Fascinated by the art of glass blowing since she was a child, artist Carlyn Ray has studied with masters in Murano, Italy as well as under legendary glass artist Dale Chihuly. Ray is finally opening her own studio at 1820 Irving Blvd. in the Design District, starting with a party on Friday and Saturday evening that includes gifts, raffles and a live hot glass show.
In addition to debuting her studio, Ray will also be launching her Kickstarter campaign to fund her nonprofit project, Art Reaching Out. ARO is a multi-disciplinary approach to art that includes science, math, engineering, technology and creativity, and is aimed at young men and women and at-risk youth. She is currently working on ARO projects with student groups at the Hockaday School and the Episcopal School of Dallas.
The studio party will be going from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday evening and 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Stop by to see her in action and to help out a great cause!
1820 Irving Blvd. Dallas, TX 75207
