Local artists will display their artwork during the Pacific NW Glass Guild Open Studio Tour and Sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Marvelous Mosaic Fine Art, 64535 Columbia River Highway, Deer Island.
Owners Kory and Rachel Dollar offer a glimpse into their stained glass mosaic, fusion, and vitrigraph art studio with a one year anniversary celebration, which primarily focuses on artist connections and empowerment through art. The event includes seven guest artists, hot glass shows, free children’s projects, and art sales.
Kory said her passion for creating art comes from the environment in which she grew up.
“Art with community is the best gift my parents gave me,” she said. “When we grew up, we made everything we wanted. In my life I was surrounded by artistic people who guided my creative path. “
Kory said it is important that her grandchildren and future generations appreciate the art creations after she’s gone.
“I am confident that my degree in glass will be of value to others who want to further explore my ideas and develop my concepts for the future,” she said.
The art exhibition and studio tour will follow all state and city guidelines for COVID-19 mask regulations.
