Come gather at Jeffrey Moose Gallery, 1333 5th Avenue, Seattle, First Thursday, May 3rd, 5:30 to 7:30 pm, to celebrate a special show of glass artworks by gallery artists Bob Mitchell and Cheri O'Brien. The show will run through June 30th.

Both artists hail from Snohomish County and both are recipients of the Snohomish County Artist of the Year award, Ms. O'Brien in 1998 and Mr. Mitchell in 2000. Mr. Mitchell is a senior Snohomish County glass artist, with a career dating back to the 70's in Chicago, including restoration work on church windows, hand blown glass objects and residential as well as corporate commissions. Ms. O'Brien, known as a painter and illustrator, has known Mr. Mitchell for years and now shares a common medium with him. For the past several months, Ms. O'Brien has immersed herself in learning the craft of painting on glass in several forms: enameled, fused and reverse-painted images.

Ms. O'Brien had recently taken classes in painting glass with noted glass artist Cappy Thompson at the Pratt Fine Art Center. Ms. Thompson, like Ms. O'Brien, is known for glowing figurative images and long ago mastered the art of translucent painting on glass surfaces. Recently, Ms. O'Brien secured three commissions: A group of paintings on glass for Highline Elementary in Des Moines and two posters for separate gardening and arts events in Everett, Washington.

Mr. Mitchell is also on a career roll. He was recently selected to operate the glass hot shop and teach at the upcoming Everett Arts Center building. The facility, slated to open in the spring of 2009, will be a five-story structure with the Arts Center occupying the first two floors and Art Space tenants living and working on the upper floors.
