Cherryville students show glass works

Students at Cherryville Elementary School show and sell their fused glass for the annual Show in the Snow at Cherryville Artisans Shop.

Instead of building snowmen or carving ice sculptures, students at Cherryville Elementary School have been fusing glass for the annual Show in the Snow.

The students will exhibit and sell their glass art at the snow, Saturday, Dec. 5 from 1 to 4 p.m. on the grounds of the Cherryville Artisans Shop, located at Highway 6 and Sugar Lake Road.

Funds from sales will go towards the school’s Parent Advisory Committee.

Cherryville artist Helen Kovacs, of Red Dog Glass Studio, has been conducting fused glass workshops with students at the school for the past 14 years.

“The students are always excited to work with glass; their imaginations are boundless,” she said. “This workshop gives the children an opportunity to look at a career in the arts  while exposing them to an opportunity that not many schools offer.”

All are welcome to the Show and Snow to enjoy complimentary soup, coffee and baked goods around a yuletide bonfire. There will also be some complimentary gifts courtesy of Kovacs’ Red Dog Glass Studio.

“We are celebrating all the volunteers that help make our special events, like the Roots and Beets Arts and Music Festival, possible. Without these hard-working artists, volunteers, musicians, donors and sponsors, these events would not be possible,” said Kovacs, who is also president of the Cherryville Artisans Association.

The Cherryville Artisans Shop will also offer 10 per cent off  purchases all day Saturday, Dec. 5.

“There is new glass art and beads, new pottery and photography and prints,” said Kovacs.
