The Color Pink [SHOW]

The Color Pink Glasshouse by Betsy Mead
Glasshouse by Betsy Mead

January cold got you down? Come in out of the cold to Del Ray Artisans' The Color Pink exhibit. Just thinking about pink will warm you up and help chase away those winter blues! Artists have used the color pink in its many shades to evoke purity, hope, seduction, romanticism, and many other emotions. Curator Betsy Mead challenged Del Ray Artisans members to use any shade of pink—as little or as much as they like. Is the art sweet or sassy, sublime or shocking?

Opening Reception: Friday, January 2 from 7-9pm
Chat with the artists in the show and other art appreciators! During the reception there will also be a raffle to win a lighted pink glass gingerbread house. Raffle tickets are just $2 each or 3 for $5.

"Build a Glass Gingerbread House" Workshop: Saturday, January 17 from 10am-2pm
In conjunction with The Color Pink exhibit, curator Betsy Mead will lead a workshop for participants to build a lighted glass gingerbread house that features gingerbread amenities, but can last forever. Students choose from a variety of colors and make their own designs on the houses. All materials provided; glass pieces are pre-cut and fired. No prior experience required. Fee: $30 for DRA members and $35 for non-members. Register at:
