Jilly's glass mural to be featured at Art Prize
September 24 - October 12

News: Jilly's glass mural "Engulfed in Glass" has been accepted in the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum for ArtPrize 2014

Wondering when ArtPrize is?   Jilly Barnes is counting down with goose bumps. Accepted into the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum with her 18 foot glass mural "Engulfed in Glass". It represents the 4 seasons and 4 different times of day along the lakeshore. This 18foot glass mural started with an idea, transformed into a sketch then the glass prototype was created.   After 698 hours,72 firings, 3 pieces of drift wood, ¾ cup of dune sand, 2 boxes of Band-Aids, a tube of Neosporin, 156 screws, a quarter mile of bubble wrap, along with the 26 hours to hang, Engulfed in Glass is ready to share. The idea came about from a question frequently asked in Jilly's Pentwater gallery. Why live in Michigan? The four seasons! The mural starts with the romantic moon washed Winter night transitioning thru the Spring morning colors in the sky. Summer sunsets are everyone's favorite and finally it's Autumn, sentimental melancholy feelings are washed away in the afternoon with the blustery winds blowing in the dark clouds and crashing waves. Note the encapsulated dune sand and pockets of driftwood. "Engulfed in Glass" is pure Michigan.
