exhibits - Shane Fero - Solo Exhibition  

The Marta Hewett Gallery presents the exhibition of glass objects by internationally recognized artist, and current President of the Glass Art Society, Shane Fero.

Shane Fero began creating works in glass using flameworking techniques while a teenager, learning his craft in carnival settings. Thirty years later, he is considered one of the pre-eminent artists at the torch. Today, Shane Fero's exuberant works can be found in museums around the world, including the Glasmuseum, Ebeltoft, Denmark, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Museum fur Glaskunst, Lauscha, Germany and the Niijima Contemporary Glass Museum, Niijima, Japan.

In this exhibition at the Marta Hewett Gallery, Shane Fero, an enthusiastic birder himself, continues to depict his vibrant and lively subjects with a particular distinction. As spring approaches it is easy to recognize Mr. Fero's birds as colorful celebrations of the much awaited season. Just as many birds' songs have overtones that give a richness of quality to each note, Shane Fero's individual works become more beautiful as additional objects are seen, in all their variations.

Flameworking is a particular technique in glass art that has come to the forefront in the past decade. As the artist works and shapes his object over a torch he can sculpt with a delicacy that is difficult in other situations.

In Shane Fero's case, he can literally blow glass at the torch and then, with very small rods of heated glass color and glass powders, "paint" on the object's surface.
