Current and Upcoming Arts Council Events

Janice Hironaka's "Glass Shapes and Sounds" an Exhibition & Opening Reception

February 8, 2019 6:33 PM

When creating her glass-scapes, Janice draws on her appreciation of the forms, motion and contrasts of the natural world. She expresses her creativity by combining assorted colors and handmade streaks and highlights of opaque, transparent and iridized glass arranged in combinations using a genre she has coined "Kinetic Balance." Her goal is to provide the viewer with a realm of order and calm that stands in contrast to the chaos of the external world. Join us for light refreshments and to meet Janet and talk to her about her work. Janet's exhibition will run through Feb. 26, 2019.
