Their glass blowers have been busy, you will be able to feast your eyes on their wares including really unusual ornaments signed by visiting artist Phil Vinson. Not only did he blow them into metal molds that created fantastic patterns, he blew them in Durham and then signed and dated them prove it! Created Durhamanian-style!
There is also a collection of small, delightful bowls in fabulous patterns. Simply adorable.
Artist Renee Leverty is displaying a collection of her signature steel and brass sculpture that is both thought provoking and arresting at once.
Mike Lupa is sharing more of his marvelous ceramic work.
Robin Holmes has literally a HUGE surprise in bronze that may be the highlight of the show. Breathtaking.
Tripp Jarvis has a sculpture that is all wrapped up and waiting to be unveiled for your viewing pleasure.
And dear friend of the Clarion Content, Jackie MacLeod, has made a waterfall from small metal rectangles that have been treated.

On top of all that wonderful art to soak in, the folks at Liberty Arts have a newly redesigned T-shirt (courtesy of Mike and Leah Waller-Foushee) and pint beer glasses, all in the Clarion Content's favorite color: ORANGE!
