Northwest Light and Colour is the name for the new exhibit by members of Terminal City Glass, which will see its opening at the Port Moody Arts Centre next Wednesday (Feb. 13).

Among the co-operative studio’s 200 members is Coquitlam resident Maria Batista, who started blowing glass at a TCG weekend event four years ago; last month, she returned home from workshops at the renowned Corning Museum of Glass in New York.

“Working with hot molten glass is complex, challenging, versatile, dangerous, exciting and rewarding all at the same time. This is what keeps me coming back to glass again and again,” she writes in her artist statement.

Her latest collection, Between Forest and Sea, is inspired by her quiet Coquitlam neighbourhood.

Her work can be seen via Instagram @mariidadesigns.
