The Brentwood Arts Exchange presents its Front Window Featured Artist: eco-artist Erwin Timmers.
Glass sculptor and Washington Glass School co-founder, Erwin Timmers’ colorful eco-friendly glass sculpture will be on display in the Brentwood Arts Exchange gallery’s Front Window Gallery from May 11 – June 29, 2013.

Thoughtful and ingenious, Erwin’s sculpture calls attention to contemporary issues through a creative re-engineering of often-overlooked forms and concepts, often focusing on industrial salvage and recycling. Erwin is featured in various prominent collections and has received numerous commissions. His eco-artwork has been on display locally in Zenith Gallery, Fraser Gallery, and Bender Gallery in Asheville, NC.

There will be a gallery artist talk on June 22 at 2pm.

Gallery Hours:

  • Monday – Friday: 10am-7pm
