new artists - Cathy Brown, Ruth Ryberg, & Rhonda Snowaert
As long as she can remember, Cathy Brown has been drawn to the beauty of glass. The intrigue of shaping glass in a flame inspired Cathy to learn how to use a torch to form molten glass into miniature works of art. Working from the inside out and using many layers of glass, Cathy enjoys creating interesting little objects and patterns deep within the bead. She uses sterling silver and copper to make many of her own jewelry components. Simple, yet classic styling showcases her glass art beads, the centerpiece of her jewelry designs. Take a look…you’ll be amazed!
Ruth Ryberg has been painting for over 25 years, and earned a BA in Art from Hood College in MD. Her abstract paintings are absolutely beautiful and thought provoking. Asked about her work, Ruth replied “I feel that my artwork is a gift that I can create to bless others, just as God created the beauty around us to bless us. My oil paintings represent the creation story.” Come be inspired by her original works!
Rhonda Snowaert, creator of Snow Art Glass, is committed to finding the beauty in discarded glass and giving it new life. Used bottles, old windowpanes, broken auto glass, and left over shards from glass art projects are all used in the creation of new pieces. The glass is kiln-fired and repurposed into one of a kind art and functional objects. You will definitely want to see Rhonda’s beautifully unique work!
