The mountains of North Carolina are home to some of the world’s most talented studio glass artists. To recognize the exceptional work of these distinguished artists, and others, an exhibition of work is scheduled in a collaborative effort taking place in three downtown Morganton, North Carolina venues: The Burke Arts Council, Hamilton Williams Gallery, and John Payne Studio.  The Sixth Annual Western North Carolina Studio Glass Exhibition will open on June 17 and will close on July 15.  An opening reception for the artists is scheduled for Saturday, June 17 at each participating gallery.


The exhibition includes glass that is functional and sculptural in design. This includes many unique vessels in varied shapes and hues, as well as sculptural forms in blown or cast glass. The three galleries will serve as serve as singular venues for the exhibition and each will offer participants a distinct experience in viewing the entire exhibition of work.
