FOURTH FRIDAY ART STROLL
JUNE 22, 2018
MARE SCHELZ & EDIE SHELTON
Join us at Clearwater Gallery on June 22, 2018 from 4:00-6:00pm for a beautiful display of color by Mare Schelz and Edie Shelton. Mare will be presenting a variety of new mosaic glass windows and Edie will be featuring her fused glass home and garden decor. Please stop by to meet our artists and check out their wonderful creations. Wine and light appetizers provided.
Edie finds that many of her designs and her motivation come from the winter scenery in Sisters Country and the amazing natural color of the flowers in the early summer. Edie's Christmas ornaments and sun catchers shaped as mountains are her favorite smaller pieces. She has recently incorporated sunflowers and wild flowers into many of her larger pieces. Her passion for fused glass can be seen in all her works such as platters, plates, hanging wall art, and plant sticks.
Mare received her B.F.A. from Southern Oregon University, and went on to pursue two intensive years at Penland School of Arts and Crafts. She enjoys working in a variety of media, using an array of tools and techniques. She tries to use recycled items as much as possible in her creations.
Mare currently teaches classes in her studio and is a contract teacher at several schools in Bend. She loves working with children, opening their world to multiple tools, techniques and media.
“ I love to play with the colors of glass and am inspired everyday by this beautiful planet we live on!...(Glass) mosaics have become a great medium to gather up all that inspires and contain it just a bit.”
