Beaufort-based glass artist, Kathy Oda, is presenting her newest glasswork as part of her Coastal Glassworks exhibit at Art League Gallery. Fern leaves, flowering bromeliad and images of sea turtles are abundant in her glass. “Living in the Lowcountry inspires me. The proximity to the ocean, the marsh and the unique flora and fauna all combine to move me to interpret them in glass. Using a unique layering technique, I strive to give the illusion of movement in each of my pieces.”
Kathy travels around the country participating in juried art shows. She likes to be able to connect with the people who buy her glass and the art shows gives her that opportunity. She has received various awards with her glass but her favorite was winning space on a billboard where a piece of her glass was showcased for a year as part of the ArtPop! program in 2016.
Coastal Glassworks by Kathy Oda will be on exhibit at Art League Gallery, June 4 – 29, 2019. An artist reception will be held on Wednesday, June 5, from 5-7pm.
Kathy will be donating 10% of her proceeds to Hilton Head’s Coastal Discovery Museum.
