June Artists’ Reception to be held at the Off Track Gallery


The public is invited to an artists’ reception Saturday June 11, from 4-7 p.m., honoring Carol Korfin, fused glass; Joyce Nash, acrylic; and Sandy Levin, glass.

Carol Korfin says, “Each piece of glass art that I design is lovingly created in my head before drawing and cutting the elements from the finest quality glass and firing it in a kiln made especially for glass fusing. Many pieces require multiple firings to achieve the designs and textures to my satisfaction.”

Joyce Nash is a water media painter who loves to create art that evokes thought and feeling. Primarily a studio painter, she works from sketches and photographs she takes on location and places great emphasis on design elements such as value and color studies as she works. Nash exhibits locally in several venues and has won awards for her work. Using the theme, “Summertime Hues”, Nash is including several of her seascapes depicting the California Coastline in her current wall exhibit.

Sandy Levin states, “I use a variety of techniques in my kiln-formed and casted glass pieces. I normally work on a series of work, making five to ten pieces that have similar aspects, then move to another technique. Among my current work, you will find paintings with glass, casted forms, screen printing on glass, unique drop ring vases and bowls, and plates with hand-pulled glass stringer. Each piece takes several days to complete with multiple firings and cold working to produce a professional finish.”

Wine and refreshments will be served at the reception.

In addition, all artwork in the Gallery will be 10 percent off the entire day.

This event is free and open to the public.

Off Track Gallery is located at 937 South Coast Highway 101, Suite C-103, Encinitas, 760-942-3636,
