This show features a great selection of artwork focused on plants. We kept it simple with this juried exhibition in hopes to break up some winter blues (and mainly grays) and instead usher in some colorful greens, reminiscent of Spring blossoms, Summer gardens, and Fall foilage. Our judge for this show is Jack Baker, owner of Akron Glass Works, The Glass Garden of Canton and Architectural Greenery, Inc.
Opening Reception: January 20th, 2023 // 4pm-8pm
Free Admission. Refreshments provided.
About our judge:
Jack Baker was inspired to try the art of glassblowing by an exhibition of Dale Chihuly’s work at the Akron Art Museum in 1998 and a trip to the artist's studio in Seattle. He honed his craft at Steinert Glass School in Kent, Ohio where he collaborated with the area’s best craftsmen. His love of glass soon expanded into a business with the opening of Akron Glass Works in 2006. Jack likes his work big, bright and colorful and is most inspired when combining his glass with tropical plant installations. He has a fantastic team of hot shop collaborators.
Jack has been in the interior plantscaping business for over 35 years. He graduated from Ohio State in horticulture and has serviced commercial and residential clients in the Akron, Canton, and Cleveland areas as well as provided foliage and florals for the WGC Bridgestone Invitational golf tournament at Firestone Country Club.
