Paly Fiery Arts Glass Sale Fall 2017

Paly Fiery Arts Glass Sale Fall 2017. September 15+16, 2017.

Paly Fiery Arts Glass Sale Fall 2017 showcases over 1000 glass objet d’art hand-blown by instructors, alumni and advanced art students. Find gorgeous bowls, vases, pumpkins, acorns, pears, and more.

I know, it borders on blasphemy to suggest you attend a High School art event especially if the event does not involve someone you know intimately – like your son or daughter. However I saw glass art from Paly’s Fiery Arts program displayed and sold at the prestigious Palo Alto Clay and Glass Festival. I was impressed.

Shop the sale and check out glass blowing demonstrations.

Free Admission.

Take a ride up the mountain and see first hand why the Art Fair SourceBook declared the Kings Mountain Art Fair the #1 Fine Arts Fair in Northern California (and maybe feel a little smug knowing there is an Art Fair SourceBook.)
