2019 The Art of Craft at Centennial Arts Center

Here a few shots from the opening reception of “The Art of Craft” at Centennial Arts Center.  So good to spend time with fun and talented friends!  I’m grateful my art is hanging in their beautiful space in the company of cool, innovative and creative art.  Long live craft artists! (thru end of September 2019).  Can’t wait to bring home the piece I acquired by Sara King.  Thanks for the memories @ltrpottery (not mentioning names, Larry and Tracey Rogers 🙂) and to you Didi, @joshuawagner @tennesseecraftmidstate and everyone who worked so hard to create this event!  @centennialartscenter #nashvillekilnformedglassartist #industrialart #glassandmetalart #upcycledart #artevent #artexhibit

 

2019 Green Hills Library Show

It’s always an honor to have my work chosen to exhibit, especially so with other members of my Tennessee Craft Chapter. They have been super supportive of my work and I am very grateful to be part of a community with such talent! And what a pleasant surprise to have my “Radiate” sculpture on the sign. Thanks to my Middle Tennessee Chapter and all my dear friends for a fun reception!

She also offers business consulting for artists, website review and other services.

New February Showcase Features Kiln-Formed Glass Sculptures

Friends of the Brentwood Library have honored me with this write up on my first solo exhibit. What a wonderful way to start 2017!

The Brentwood Buzz

February might be the shortest month of the year, but the latest showcase gallery sure isn’t short on talent. Throughout the month, the showcase gallery at the library entrance will feature Seasons in Glass by Alice Shepherd. Her work consists of beautifully crafted kiln-formed glass pieces in a variety of colors and designs.

Shepherd started her kiln-formed glass practice in 2007 and then formed Artwork Cubed a full time studio built with her husband in 2011. The Nashville native has had her glass art recently shown in a juried exhibit at Centennial Arts Center and she is a regular at Picture This Hermitage Gallery.

Alice says her process is intuitive, describing her collection as inspired by the textures, light, and colors of nature and changing seasons. “These artworks represent my attempts to capture elusive feelings and precious memories in three dimensions.”
