Written by 

art glassartistA showing of Japanese glass artist Tadashi Torii’s works will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. June 21 at Jackson County Green Energy Park’s art gallery with a free reception that is open to the public.

Torii’s glass art displays a wide variety of shapes and colors that are not normally seen in Western North Carolina. He draws inspiration from his emotions and inner thoughts as he designs his glass.

He was born and raised in a suburb of Osaka, Japan, and moved to the U.S. in the late 1980s. He moved to WNC in 2011 seeking focus, relaxation, serenity, and inspiration to create innovative and exciting works of glass art.

The GEP’s gallery is unique because all of the work displayed has been made using renewable energy. www.facebook.com/JCGEP, www.jcgep.org or 828.631.0271.
