Let there be light....

Next week Spectrum Art & Jewelry will have a special upgrade. Alabama artist, Susan Knecht is coming up from Huntsville to install one of her exquisite, hand crafted glass chandeliers in the gallery. We are so excited, we may have to repaint the front room to match!

Each of her fantasy light fixtures in the "South Pacific" series take about four weeks to build. She creates all the elements herself in hot glass and then assembles the finished creation. No two are ever the same. Ours will be in vivid hues of lime and turquoise and measure approximately 31" H x 28" W and weigh approximately 25 pounds.

Susan and her assistant are personally delivering the piece next Thursday, May 7th and installing it in the front room of the gallery. She plans to stay over for our monthly Open House & Wine Tasting, so she can meet our many friends and clients and talk about her work. She will also be bringing a collection of her wonderful, whimsical glass vases and sculptures.

Don't miss this chance to meet the artist and learn about her unique vision, combining classical glass technique with contemporary flair. She is seeking commissions for her light sculptures and has a wide variety of wonderful colors available.

The open house is Friday, May 8th from 6-8pm. Wine and refreshments will be served. Call the gallery for more details at 256-2323.
