One World Gifts and Gallery opened 2013. Their mission is to sell fair trade imports and locally produced items.The Gallery highlights local artists in rotating monthly exhibits.
The Glass Art Guild of Utah was founded about 15 years ago by a group of artists to educate,inform,and encourage the medium of warm glass. Artists join the guild to create friendships with like minded,learn from each other,host well-known glass artists from the wider world, and sell glass art in annual shows.
What comes to mind at the mention of glass art is either stained glass or blown glass. Warm glass still needs plenty of heat,1400 degrees, give or take a couple hundred degrees, and a kiln.The term’ warm’ then distinguishes it from the before mentioned categories. The past 30 years have witnessed a renaissance of this art form. It is possibly the most innovative and exciting art form today. One has only to Google a bit to be flooded with possibilities from wearable art to architecture.
