“Celestial Glass”

Opening Reception: Friday, June 8, 6-9 PM
Meet the Artist: Sunday, June 24, 1-4 PM

Unique works on glass by local artist and designer, Joanne Balaban Olen.
“Extremely drawn to color as far back as I can remember.
Crayons, spools of thread, paint. Experimenting with as
many materials as I could, immersing myself in the artistic
and design processes, I have honed these skills for
decades in my professional life as an Interior Designer.
When looking for creative and immersive, dynamic and
thoughtful ways to cover large multi story surfaces, I
developed the format for my multi-panel glass paintings.
This format allows me to express color in a pure yet
evocative way, translucent, and dimensional. The pieces in
this show are meant to enhance your living or working space with soothing liquid color. Each individual painting consists of
two panels of tempered glass, acrylic and metal paint,
framed in metal. Commissions welcome.
Let your mind wander and enjoy the ride.”
