Q & A with Julia Reimer from Firebrand Glass Studio!

We are pleased to share this Q & A with an Alberta artist! Julia lives Black Diamond and works at Firebrand Glass Studio ( www.firebrandglass.ca). Enjoy the Q & A:

Q: Do you have anyfavourite ways of finding inspiration before starting new glass work?
A: Going for a hike in the Sheep River Area – near Sandy McNabb. I keep my eyes open to the inspiration around me – this time in nature grounds me and inspires me.

Q: Does your style change as you grow as an artist?
A: I think yes, as you become engaged in other ideas your style can change. I think within this there are themes that persist.

Q: What makes Black Diamond and Alberta great places to be an artist?
A: Black Diamond is a fabulous place to be an artist especially if you love nature and are inspired by it. The town is 15 minutes away from a provincial park, so there are so many opportunities to hike, photograph, sketch and just have some quiet contemplative recharging moments near by. Also, most of the houses in Black Diamond have large lots, so there is plenty of room for studio spaces, storing of supplies and the cost of living here is reasonable; we would not have been able to have the studio spaces we have here in Calgary. The other thing that makes this an artist community, is that there are other artists and arts focused businesses here. There is a relaxed energy here, where people are able to try things and be creative. I think the town could do more to promote the amazing arts scene we have here but in the meantime there are some incredible places and things going on – all just 45 minutes and a beautiful drive away from Calgary.

Q: Do you have any upcoming projects or shows you would like to share?
A: We are having an exhibition with some other artists who work out of our studio at the Leighton Centre. The opening is on September 27 from 1-3 and from 10-5pm there will be demonstrations of artists making their work here at the studio. I hope you can make it out that day!
