Check out Craig Ex at the WEEDS Homegrown Artshow last week at 1350 William St. in East Vancouver. Featuring a ton of expertly-made glass, visual art, and glass-blowing demos, it was a trippy feast for the senses- and did I mention there was a dab bar, too?
Not only was the Homegrown Artshow a celebration of art and glass
Carol and Don, the owners of WEEDS, said:
“We’re just having a great celebration of all our people that work so hard for us and are great artists themselves. Then we brought in friends from the glass culture like Redbeard, Skullfish, and GIbsons… and so we have an amazing amount of wicked glass here.”
Wicked glass, indeed. If the only glass you’ve ever seen
Next, Craig goes around the back to check out the live glassblowing demos to see how they do what they do and he watches the glass artists kick the heat up a couple notches as they forge art in the fire.
Craig also chatted to the glass artist known as Redbeard, who told him:
“WEEDS is always supporting artists and I just want to give a shout out to WEEDS.
Thanksguys, you guys rock!”
Craig also ran into some friends who came out to support the local community like Opus 420 and Dori Dempster from The Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary. Dori talks about the movement to Save Vancouver’s Dispensaries, which is fighting to keep the dispensaries open to provide Canadians with the access they deserve.
