Fire Arts Vermont, BMAC present glass blowing demonstration

BRATTLEBORO — Members of the Vermont Glass Guild will participate in “Vermont Blown Away,” a free glass blowing demonstration presented in collaboration with the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) on Sunday, Nov. 21, at 2 p.m.

Register at to watch live via Zoom or in person at Fire Arts Vermont on Route 30. Space is limited for in-person attendance.

“Vermont Blown Away” will take the form of a friendly competition among teams of glass artists. Items from BMAC's Study Collection of Ancient Objects will be selected to inspire three-person teams to create new glass sculptures.

Teams will have 15 minutes to design a piece and one hour to complete it. Their glass pieces will be auctioned to benefit the Vermont Glass Guild's education fund.

This event is presented in connection with “Vermont Glass Guild: Inspired by the Past,” on view at BMAC through March 5, 2022. For the exhibit, Guild members created new works informed by objects from the Study Collection of Ancient Objects, which spans 4,000 years of history and dozens of cultures around the globe.

The exhibit features glass art by Josh Bernbaum, Marta Bernbaum, Robert Dane, Robert DuGrenier, Zak Grace, David Leppla, Angela Nephew, Alyssa Oxley, Lori Pietropaoli, Matt Seasholtz, Chris Sherwin, Josh Simpson, and Randi Solin.
