FALLBROOK – Galaxy of Glass, one of Fallbrook Art Center's longest running and most popular shows, continues to attract new artists eager to participate as well as collectors and art appreciators alike.

Presented in the center's main exhibition space, The Janice Griffiths Gallery, the show features over 200 pieces of original glass art created by 19 regional glass artists selected to participate.

Using a myriad processes including hot blown, cast, fused, slumped, carved and assembled, the works run the gamut from large to intimate – variety abounds. The shop section of the show features jewelry, tumblers, wineglasses, cheese boards, mosaics, paperweights, garden art, vases, animal figures and much more.

This show offers visitors a wonderful opportunity to experience fine art glass in a beautiful gallery setting affording them the ability to begin or expand their collection. As with all center presentations, staff are very grateful for their sponsors who make these exhibitions possible.


In addition to the Galaxy of Glass, visitors will enjoy "Pastiche," featuring a compilation of paintings of varied subjects and styles by Jolene Vanyo in The Salon & Lehmann Galleries.

The show continues daily through Oct. 25, Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from Noon to 3 p.m. Admission is free to all members, center patrons, active military, those under 18 and students with ID; admission for others is $6. Now is a good time to take advantage of their new membership special as the admission charge will be credited to one's membership fee. For as little as $35 a year, members can enjoy free admission to all the shows.

Fallbrook Art Center is a distinguished, accessible, and welcoming institution that offers a diverse range of exemplary art exhibitions, educational programs and community outreach events.
