLASS evening event

Friday, May 12 from 8 - 10pm

Nationally renowned glass artist and sculptor Craig Mitchell Smith presents an exhibition experience combining stunning, larger-than-life floral forms with retrospective works and fresh studio pieces made in Charlevoix.

Artist Statement

"In 2006, I discovered my medium in glass.  Medium not only in the sense of the substance used to create my art, but as a voice through which the spirit speaks.  I love glass for its metaphors of the human condition.  At its best, it is colorful and transparent, brittle when cold and malleable when warm, stronger than it looks, enduring the ages if treated with care and respect.

Isadora Duncan, when asked what her dance meant said, 'If I could tell you what I mean, I wouldn't have to dance.'  I never set out to make something beautiful or meaningful.  My work is a response to beauty or meaning.  I work in glass to tell you what I mean.  I prefer to have my glass speak for itself."
