William Morris Exhibit at Maryhill Museum

June 13, 2010

While waiting for the finishing touches of my new Glass Medium to be finished up so I can start distributing, life goes on….I was hoping my next post would be ‘Available NOW’, but alas, it’s not…but it is almost….almost ready!

In the meantime… If you haven’t seen it yet, you MUST go see the ‘Native Species’ exhibit by William Morris at Maryhill Museum in Goldendale Washington.  It runs through September 6th, then I believe it’s traveling to Colorado next.

Last night Maryhill Museum put on yet another sumptuous evening with great food catered by Nora’s Table and entertainment by the Mobile Hot Shop from Tacoma’s Museum of Glass.  The afternoon began with a Gallery Walk led by Linda Tesner, curator of the George R. Stroemple Collection, then a wonderful lecture by William Warmus on Émile Gallé and William Morris whose work we were all there to see.

It was the opening reception for ‘Native Species’ and a few glass artists were lucky enough to be on the invitation list.   A highlight was visiting with William Warmus and having him sign our copies of ‘William Morris – Native Species‘, a gorgeous hardcover catalog of the collection.

Heralding our departure and the evening finale, a choir of peacocks on the museum grounds.  Thank you so much Maryhill for another fabulous evening!
