This GUY! CEO Kickstarter Yancey Strickler! An energetic speaker and a person of honor. Thank you Greater Jackson Arts Council for bringing Yancey here to keynote. Yancey, thank you for staying to help us think, dream, coordinate ideas!

What a fun show! Ridgeland Fine Arts Festival brings amazing artist from all over the US to our neighborhood. With the local flavors of food, music and hospitality, the artists are treated to a wonderful taste of the deep South. Each year we are given the work of the artist selected to represent the festival. From this work, we create glass pieces combining colors, dichroic glass and sepia iron oxide imagery.
It was our honor this year to work with a piece from Ellie Ali (NY, NY). Learn more about Ellie and enjoy her work @ EllieAli.com.
The process starts with understanding the artist’s work and then, considering glass, imagery and the need to make several awards.
Most shows give ribbons. RFAF has chosen since the first year to give a custom glass award. The look on the artists’ faces! I am so honored to have a part. And then to win an award…well, you get it.
What an opportunity! Working with the MMA staff on celebrating the 100th Anniversary.
The last New Collectors Club meeting was held inside Elizabeth Robinson’s Spirit House Glass Studio. Robinson has years of glass making experience with work on display in the Mississippi Museum of Art and recently awarded “Top Ten Artful Gifts” in Artful Home Magazine. Read it…
