Lynette Campbell Glass Art Retrospective

Lynette Campbell died in 2005, cutting all too short a life devoted to making glass. I blogged last year about the enjoyment I get from the pieces of hers I have. Now there's to be a retrospective exhibition of work she left behind, which will provide an opportunity for others to acquire and enjoy Lyn's glass art. Burning Issues is the gallery in Whangārei where Lynette was blowing again just before her death. It was set up by Keith Mahy, who taught Lyn glass blowing at Northland Polytech, beginning in 1989. So it's a really appropriate gallery to host such an exhibition. There's a preview at 5pm on Friday 26 September, and the exhibition runs from then until October 23rd. If you can be anywhere near Whangārei during that period, do go and have a look at this exhibition - it promises to be fabulous. Burning Issues is in the Harbour Basin complex in Whangārei, down by the river.
