Arts Prescott Cooperative Gallery will be celebrating the International Art Glass month with a guest show of glass artist Deborah Crowley, Mark Duncan and members Cindy Myers’ and Vanessa Tamarin’s blown and slumped art glass. Check out Rowena Tank's Lampwork while you visit the gallery.

Cindy took her first glass blowing class at the Yavapai College in 1982. She says that she has been in love with the process of hand blown glass since the first day in class. Eventually, because of Cindy’s innate talent and mastery of the process of glass blowing, she became one of the glass blowing instructors at Yavapai College along with her other duties as a ceramics instructor. Cindy has touched and influenced most of the other local glass artists here in Prescott.
Cindy is unique in that she blows glass alone. Most glass artists have an assistant or a team to help them through the many complicated and sometimes dangerous steps creating hand blown glass. Cindy says that she thoroughly enjoys the process of working in the studio alone and developing a process to execute her vision on her own.
Cindy’s blown glass along with her hand woven rugs can be seen at Arts Prescott Cooperative Gallery on Whiskey Row. “The Co-op” is Prescott’s hometown gallery featuring the work of 20 local artists, all of them owners of the gallery.
