The Flame - Tom Philabaum

“The Flame”, a show celebrating almost five decades of Philabaum’s work, will open at the gallery on Saturday, February 3rd, with a reception from 5-8pm.
After blowing glass for 47 years and tending his own studio furnace for 43 years, Tom Philabaum will retire from glassblowing at the end of April. Our show celebrates his glass blowing career, and finally, the finale of his hot shop.

Tom will present a talk on his career to a  limited number of guests on Feb 3rd at 5pm. Seats are first come first served. The talk will be repeated in a much larger space at the Tucson Museum of Art on March 31st. Reservations can be made for that presentation at https://tucsonmuseumofart.org/event/leadership-circle-lecture-series-the-flame-tom-philabaum/ .

The exhibition will show through the year, and Tom will continue to make his collage fused paintings in the studio space. The Gallery will remain open indefinitely.

During the month of February, a percentage of sales of works by Philabaum will be donated to the PWR!Gym, a research-based Tucson non-profit, dedicated to slowing the effects of Parkinson’s Disease.

Located at Five Points, the gallery is seven blocks south of the downtown center at 711 S 6th Avenue.
