Have you heard of Sheila and Neil, “the first non-flightless snails in the world?” How about a snoogle, kelpie, pegamallow, or preying beetis? Maybe you’re familiar with the candy corn creature that “helps foster kids find their forever home with his tiny little brain and his HUGE heart?”
Each of these wonderful, whimsical creatures—and many more—are on display now at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC)’s 2021 incarnation of GLASSTASTIC, a popular biennial collaboration between K-6 students and professional glass artists from throughout New England.
A total of 27 glass sculptures will be on display at BMAC from March 18 through June 13, alongside a digital gallery of the nearly 800 drawings that were submitted by children from all across the United States. A reception for GLASSTASTIC and BMAC’s other spring exhibits will take place later this year.
BMAC is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with masks and social distancing required. Walk-ins are always welcome, or visitors can make a reservation in advance at brattleboromuseum.org.
