2017 Summer's End Art Show - Scottsville, KY

Awards were presented on August 26.  No glass category for me so I entered one of my oil paintings titled "Billy" and won 1st place in the painting category.   

Horizon Contemporary Landscape - Danville, KY

Two hundred and twenty entries were submitted to this show from around the country.  Only 30 were excepted, so I was thrilled to get two of my favorite pieces juried into the show - "Genesis" and "Heliocentric."  The show runs September 1-November 11 at the Community Arts Center.

Rooted in Agriculture - Franklin, KY

Gallery on the Square in downtown Franklin is hosting a juried exhibition about Agriculture.  Well, unbeknownst to me, some of my pieces actually look like hay bale designs.  I've entered "Hay Bale Babies" and "Heavenly Hay Bales" to this exhibition.  The show runs September 21 - October 28.

about

BIO

Originally from Wyoming, Lynette currently resides in Bowling Green, Kentucky.  She has worked in the art glass industry for 25 years and has created stained glass windows for homes, libraries, museums and churches.  During this time Lynette began fusing glass, creating functional and sculptural art glass pieces.  Her art has received numerous awards from juried exhibitions, most recently 1st Place for "Genesis" at the Celebration for the Arts held in the Kentucky Museum, Bowling Green.  Lynette signs her art "Nett" a childhood nickname.

ARTIST STATEMENT

As a contemporary abstract glass artist, I create designs that evoke nature and intimate galactic objects, heat, and motion.  I layer thin silver, glass powders, and frit onto reactive glass or onto glass that is sulfur/selenium bearing.  An intricate fusing process is used to coalesce silver and the reactive glass in a high-firing kiln. This creates a variety of interesting reactions, such as streaks and halos that are subtle or dramatic, colorful or dark, and each will produce an intriguing and unique design. My focus toward graphic and galactical wanderlust initiated my current series “Halos.”   (Image, "Quasars II" 19")
