November 8 through
December 20, 2015

Opening Reception:
Sunday, November 8, 2-4pm


Silvermine's exhibition of contemporary glass art will show both the wide range of what is being done today by glass artists, and what glass as a material can do. Glass has magical properties- it reflects, refracts, holds light, and lets light through. As an artist's material, it can be versatile, wildly colorful, smooth or rough, transparent or opaque. The artists represented in this exhibition include casters, kiln workers, glass blowers, stained-glass artists, and flameworkers.

Other artists featured in the exhibit include: Jane Bruce, Moshe Bursuker, Susan Cox, Susan Taylor Glasgow, Dorothy Hafner, Michael Janis, Marty Kremer, Christopher Lydon, Martie Negri, Nancy Nicholson, Alyssa Oxley, and Paul Stankard.

Weisser Gallery welcomes

KeKe Cribbs

An artist’s talk:
La Vie en Rose

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

Doors open at 6:30 PM, talk begins at 7:00 PM

Join us for an evening with renowned glass and multi-media artist KeKe Cribbs, as she discusses her life, her influences, and her thirty-five year career of creating. “The talk is basically a chronological walk through my life, starting with family pictures and moving through a professional career that began with a one person show in 1980.”

Beginning with her early sandblasted and engraved glass pieces which incorporated carved and painted wood, the art of KeKe Cribbs has been profoundly influenced by the places she has lived. Her love ofthe highly crafted works of antiquity shows in the way she handles her materials; from her blown glass figures with powder pickups, ceramic and glass mosaic figures, to her current body of work featuring reverse-fired enamels on glass that become sculptural mosaic boats. Her slide lecture is a travel log of a life well-lived.

The beauty and serenity of the desert lands of the Southwest- which have deep cultural roots for her- have informed her art, alongside the experiences of living in old European villages with winding cobble streets, heavy iron locks and hinges on old wooden doors. There is a sense of mystery and adventure sewn with magic in her work; new lands and old stories.

This event is free, but registration is required.
You may RSVP to Weisser Gallery at 301-571-8966 or info@weisserglass.com

Smithsonian Associates Tour Visits Weisser Glass!

tour We had the pleasure Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14 of welcoming two tour groups from the Smithsonian Associates to Weisser Glass Studio and Gallery.

A total of 80 attendees in the groups were visiting the studios of glass artists in the Washington, DC area. After visiting the Gallery and learning about the Weisser Glass history,  visitors were treated to a demonstration of vitrograph stringer pulling, as well as one of hot glass sculpting as Nancy Weisser demonstrated how she creates glass flowers for her installation work. Other demonstrations for the two groups included glass cutting and powdered portraits.

Attendees were also able to view many examples of finished artworks in Weisser Gallery, including Nancy Weisser's installation work Her Labor of Love, as well as a number of vessels held over from our Transform show. They were wonderful, inquisitive, enthusiastic groups, and we probably have more than one budding glass artist in the bunch!



Transform show at the Weisser Gallery receives rave reviews!    

The variety and quality of the work presented was breathtaking, and it was wonderful to see so many different interpretations of the singular vessel form.

A total of four vessels sold during the course of the show including the vessel Chesapeake Wild, generously donated by Joan Slettvet to raise money for So Others May Eat. We are pleased to announce that the silent auction held for Chesapeake Wild raised $400.00 for S.O.M.E.!  If you didn't have a chance to see this wonderful show while it was up, you can still see a select group of the vessels held over here at Weisser Gallery.

Students interested in learning how to create the deep formed vessel should contact Nancy or Sharon at the store to learn about classes currently being offered.

Gallery talk with woven glass
artists Markow & Norris


When Eric Markow and Thom Norris took their first fusing class at the Weisser Studio few could have predicted how they would soon take the art world by storm! Their stunning works of woven glass are in private collections and galleries around the world, and they have been featured in countless magazines, as well as on the CBS News show Sunday Morning.  For the past four years, they have been working on a series of four life-sized woven glass kimonos representing the seasons, the first of which debuted at their solo show at Weisser Gallery in 2009. Their third kimono will be unveiled at the November 2012 SOFA exhibit in Chicago. Find out what make these partners tick, what inspires them, and view images of their work at this presentation. www.wovenglass.com

This October marks the twentieth anniversary of Weisser Glass Studio, and we are commemorating the milestone with an exhibit titled 20/20 Vision. We will be celebrating twenty years of glass with the work of twenty glass artists who are near and dear.

Over the years, many artists have come through the studio, sharing their knowledge and learning from one another. Many have developed significant relationships with Weisser Studio, the staff, and owner/artist Nancy Weisser. Featuring many of the area’s top glass artists, this will be a celebration of the history of Weisser Glass Studio as a haven for glass artists, and an opportunity to see some of the remarkable artistic journeys that have been made by those close to us.

Opening reception, Friday November 16, 6-8 PM
