Create! Magazine is excited to share the announcement of Nathie Katzoff Art & Design Gallery's Spring Open House event, Neon + Fire, on Friday April 8th, from 5-11. The gallery is highlighting local artist, KT Hancock, in an exhibition of her never before released neon glass artwork and also displaying original works in cast and fused glass by Nathie Katzoff. The event follows on the heels of the Pioneer Square Art Walk, which is held the night before. This up-and-coming gallery contains a selection of high-quality contemporary art in a variety of mediums. You will discover fine oil paintings, exquisite glass art, and unique sculptures in wood and metal, by Nathie Katzoff and other artists. If you would like to RSVP to the event, email the gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org.
KT Hancock is famed for the complex merging of steel with delicate blown glass. Her signature pieces are larger-than-life jewels and gems, made of glass. At the Open House in April, she will be displaying new wall-hung jewel pieces with a special neon glow.
Nathie Katzoff is well-known for his sculptural functional art in wood - large complex staircases for the rich and famous, and luxury wooden baths. Since Covid, he had time to pursue his passion for creating abstract works in cast and fused glass. His Glass Murals are typically three or four feet high by five to seven feet long. The surface is not flat, but undulates and ripples with texture - and they sit about eight inches off the wall on which they are hung.
The pieces reflect different hues of light onto the wall, and can be backlit with LED lighting for stunning effects. They are fluid, organic representations of the ever-changing condition of Nature and our environment. Katzoff is inspired by the oceans and forests of the PNW.
