WMODA is partnering with Gasper Arts to promote creativity in our community. On Saturday, May 14th, 2022, at the two locations on South Federal Highway, visitors can enjoy artist demonstrations and exhibitions for selling ceramics and glass art.
The WMODA Museum creates cultural experiences and provides life-long learning opportunities to build the Dania Beach Arts Community. The new Gasper Arts Center expands this experience as an incubator for creativity with hand-on facilities for making ceramics and glass art.
Gasper Arts will be open FREE to the public from 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. with tours of the new studios and shared workspaces plus demonstrations of pottery making, glass mosaics, painting and more. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony with commissioners from Dania Beach at 1:00 p.m. to formally open the new facility. 22 newly renovated spaces are now available for artists and creative professionals to lease. Gasper Arts has three new state of the art ceramics kilns and 12 pottery wheels that can support professional artists making ceramics and students learning at scheduled classes.
WMODA will be open FREE to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with family-friendly activities including “play with clay” sessions and scavenger hunts around the museum. WMODA features an extraordinary collection of pottery, porcelain and glass art spanning design and social history from the 1800’s to Present day. Popular exhibits include an enchanting Lladró Porcelain Chandelier and radiant glass art by Dale Chihuly. The Museum shop’s Studio Collection features unique works of art made by artists working in our community.
“This is not your grandma’s china cabinet,” says Louise Irvine, the Executive Director & Curator of WMODA. “Glass is hot and ceramics are cool at WMODA!”
