Meet the Artist: daily presentations at ARTWORKS 2015

Monday 21 September 2015: Liz Waugh McManus – Drawing with Glass

Liz will be at the exhibition today demonstrating creative drawing techniques with glass. This is an ideal opportunity for visitors to find out more about the ideas, techniques and processes involved in the creation of her sculptural artworks in the exhibition.

In addition to her work as an artist, Liz also runs Obelon Arts, which produces theatre shows and organises arts projects. She is also a member of the Contemporary Glass Society.

I enjoy working in glass because of its versatility: transparency, opacity, colour, two or three dimensionality, capacity to ‘hold’ or reflect light. It offers an artist many metaphors due to its fragility, strength, sharpness and associations. I am inspired by fragments of stories often discovered in books, toys, archival film footage, photographs which I have inherited.

Liz Waugh McManus will be at the ARTWORKS exhibition from 10am – 4pm.
