New Jersey. January 16,2012- Glen G. Guarino will show "Simplicity" in Art Connections 8 at George Segal Gallery.  This well-known gallery is on the campus of Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey.  Now in its eighth year, the exhibit features works by local, regional and nationally acclaimed artists.  The show will be open from January 18 through February 19, 2012. The Artist Reception is Sunday, January 22 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM.  For directions please visit http://www.montclair.edu/welcome/directions.html

Glen Guarino designed "Simplicity" to use a single board of American Black Cherry. In this board were several areas with burr sections that he chose to cut out, slice and then book match producing a pleasant focal point highlighting the beauty of the wood.  As with many of his pieces, Guarino chose to do a clear hand rubbed finish to allow the beauty of the wood to take center stage.

Guarino enjoys designing and making furniture for corporate and private clients.  He exhibits frequently in juried gallery exhibits and museums.  Guarino has been honored as a "Signature Artist" at the Noyes Museum of Art as an exemplar of the highest caliber of artistic standards.  His work has been published in Lark Studio Series: Tables, Wood Art Today 2 by Schiffer, 500 Cabinet by Lark, Fine Woodworking Magazine, Woodshop News, New Jersey Savvy Living just to name a few.  He has also been interviewed on radio and cable television.

Scrounge

Scrounging for materials and tools is a central part of my studio practice, and there are great bargains to be found!  In the past year, I’ve purchased a nice amount of silver for about $2/ounce, received several pounds of enamels, and refurbished hundreds of rusty chasing tools.  Luck has a lot of influence, and the generosity of donors cannot be understated, but there are also strategies involved to help make oneself luckier as well.
