Gioia Boerrigter is the featured artist in September at the Artworks Gallery. As an award winning artist, Gioia has received numerous awards. At the Glass Craft and Bead Expo Gallery of Excellence in Las Vegas, Gioia has been the recipient of the First Place Stained Glass Professional and Peoples Choice awards, for three consecutive years; 2009, 2010 and 2011. Her work is featured in “Best of America Glass Artists Volume ll”, Kennedy Publishing 2010.
Using lead, copper foil, and plating techniques and working outside the traditional notion of stained glass as a two-dimensional medium, Gioia pushs the boundaries with her three-dimensional objects. Each piece is a unique, one-of-a-kind creation.
The other artists of Artworks Gallery co-op are also displaying their works including: paintings in oil, watercolor, colored pencil and acrylic, handcrafted jewelry, color and black & white photography, fiber arts, metal sculpture, pottery, raku and vessel gourd art.
Gioia will be on hand for the First Friday reception, this Friday, September 2 from 5 PM to 8 PM.
Artworks Gallery located in Greenbank Farm on Whidbey Island is open daily 10 AM to 5 PM. For more information, visit the website or call 360-222-3010.
