New Glass Sculpture.

I've been creating a series of smaller steel framed glass pieces to sell online and at art festivals. Here is one of the pieces:

Glass, Concrete, Steel
It weighs 8 lbs

This piece is a kiln form slumped glass panel, covered in concrete and framed in welded steel. The glass is recycled float glass.

To purchase this piece and to see others that i have listed in my online store, GO HERE
I also have larger panels that are available in my portfolio HERE. Please shoot me an email for information and pricing.

Call to Arts Vendors

Call to Arts Vendors –

An exciting new outdoor arts market brought to you by the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

We are looking for DC artists to help activate the Shaw neighborhood for two weekends in August (7th & 8th  and 14th & 15th).  We are looking for artists and crafters based in DC to sell their works and wares!

We're looking for 22 vendors for each day (it is not required to do all four days. We are happy to let people chose their level of participation). Space is FREE.

In addition to the craft fair, there will be an affordable art fair called Paper Pushers where we are looking for artists to sell original works on paper (size restrictions do apply- no bigger than 20" in any one dimension and nothing priced above $200) where people can buy the artwork right there and go. Artists will recieve full sale price of artwork less any processing fees that may occur.

We are also looking for people who would be interested in leading workshops with kids- live painting, decorating your own skate deck, bike repair, juggling, dj-ing…this would also be a paid position.

Other ideas are forming and our ears are open! If you have something you're itching to try out, don't hold back- let me know! If you have an idea or would like to apply, please contact Beth Baldwin at to participate
