April 2017
"Eye Candy" by Sandra Kennelly

 



 

Sweet revenge and delight in the creative process continue to fuel octogenarian artist, Sandra Kennelly. One professor at the University of California, Berkeley, told her: “It’s a shame you’ll marry and have children and never do anything with Art”. She went on to receive an art degree there, raised a family, taught art and has shown her work at Art First since 2009.

Each piece in this new show of sparkling dichroic glass jewelry, three dimensional photographs and wall hangings will be on display for the first time.The shifting colors and appearance of dichroic glass result from layering glass with thin metals or oxides. Kennelly assembles tiny pieces of the glass, then uses a pottery kiln to fuse a wearable work of art. The unpredictability of the process sustains her enthusiasm, as does the realization that her works are worn throughout the US and overseas.
