Mica - the members owned cooperative fine craft gallery in downtown Bakersville - presents a monthly special “Featured Artist Spotlight” exhibiting the work of its member artists.
During the month of September, the Featured Artist Exhibit, “Weaves and Tapestries,” will feature new work by Bakersville‘s Fyreglas Studio.
Owned and operated for more than 20 years by artists JJ Brown and Simona Rosasco, Fyreglas Studio is noted for its enhancement of a process of making kiln-formed glass art by first making colorful pattern bars that are cut with a wet-diamond saw, arranged, and repeatedly fired to achieve unique designs. “This September, we will introduce new woven designs, continuing an evolution of colors and patterns, Brown notes, “and we will present a new process and series of colorful and dramatic geometric designs entitled: Tapestries.”
Mica showcases the craft work of its 15 artist-members including sculpture, glass, jewelry, fiber, wearables, painting, printing, and functional pottery. This extraordinary collection, enhanced by a yearlong rotation of featured artists and the welcoming and beautiful setting, make Mica a must-see destination for those who appreciate the handmade.
