Join us for a special open studio day at our offices (1366 N. Sedgwick Street) on Saturday, June 8th, from 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM, during the Old Town Art Fair and Wells Street Art Festival.
We will be hosting renowned Pittsburgh-based glass mosaic artist Daviea Davis for a guest open studio session from 12:00 - 3:00 PM; a fantastic opportunity to see a contemporary artist, who has been directly inspired by Edgar Miller's own art, in action. Guests will be able to observe and chat with the artist as she creates some of her own exquisite hand-cut stained-glass work. We will also be displaying special examples of Miller's stained-glass and mosaic work throughout the afternoon.
Stop by for a quick break and maybe a refreshment or two on your way to the festivals!
