To celebrate its second anniversary in Algoma, Ladybug Glass Studio & Gallery is featuring new glass and photography pieces by Kimberly Lyon. An opening reception will be held during First Friday Art in Algoma on Nov. 4, 5-8 pm, and it will continue Nov. 5, 10 am – 4 pm. The gallery will also have some specials to kick off its third year.
Lyon works in fused and stained glass and has developed a distinctive photographic style by using a macro lens to explore some of her glass creations. The resulting abstract photographs are mostly printed on metal to enrich the colors and brightness, and fabrics created from the photos are turned into table linens, scarves and bags.
In addition to Lyon’s work, Ladybug Gallery sells astrophotography, jewelry, paintings and textile arts created by local artists, and it typically highlights the work of a guest artist.
