JAMES HUBBELL: STAINED GLASS SCULPTURE
“My world is the world of objects, of inner musings made real…I would like to see the reintroduction of beauty into the modern world with the understanding that it, like love, has the power to change things.”—James Hubbell
Since the early 1960s James Hubbell has produced thousands of works of art including hand-crafted windows, doors, gates, and sculpture in almost every material, such as wood, stone, metal, and glass. His art has been embodied in homes, schools, gardens, nature centers, monasteries, museums, and peace parks around the world. Widely known for his organic style art and architecture, Hubbell aims to inspire those who wish to connect through beauty. This incredible auction lot is an opportunity for you to live with a one-of-a-kind Hubbell stained glass sculpture in your own home or dwelling.

A TASTE OF ART: PRIVATE ART WORKSHOP
WITH ROBIN DOUGLAS
Wildly popular OMA teaching artist Robin Douglas is offering a custom-tailored Taste of Art workshop to a lucky group of up to ten people. Douglas has been offering art classes to curious creatives, hands-on workshops for the daring, and art history lectures for the eager-to-learn that are often sold out.

Feeling intimated to bring pen to paper, or brush to canvas? Fear not! Douglas is a gifted teacher with the ability instill confidence for both novice and experienced artists.
