Exploring the limit of kiln formed glass, Karen Bexfield creates original sculptures that engage the viewer. Her sculptures are delicate in appearance but strong in form. The interplay of color, shape and movement speaks to the raw yet purposeful unpredictability of nature and the glass process itself. Karen Bexfield's Exhibition will run April 17 to April 30th. Meet the artist 5-7PM Friday, April 17th.
