Come view the enchanting glass masks on display through the end of December. This special exhibit, by artist Jan Golden, features a unique blend of materials, such as shell, bone, feathers and wire along with glass and metal to create a mystical experience.

Jan Golden was classically trained in sculpture at St. Andrews Presbyterian College. After college she designed products and packaging; eventually leaving to start her own business in design and home renovation. Jan embraced glass fusing in 2006 while learning the intricacies of this difficult medium. She soon realized that she could combine other skills and materials with the glass and achieve something a lot more personal. It is here in the mask series that Jan is exploring new ways to bring out the many universal personalities.
