Featured Installation in the New Expansion at Chelsea Community Hospital

Chelsea Community Hospital recently completed a multimillion dollar expansion started in 2011. As part of the new expansion, the new space is filled with carefully selected artwork. Members of the hospital’s art council, which is composed of a group of community members, used an outdoor, nature theme when selecting pieces used to decorate the facility.

As part of that theme, Annette Baron was commissioned to create a piece, shown here at the studio and titled Succulent, which is now on permanent display in the Atrium, the new main entrance to the hospital. You can visit it and all the other artwork in person at Chelsea Community Hospital, at 775 S. Main Street, Chelsea MI 48118.

Baron Glassworks Fires Up Local Studio Art Scene

Graham Gerdes from Community High School in Ann Arbor stopped in to the glass studio a few weeks ago, and had this to say about it:

Hot, dangerous, delicate and beautiful.  At Baron Glassworks in Ypsilanti, MI, local artists are fusing together their ideas and inspirations to form functional, and aesthetic art.

Annette Baron, sole proprietor and founder of Baron Glassworks, has been blowing glass for 23 years. “I have had the studio for 16 years. It was 1997, and then I lit the furnace Nov. 24 1998. This furnace has been on ever since,” said Baron.

Annette does take younger students on an individually assessed basis: please contact the studio if you’re looking for a wonderfully engaging and creative outlet for your young artist.

Thanks for stopping by, Graham! profiles Annette!

Earlier this week, profiled our very own Annette Baron as part of the 12th Annual Art Walk.  In it, she shares her thoughts on the importance of Art Walk to thecommunity:

Why is Art Walk important to the community?
The Art Walk has become an essential part of the arts community in Washtenaw County. The entire community is welcome to discover and explore the vast range of art and art experiences that exist in our unique area.

Come see us at the studio this weekend for more insights and experience with glass!
