Two Lopez Island artists share their creations inspired by trees they have known and loved. Linda Vorobik shows her hand-painted silk panels of some of her favorite trees along with her botanical watercolors, line drawings, and scraperboard ink drawings of her other favorite ferns and flowers (including the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, and the tree Tea Tree oil is derived from, Melaleuca alternifolia). Terri Roush will have a selection of her kiln-formed glass whose colors and form compliment Linda’s work. At the reception we will welcome visitors with a selection of hot and cold teas, so that we as a group might enjoy “Tea and Trees”.
Terri Roush
Terri’s journey with glass began eight years ago when her dear friend introduced her to the world of kiln-formed glass. She studied at Pratt (Seattle), at Cascade Art Glass (Kirkland), and at Bullseye Art Glass (Portland). She is amazed how this beautiful material behaves in and out of the kiln, whether it is through reactions glasses have with one another, giving rise to “new colors”, or by the effects of the layout and fusing/casting process. She create functional glass pieces and builds sculptural pieces by making her own cane and casting objects. Most recently, Gerry Newcomb (Seattle and Lopez Island ceramicist and glass artist) has been instrumental in helping her cast objects that she has created in clay.

Meet the artists and enjoy a cup of tea at the free public reception: Thursday, October 3 from 5 to 7pm in the Miller Library.
Exhibit open during Miller Library open hours.…
