New Glass @ Union Shop Studio May 21 & 22, 2016

Bowls, Cat eyes, 2016. $250/each ($425/pair)

 

So, I get asked a lot “Where can I see your glass?” Truth is — right now — I work alone in my glass studio or am “crafting” public art pitches & other applications mostly. (More soon.)

But, you CAN see my new glass — and get some deals on unsold older work — on Friday, May 20 (from 6-8pm) and Saturday, May 21 (from 11am-3pm)…

Where? At Union Shop Studio at 5019 Wilkinson Blvd. in Charlotte, NC. (Easy to find, not far from Morehead St. and close to airport). Plenty of free parking. Studios are at top of parking lot, last door on left.

My artist husband (Chris Craft) and I share a small studio there. Along with other studio artists, we’ll have new work in gallery area, as well as tasty refreshments. We’ll be sharing how we make our art, our inspirations & what’s next?!

(If these times don’t work for you, reach out. I am happy to make other arrangements. carmella@carmellajarvi.com:)

 

Bowls, Pink space: Tiny & Small:), 2016. $65 & $95

More about ArtPop!
ArtPop — now in growing number of cities in USA — provides local artists with free opportunities to share their art on outdoor advertising spaces. Historically on billboards (thanks to Adams Outdoor Advertising and Arts & Science Council in Charlotte, NC area), spots  on s0me city buses and even this new curved digital display are additional ways for ArtPop artists to share their art.

Because of the nature of this venue opportunity, if you want to see in person, head on out. (Not sure how long it will be up. Hoping through end of May 2016:)

In addition to being an ArtPop 2014 Charlotte Alumni artist, I’ve also been serving on the ArtPop Board of Directors for past year. This is such an AMAZING opportunity for artists, I had to volunteer to help ArtPop grow into more cities… especially cities not fortunate enough to have their own Arts & Science Council!

CIVA, ArtsCharlotte, Church at Charlotte, & whole lot of love for Christ!

CIVA, ArtsCharlotte, Church at Charlotte, & whole lot of love for Christ!

What a great start to March 2016! 

I may complain about technology and being an artist “team of one” sometimes… But, God has been good! Anyone who knows me – even on Facebook – is aware that I belong to Christ.

unnamed

This is something that I’ve become more vocal about…. not to annoy, but to share the Good News! I have been a Christian for more than a decade and even been “public” about it since 2007.

rightcolumn-20160120-Charlotte-Symposium-180

I was blessed to be invited to be a panelist for CIVA | Christians in the Visual Arts, ArtsCharlotte, and Church at Charlotte’s first Charlotte, NC Symposium, “The Calling and Vocation of a Life in the Arts” earlier this month… March 4-5, 2016.

When the Lord shows up, prepare to be amazed. I have been to many business of art type conferences & events. This one was fantastic! There were barely any hiccups and I felt personally blessed and inspired by the speakers as well as others in audience.

Over 100 showed up from five states. It was a celebration of Jesus Christ’s place in our lives. It was significant for lots of reasons, including first time I’d spoken to such large crowd. Wasn’t even nervous about that… it was the first time I’d shared – in front of big forum – my walk with Christ as an artist.

That’s plenty for now. Want to know more?? Let me know.

Want to know more about ArtsCharlotte? Sign up for emails on this link. (By the way, ArtsCharlotte is for artists, not just Christian ones! Though our first symposium was.)

Adrift… trying to capture water with glass.

Adrift - kiln glass, table top piece

Adrift is a free standing, table top composite of 4 pieces.

Completed in early 2016, it’s first attempt at more literal water.

(Also a nod to my savior, Christ!)
