During the month of October, glass artist Maxine Davis of North Ferrisburgh, will be exhibiting her glass art all around Shelburne. There will be displays at the Shelburne Museum gift shop, the new Pierson Library and the Shelburne Town Hall.
From her home studio, Davis has been working with fused glass for the past seven years and had been involved in all types of art for almost 20 years.
She is a retired child psychologist.
In her work she uses color and whimsy to make people smile. Her glass panels which can range from 4 x 6 inches to more than 20 x 20 inches, featuring animals, scenery, people doing everyday things and more. Much of her work reminds people of folk art: simple but expressive.
Davis’ work isn’t limited to panels. At her studio you can see bowls, platters, clocks, dishes, jewelry, drawer knobs and more. Drop into the Shelburne venues during October and see what art glass can be made into, when you use your imagination.
Her new website: MaxineDavisGlassArt.com will be launched in October. Her facebook page, MaxineDavisGlassArt, shows what she has been doing over the years.
Davis’ studio is open for visits. To schedule a visit, call 802-425-3034 to be sure that she is there, or contact her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
