ROBERT ADAMSON has also pursued a love of hand-blown glass for 30 years, turning his vision of glass making into a highly successful studio and training ground for young glass artists in the Pacific Northwest. He founded the nationally known art glass company, Glass Eye Studio in 1978, and sold the company in 1989. He continued to direct Glass Eye Studio design for over 120 products annually until 1998. In 1997 he finished construction of his own glass facility on Whidbey Island,. Robert now produces a line of art glass for the American craft market, and explores sculptural directions in contemporary art glass.
JANIS SWALWELL has worked with handblown glass design for nearly 30 years, and has spent as many years marketing, promoting and selling glass art for her company and for other artists. In 1997 she and her husband finished construction of a glassblowing facility on Whidbey Island. At her studio, she is working on a line of contemporary art glass, and experimenting with pate de verre technique and casting glass.
The artists will be attending the opening night reception on Friday, September 2nd from 5 to 8 PM. Light refreshments will be served and visitors will enjoy the tropical jazz of Baby Bahia.
All the shops and galleries will be open late, the Whidbey Pie Cafe will be serving a special menu, and we’ll be enjoying the “Art and Wine Walk.”
