Engineering technologist Roberta Pyle has been making stained glass for over 18 years, and she’s been fusing, blowing and torching glass for 4 years at Glass Axis studio.
Now she has a chance to share her talents with a bigger audience, as she’s being featured in her first gallery exhibition this fall.
Glass Axis, an art collective located in the Franklinton neighborhood of Columbus’s west side, will show Pyle’s work in their Kennedy Galleries’ fall exhibit.
Pyle’s accomplishments will be shown as part of a rotating exhibit celebrating the holiday season. “The month of October,” Pyle says, “is featuring Halloween and fall item. November will have fall and Thanksgiving pieces, and December will feature Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and winter items.”
These varying exhibits, switched out quickly in time for each holiday theme, are meant to mirror the hustle and bustle that the season brings to people’s lives.
For Pyle, art absolutely expresses what’s important in her life.“Life in general inspires me,” she says. “The colors of the glass inspire me. That is really why I started working with glass, the colors.”
