Grant Garmezy

Come see Grant Garmezy as a Guest Artist at the Museum at these events from Jan 25–31. Please refer to individual events for specific dates and times.

Grant stumbled upon glassmaking while studying Craft/Material Studies with a focus on jewelry at the Virginia Commonwealth School of the Arts. Now, more than ten years later, he is a full-time glass artist based out of Richmond, Virginia. He draws his inspiration from nature, striving to capture not only the physical features of animal imagery, but also to tell a story. Even when describing what he loves about glass, Garmezy refers to the natural world saying: “I love its mustang quality of never wanting to be tamed. I love how it takes a team of highly skilled individuals to make my work.”
