This month’s featured artists are stained glass artist, Becky Henson, and glass enamel artist, Cheryl Chapman. We still encourage everyone to follow recommended COVID-19 precautions, but we are eager to see you once again!
Becky Henson–Stained Glass Artist. Becky’s work lets the sun shine in on art!
Glass artist Becky Henson creates unique stained glass. Her popular pieces often include scenes of the surrounding mountains and rivers. She says that the stunning beauty of Central Oregon inspires her. Since childhood, Becky has loved how light filters through glass and changes as the day gets long. She has created so many various designs that her glass work includes something for everyone.
Becky has everything from sun catchers, to small window hangers, to series of themed stained glass art, to lampshades and full window and door pieces. Her use of different types and textures and colors of glass make her creations vivid, exciting and oh, so special!
Meet Glass Artist Cheryl Chapman.
Cheryl is new to the Gallery and her unique glass art is making a splash! Cheryl’s whimsical paintings reflect her love of dogs, cats, animals and nature. And she shows her unusual art via a process of she has engineered over time. Cheryl calls what she does “high fire glass enamel reverse painting.” Simply put, but not simple to do, Cheryl’s pieces are originals she has drawn, then painted in high fire glass enamel and fired in a kiln. Part of the wonder of this process is that each painting is done in reverse and fired. Some of her pieces are fired up to five times! Her playful, heartwarming style brings a sense of fun to her colorful pieces of glass art!
Cheryl has been creating this type of glass art for the last 12 years. It’s a process she has perfected. Her art is something special and will be a big hit with the dog and cat lover, not to mention those who love nature. These unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade pieces of art will be a treasured gift for the receiver. You need to see the sun sparkle through these unique pieces, so visit the Artists’ Gallery Sunriver for your viewing!
