Art Opening Event Taking Place at South Shore


Sylvia Chesson, Alameda resident and fused-glass artist, celebrates the opening of her show at South Shore Center with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. this evening, Saturday, Jan. 11.

Cheeson, who is a member of the Alameda Art Association, says that her show is a “teaching exhibit.” It is located in a gallery near See’s Candies.

She invites community members to come find out about some of her artistic secrets, while enjoying refreshments.

Chesson’s last show in town, “Reflections on Water and Nature”, was held at the Main Library from late June through September 2013.

The artist says she is enticed by the beauty of richly colored glass. She strives to use this medium to translate personal experiences into one-of-a-kind fused-glass art works.

In addition, she hopes her work showcases the unique transparent and reflective qualities of select glasses.
