Weizenblatt Gallery presents: NC Glass Center to Exhibit Group Show from January 13 to February 7
NC Glass Center to Exhibit Group Show at Mars Hill University's Weizenblatt Gallery
Mars Hill University’s Weizenblatt Art Gallery is excited to present a group show January 13 - February 7, 2020, by the artists at the North Carolina Glass Center. The NCGC, located in Asheville, is the artistic home for more than 30 professional glass artists, many of whom are providing new work for this exhibition.
Glass has been a medium for artists for well over 2,000 years, beginning with the ancient Phonenicians and Egyptians. Later, it was used in stained glass windows in European cathedrals. Venice became a center for a particular type of glass renowned for its beauty. By the mid-20th century, new designs for furnaces enabled more independent artists to take it up as an art form. Art glass began in western North Carolina in the 1970s with just a few artists and has now grown into a major art form, with organizations like the NCGS; Penland School; and the Center for Craft, Creativity, and Design helping artists to thrive.
The NCGC is a non-profit, public access glass studio and gallery. It is dedicated to the advancement of education, exploration, and collaboration in all forms of glass. Its low-cost shared studios help emerging artists launch their careers. Its furnaces, torches, and kilns enable established glass artists to pursue new and ambitious challenges. Additionally, the NCGC showcases work from undiscovered to established glass artists in Western North Carolina. NCGC educational programs provide thousands of aspiring glass art students with high quality, affordable instruction. Their efforts include community outreach programs provide safe spaces for veterans and low income youth to learn the science and art of glass. You can learn more at ncglasscenter.org.
The NC Glass Center’s exhibition will run from January 13 through February 7. 2020, with a reception from 6-8 pm on Wednesday, January 22. Weizenblatt Gallery is open 10-4, Monday through Friday, and admission is always free.

Flowers and Clay, second annual Copus pottery home show and farm tour July 18 to 19, 2020
Spend the Day with Us — Or the Weekend
Come be part of our extended family as we open our business homes to the public for the first time ever. Flowers and Clay is an annual collaboration between Josh Copus Pottery and Carolina Flowers — also known as Josh and Emily Copus.
Walk inside a 27-foot pottery kiln and pick a dahlia from the garden. See how wild clay is made and tour the production farm where we grow tens of thousands of flowers each year. Dine with us on Saturday night — we’ll have pizza from our woodfire oven with herbs from the farm and garden.
Plan to stay awhile. We’ll have games and activities. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy our mountain cove, or make a day trip to one of the nearby hikes or swimming spots. Explore downtown Marshall while you’re in the neighborhood, and be sure to walk past the Old Marshall Jail — our other creative business endeavor.
There is no cost to attend this event. Flowers and pottery will be for sale on site.
Check back for additional details, schedules and collaboration announcements.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: Farm tours will take place at specific times only. The farm is short drive or walk from the pottery kiln complex, where the main event will be held. There are extensive gardens for you to enjoy at the kiln complex, but the bulk of our production happens at other sites.
