First City Art Center’s (FCA) Hot Glass, Cold Brew, Valentines edition, on Friday, Feb. 8 – 5-9 p.m. was another huge success. Nearly 300 spectators enjoyed demonstration pieces from Joe Thompson owner of Bear Creek Glass Studio and Shane King, one of FCA’s most recent mentorship graduates, along with other glass guild members. The FCA pottery guild also provided an added attraction by giving customers an opporutinity to glaze a pot for raku firing. Throughout the night the pottery guild fired glazed pots that customers could take home. Visitors enjoyed the talented band Three Bean Soup, our music guest in the covered patio.
FCA’s new facility has allowed our signature event HGCB to become a multifaceted art experience. No wonder we have named the building the Creative Warehouse.
Our next HGCB event is March 22. While details are still being developed, it promises to be a lively display of art, music and libation.
