Glass Art Guild of Utah, Winter Exhibit 2023

Brigham City Museum of Art & History

By Dana Worley

The Glass Art Guild of Utah is pleased to be invited to the Brigham City Museum of Art & History for an exhibit that runs through April 15. Along with historical exhibits, the museum strives to highlight the art and creativity of Utah’s many talented artists. The Glass Art Guild was invited as part of the museum’s on-going efforts to recognize those creating in craft as fine art.

The exhibit features glass art created by several of the Guild’s talented artists. It was juried by William Littig, a Salt Lake City-based artist working in stained glass and public art for over 50 years.

We are excited to announce the following artists who were recognized during a ceremony and reception at the museum on February 25th:

  • Barbara Busche, first place, Fused Landscape
  • Amber Scheid, second place, Perseverance
  • Dana Worley, third place, Flow Organic Vessel
  • Margy Campbell, Honorable Mention, Tapestry Fused Glass Wafers
  • Joseph Peretto, Honorable Mention, Autumn Forest

Congratulations to these artists for their well-deserved recognition!

Margy and Joe were each recognized with honorable mentions, for their pieces Tapestry and Autumn Forest, respectively. Notice the beautiful stand complementing Joe’s three-dimensional landscape, which Joe designed and created.

There are more beautiful art glass pieces on display at the Brigham City Museum of Art and History, including a sculptural piece by Jodi McRaney-Rusho (also shown below). We hope you’ll plan to visit in support of these amazing artists and the museum.

The museum is located at 24 North 300 West in Brigham City. Museum hours are Tuesday through Friday 10 AM to 5 PM, and Saturday 1 PM to 5 PM. Entry to the museum and the exhibit is free and open to the public.

Best of Show

Barb, who was awarded first place for her Fused Landscape explained that she has been creating in fused glass since 2007. Aspen trees often feature prominently in her work. Barb said that she has been drawing aspen trees since high school, and she enjoys bringing these trees to life in glass.

Second Place

Amber was awarded second place for Perseverance, which features an intricate mandala design of colorful dichroic glass on a black background. Amber, who originally began her glass journey in glass etching, said that her art is influenced by emotions.

Third Place

Third place was awarded to Dana, who talked about her vessel, Flow. Dana explained that as glass artists, our process is often one of control – control of time, control of temperature, of heat, stress, and bubbles. Dana said that Flow was intentionally created with an asymmetrical design, to let go of some of that control and allow the glass to inform the shape of the final piece.
