2018 Winter Exhibition

“The Flame”
Tom Philabaum

Opening Reception: Feb 3, 5-8

February 3 – April 28, 2018

After tending the fire for 47 years, Tom Philabaum will turn off his glass furnace for the last time at the end of April. Our show celebrates his glass blowing career of almost five decades with this show of some of his earliest and latest works, and finally, the finale of the hot shop.

Though the furnaces will be dismantled at the end of April, Tom will continue to paint and fuse glass in the studio space and the Gallery will remain open indefinitely.

Tom will talk about his career in the Philabaum Studio on Feb 3rd, at 5 pm, followed by a reception.  The open seating is very limited. 

A second presentation of his talk will take place at the Tucson Museum of Art on March 31st, 11 am, with reserved seating. Click here to see more details.
