Kilnformed Glass by Kari Minnick
A Hillyer Art Space Exhibition

Opening Reception: Friday, November 2nd, 2007, 6pm to 8pm
Which Came First? Drawing Conclusions, an exhibition by Kari Minnick, features glass "collages" that combine bold composition, sensitive drawings, and fluid edges. Using flame-worked linear elements and images drawn directly into glass powders, Minnick creates signature pieces reminiscent of gestural drawings. Minnick's expressive use of line and manipulation of light break new artistic ground in the painterly expressions that emerge from hand-cut glass.
Minnick holds a degree in studio art from the University of California and has worked as an exhibiting artist and educator for twenty years.She recently opened Kari Minnick Art Glass Studio in the heart of the new Arts and Entertainment district in Silver Spring, MD. Selected by the Hillyer Art Space Advisory Committee for Washington Region Programming, Minnick was recommended due to her unique talent and vision.
IA's Hillyer Art Space is funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
