READING, PA – GoggleWorks Center for the Arts (GoggleWorks) presents the 14th annual GoggleWorks Studio Artist Exhibition now through January 6, 2019 in the Cohen Gallery. An opening reception, where guests can meet and mingle with the artists, will take place on Friday, November 2nd, from 5:30-7:30pm and include complimentary light refreshments and a cash bar by Belly Kitchen & Drinkery.
Composed of a mix of emerging and established artists from a wide array of backgrounds, the GoggleWorks Studio Artists practice and grow their craft-both individually and collectively within our walls. Their studios, located on the second and third floors, offer them private work space with proximity to collaborate, discuss, and grow with other artists. Our seven communal studios in wood, warm and hot glass, printmaking, metals, ceramics, and photography offers them additional opportunities to explore creating across disciplines and media.
Most importantly, GoggleWorks Studio Artists value their community and understand the importance of bringing the arts to others. Many of them volunteer to support our mission-such as teaching our classes,workshops, and after school program, offering open studios and demonstrations during events, and bringing the arts into local schools through our outreach programs. As a group, they make up a vital component of our community and we are all richer for having them. This annual exhibition introduces some new faces, welcomes back some of our alums, and collectively showcases their best works from the past year.
This year’s exhibition includes work from:
Mary Lou Creyts
Charles A. Farrell
Juan Carlos Ruiz Jr.
Sybil Roe Thompson
And work from the following alumni:
Peter Jon Snyder
Georgette L. Veeder
