My wife and I recently went to the couple's event "Hot Date in the Hot Shop" and were thoroughly pleased and impressed. Our instructor David was super nice, knowledgeable, and went out of his way to ensure everyone had a good experience. We chose to make an ornament which unfortunately shattered while it was cooling, however, this only gave us a second opportunity to do the whole process over again (which is absolutely awesome). The other option was to create a 'paperweight'. What they don't tell you before coming is that these paperweights are more like glass sculptures. The other couples created some very interesting pieces for themselves. The one thing to keep in mind is that you have to return the next day to pick-up your finished product so plan accordingly. We highly recommend watching a demonstration of these artists and trying it out yourself!

It is refreshing to find an Art Center which resists exhibiting some mediocre local art. Each time I have attended an exhibit, it was always of a much higher quality than similar other centers. Small but good gift store. There is also a school, I have not attended any classes there, but the offerings seemed very appealing.

This art centers strives to exhibit regional artists in various media....glass, pottery, mixed medium, oils, water color etc. It is a teaching center with a talented faculty. Exhibits change about 6 times a year. We caught a glass exhibit featuring art least three local artists in our personal collection: stained glass' fused glass and blown glass.

Be sure to see the glass blowing demonstration in the Hot Spot which fascinated all of us. You can buy wonderful glass art works in the gift shop too.

If you visited the Chihuly Exhibition or not, be sure to walk up the street to the Morean Art Hot Shop for a real live glass blowing demonstration. The artist provide an amazing demo and create a piece from start to finish. We purchased a glass piece in the Hot Shop Store and love it!
