August Artist Feature

Dolores Barrett

Based in California

Dolores Barrett was born in San Mateo, California in 1961 and pursued a career
in music, specializing in orchestral and choral conducting. She was introduced to the medium of glass in the summer of 2002 while attending an international porcelain conference.

Ms. Barrett's unique style of glass jewelry regularly appears in various national and international exhibitions. She was a finalist in the 2004 international EMERGE glass competition sponsored by Bullseye Glass Company, and has been selected to participate in the Pilchuck Glass School's annual exhibition and auction in Seattle since 2005. In 2009, she was selected as a featured artist in The Ventura Museum's special exhibit Telling Our Stories, and participated in Wheaton Art's Glass Weekend from 2011 to 2017.

 

A keen eye for color and design, as well as atypical use of the glass medium, has garnered her attention from a growing number of collectors around the United States. The artist enjoys the challenge of special commissions, and her work can be purchased from an array of fine stores and galleries.
