Bowling Green, KY Gallery Hop

The gallery hop is over, but the art remains up through the holiday season. Check out

Ellis Walker Gallery, 1945 Scottsville Rd, to see my take on some famous paintings. I also have a fun painting at the Presbyterian Gallery on 10th Street.  It's a great time to purchase art from local artists.

World's Greatest Studio Tour

Past Events - 2017

27th Summer's End Art Show - Scottsville, KY

1ST PLACE - “Billy”

Awards were presented on August 26.  No glass category for me so I entered one of my oil paintings titled "Billy" and won 1st place in the painting category.  Head butts all around!

Horizon Contemporary Landscape - Danville, KY

From all around the country, 223 entries were submitted.  Only 30 were excepted, so I was thrilled to get two of my favorite pieces juried into the show - "Genesis" and "Heliocentric." 

 ”Genesis” sold during this show.

about

BIO

Originally from Wyoming, Lynette currently resides in Bowling Green, Kentucky.  She has worked in the art glass industry for 25 years and has created stained glass windows for homes, libraries, museums and churches.  During this time Lynette began fusing glass, creating functional and sculptural art glass pieces.  Her art has received numerous awards from local and regional juried exhibitions. Lynette signs her art "Nett" a childhood nickname. (Picture of Lynette curtesy of Burning Man 2016)

ARTIST STATEMENT

As a contemporary abstract glass artist, I create designs that evoke nature and intimate galactic objects, heat, and motion.  I layer thin silver, glass powders, and frit onto reactive glass or onto glass that is sulfur/selenium bearing.  An intricate fusing process is used to coalesce silver and the reactive glass in a high-firing kiln. This creates a variety of interesting reactions, such as streaks and halos that are subtle or dramatic, colorful or dark, and each will produce an intriguing and unique design. My focus toward graphic and galactical wanderlust initiated my current series “Halos.”   (Image, "Quasars II" 19")
