Fused Glass by

David & Dale Barnes

David and Dale Barnes will be featuring their Fused Glass Creations

We have been inspired by many artistic experiences over many decades, but have enjoyed art glass the most.  It is a visual and visceral media that transcends through light, color, texture, movement, structure, and depth, all at the same time, which is wondrous and captivating.  We try to accomplish this in our art work, bringing the brilliance, color and dimension of art glass together with the art of design to form an interesting and exciting visual experience.  We enjoy using a variety of different techniques in combination to achieve unique lighting effects throughout each work.  Also, much of our work reveals a contrast between organic movement and structure, light and dark, translucence and opacity, texture and smoothness.

Oil and Acrylic Paintings by

Steve Myles
Steve Miles will be featuring his Oil and Acrylic Paintings
Steve started painting and drawing on a full time basis about 10 years ago, after retiring from a career in industry.  He is primarily a self-taught artist.  His work is representational and tries to capture the subtleties of lighting, shadow and perspective to create an overall feeling for the scene and has been featured in local magazines and in many juried local art shows.  In addition to painting and drawing, Steve enjoys teaching others and is currently teaching private and group drawing lessons as well as public courses in drawing and painting at the Spring Hill Rec Center in McLean.
