Please join me on Thursday, April 5th for an open house at Galloway Gallery and Gardens.
I have lived in Fondren since 2008 and have purchased and remodeled my home on Galloway Avenue….just a few blocks from the Fondren First Thursday festivities. I am known as a glass artist and part of my discipline is to create paintings and images on paper and board. I started last year opening my home studio from 5:00-8:00pm on the same night as Fondren First Thursday.READ MORE

How Pearl River Glass found its way to Missouri is just one example of how many of our projects happen. Eric Held, Elmer Held’s son, is a member of Christ Lutheran Church in Jackson, Mississippi. Elmer is a long time member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Imperial, Missouri. While visiting with his son and family, he admired the windows created by PRGS for Christ Lutheran Church here in Jackson. For some time St. Paul’s has wanted a stained glass window in the chancel behind the altar. After receiving an inquiry from St. Paul’s I traveled to Missouri to see St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and to meet with Reverend Charlie Schultz, their minister and to determine the scope of work for this project.READ MORE
The S.T.E.A.M. kids of The Boys & Girls Club expressed an earnest interest in learning about and responding to a creative environment. In addition to creating their own glass art a number of the young men and women were inspired to write down thoughts and symbols and sketch out ideas in their note books. To see our process through the eyes of the young people afforded an additional effect in that their enthusiasm rekindled the creative fire of our own artisans.
