photo of Tim Tate by Matthew Girard Tim Tate was awarded the highest prize for sculpture from the Virginia A Groot Foundation this past week. From over 500 entries, three artists are selected to receive a grant. Tim's work in sculpture was selected as an artist of "exceptional talent". The mission of the Virginia A. Groot Foundation is to recognize and award artists working three-dimensionally.
The Washington Glass School is a unique educational program in the Nation's Capital area, operating as the sculptural glass education, artistic and community center and resource for the mid-Atlantic region, serving students, artists and the general public. It encourages research and exploration of new techniques in all aspects of glass (blown, cast, fused, cold worked) as well as other media such as steel, ceramics, lighting and concrete. Our goal is to introduce artists in other media to the depth, processes and joys of glass to enhance their work.
