Hey everyone, have we got something special for you! Do you love art? Well you have the chance to go to World Wide Art Los Angeles for free! World Wide Art L.A. is an international fine arts show that will serve as a visual montage of influential fine art in 2014, as it exists across the globe.

However if their description is any indication, this isn’t going to be your run-of-the-mill art show. From their website:

“We are a different type of art show in that we are offering the floor to our exhibitors, and others who would like to be involved, as a platform to help promote Social Equality and Cultural Awareness, as well as Environmental Awareness, as it pertains to their work or organizations.”

World Wide Art L.A. will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center October 16th-19th, and they are offering free tickets. All you have to do is sign up online and print them out, but you have to use this link! Of course if you would like to buy a ticket to support the event they are only $15.

A bonus, when you visit the art show and sign in as an artist, art fan, museum member, or art collector and get a great Art book for free!

Sliced Glass Art

Hope everyone is doing well! Today I thought I’d share with you all something a bit more fun. Loren Stump is a California native artist known for his beautiful stained glass art work. He began his work over 40 years ago and in 1993 discovered his love for glass in molten form. He is self taught, believe it or not, and has a amazing series of sliced glass pieces. He works in a style called murrine, which consist of melting many rods of class together. When sliced they reveal portraits or “paintings.” His works have appeared all over the world. You can find his works at the Corning Museum of Glass, The Ertz Israel Museum, and the Kyokei Fujita Glass Museum. Or just see below for these amazing works.
