Opening Reception: First Thursday, August 4th 6-8pm
Raven Skyriver returns to Stonington Gallery after a whirlwind year of blowing, teaching and exhibiting in places as diverse as Japan, Turkey and Norway. He continues to add to his arsenal of techniques and expertise, using some of the most complex and difficult procedures to create marine creatures that are astoundingly lifelike.
The exhibition this year will bring an incredible Mahi Mahi blown this past spring at Pilchuck Glass School, and many more works of dazzling coloration, gravity and audacity.
