    • July 1-October 29 - Sandwich, Massachusetts
      SIDNEY HUTTER THROUGH THE YEARS: GLASS, LIGHT & COLOR July 1 - 9:30 am - October 29 at 5:00 pm
      The Sandwich Glass Museum is proud to host the premiere retrospective of glass artist Sidney Hutter spanning over 40 years.
      “I discovered a passion for working with glass in college and went on to pursue an education in glass art. My interests in design and architecture and a background in glass blowing and fabrication formed the foundation for my body of work. As my art evolved I began to develop and create specialized techniques using plate glass and ultraviolet adhesives. These techniques lead me to depict a three-dimensional image of a vase using two-dimensional components.
