Reflections of Nebulae (2) – 3 Aug to 8 Sept

Arts & Disability Forum is presents Reflections of Nebulae – 2, the second exhibition of sculptural forms in glass by kiln-formed glass artist Keith Sheppard.

Exploring the relationship between glass and light, and reflecting his observations and interpretation of Nebulae stars within the galaxies of the Universe, Keith’s glass art predominantly involves the infusion of metals into the glass. This process gives each sculptural form a further dimension of uniqueness and identity, enhancing the vibrant colourations.

These processes are transferred into Keith’s interpretation of the stars; depicting their existence, shaping their markings, clouds, and gases from their birth in Nebulae, to hot blue stars, red super giants and their eventual end in a Supernova explosion.

The exhibition will launch on Thursday August 3rd at 5.30pm at the Arts & Disability Forum Gallery, Royal Avenue, Belfast, and will run until Friday September 8th 2017. Keith’s exhibition forms part of Craft NI’s August Craft Month 2017.

  • Opening: Thursday 3rd August at 5.30pm to Friday 8th September
  • Artist talk: Wednesday 16th August at 1:30pm.
