Settling In Our New Home and NEW EVENTS!!

We have made ourselves at home in our new gallery space at 15 S. J Street!  We LOVE IT!  So much more room, great vibe, new artists, new art...we could go on and on.  If you haven't been down to see us, please stop by!  Our events calendar (located to the right of this post) has been updated through July, with so many more wonderful art events to come.  Remember to "Like" us on Facebook for up to the minute posts, photos and news! 
Our most recent event, "Rock, Paper, Scissors, PAINT!" was so fun.  Featuring the amazing works of Emilio Aponte-Sierra and Steve Brouse.  Both create beautiful works in paper, found objects and paint.  They even created instant "wearable art" on our guests!  Click the image below for a slide show from that night....SO FUN. 
This is just a taste of what to expect from the artists of Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery--so much more to come this summer, don't miss a thing!  Join us every first and third Friday....

Oh boy, do we have news.  So much is happening in March I don't know where to start!  First, and most exciting, is announcing that CGMSG is MOVING!  Don't worry--we're not going far and will be staying right in Lake Worth.  Our new location is still a bit of a secret, we'll be announcing our new address very, very soon and will be inviting you to join us for a "housewarming" party in the very near future.  We will be in our Lake Ave location untill the end of March, and plan to go out with a BANG!  March is jam-packed with events, shows, parties and more.  First up is our March 1st Friday event celebrating wood and glass.  Gallery artists Wayne Smith (glass spinning), David Cericola (wood carving), and Eric Codner (wood crafts) will be showing and demonstrating thier amazing works in glass and wood.  Please come support these wonderful artists! 

THEN, a Mug-A-Thon of epic proportions--two nights of ART, MUSIC, and BEER .  What's better than enjoying a free beer at South Shore Tavern & Patio Bar you ask?  Answer:  Enjoying said free beer in an ARTISAN HAND MADE CERAMIC MUG, that's what!!!  Come to the Gallery and reserve a hand made, glazed ceramic mug for $30.00, then on the dates of the event, MARCH 8TH AND 9TH, grab your mug and fill it with a free beer at the Tavern!  One free beer per mug.   The mugs are gorgeous, glazed and fired by some of the county's finest artists and craftsmen (and craftsWOMEN).  The mug is yours to keep, and also makes a WONDERFUL GIFT.  So, come raise a mug to help the Gallery move into our new space...all proceeds support CGMSG and our efforts to support local, independant arts and artists!
Next on the schedule is one of our favorite celebrations of silliness, our annual Peeps Show.  This year we have opened the show to all Palm Beach County artists and Peeps afficianados.  $25.00 entry fee and the chance to win $100.00 and the title of Peeps Supreme!  Contact the Gallery for more information, 561-588-8344.  Rules are simple, the diorama must be larger than a shoebox and no larger than one person can carry. You must use Peeps brand marshmallow creatures (bunnies, chicks, etc.).  NO OTHER BRANDS.  For a peep at past shows (see what I did there?), click here.  This is such a fun, cavity generating event, get your glue guns ready and join us!!!
And finally, we close March with a fantastic Woody Guthrie tribute concert featuring a wealth of local musical talent.  Again, a portion of the proceeds raised will support CGMSG, so get your tickets and come sing along!!!

WHEW!  I think that does it for March.  All of us at the Gallery thank you for your continued support of our Gallery and the many amazing local artists we include in our family.  We look forward to welcoming you to our new location, and many, many more exhibits and shows.  As always, our goal is to support local art and artists, and bring these amazing, talented folks to your attention.  We will do our best to continue to showcase excellent, local, original INDEPENDANT ART!!!  See you soon......

Our First Ever Raffle!!!!

First, Happy New Year!!!  We wish you the very best in 2013, and invite you to keep up with us online, 'cause we have a great year of ART in store for you!

Tonight launches our first monthly raffle.  As we mentioned in an earlier post, every month a CGMSG artist will be donating an original, handmade work of art to be raffled in support of CGMSG's ongoing community arts programs and general operations.  Raffle tickets cost $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00.  You can purchase right here on the blog--simply click the PayPal icon on the upper right and choose your option.  EASY AS PIE!  The winning ticket will be drawn on the first Friday of each month (in this case, Friday, February 1st) and the next raffle item will be announced here on the blog the first Saturday of each month (in this case, Saturday, February 2).  A great opportunity to win amazing art and support our Gallery!

First up, we have Tracy Rosof Petersen.  Tracy is one of our "anchor" artists, supporting us from the very beginning.  Her sculptures, pottery and mosaics are beautiful and well-known in the area.  She has generously donated a lovely lighted design, featuring her signature "Peace" sign.  Here are the details straight from Tracy:

This versatile ceramic nightlight lamp vase can be used in 3 or 4 different ways. Use it as a vase with or without water, or a candle container or as a corded nightlight lamp. Each one is created individually and glazed by hand. This low-fire stoneware is twice kiln fired to over 2000°F, the temperature of lava. Looking through the mottled sunset orange peace sign, you can see the light reflecting off the warm white interior. The outside body is a soft satiny mint green with light rust showing through the layers of glaze.

Each nightlight lamp comes with a standard UL approved 6’ nightlight cord with a toggle on/off switch and includes a 4 watt clear bulb. Each bulb has been tested before it is packed for shipment. The lamp weighs approximately 3 pounds and is 9" tall and 6.5” diameter at the widest point of the rim, side to side and 5.5 wide from front to back.

I have used a variety of light sources to most accurately represent the colors of the glazes, with the nightlight cord on and the nightlight cord off, however, colors may appear slightly different on each monitor and in your home lighting. Please email
me with any questions.
