The Art Walk
|The Glass Art of Steven Rolfe Powell|
I promised you pictures and here they are. It was a super bowl night of the arts in St. Petersburg! Dale Chihuly spoke, Morean Art show of master teachers from the Pinellas Center for the Arts and students was a block buster, Michelle Tuegel's gallery opening, the Train Depot Pottery complex, and Duncan McClellen's huge fancier than ever, studio and ever expanding hot shop!!! Duncan had two visiting artist that knocked it out of the park with their collections and demonstrations : Steven Rolfe Powell and Joseph Cavalieri.
Stadium Seats to View Art!!! That is Big!
You would think it was a rock star, but no, it is a glass star!!! Steven Powell is a start in the glass blowing world and here he wows the crowd with his awesome talent. I am trying to think when I ever saw stadium seats set up for the viewing of art. It is just so impressive there are almost no words. If you doubt for one minute the power of art, the just look at these pictures. Now imagine what your community might do. This was once a dream in Duncan Mc Clellen's mind...only a thought, only an idea. But then with vision and leadership he made it a reality. It is evidence of what one person can do, when they have passion and persistence. Of course there are many others supporting and helping, many who have become partners along the way...but first there must be the spark that catches flame. I am not sure how this community will ever thank Duncan for all he has done. I hope you have a Duncan in your community or perhaps, with his example, you will become a leader of the arts.
