"Sketches on Glass"
Armelle is an Oakland based painter whose canvas is often glass. By painting, etching and silk-screening on separate layers of glass and then fusing them together, she is able to create depth and perspective to achieve movement within a piece, allowing it to play with the environment and its lighting. Come see these stunning works in person.

"I was born in Brest, Bretagne in France. I studied Art according to environment and architecture in Paris and received a bachelor’s degree with an emphasis on fresco. At the age of twenty-one, I began the first of many apprenticeships at renowned stained-glass studios in France, Canada, Mexico and The United States. For over Twenty-Five Years I have been a part of various teams working on restoring monumental Stained-Glass Pieces and managed projects such as St. Thomas church In New York and Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. For the past twenty years. I have been the lead artist, art director and driving force of the “Remembered Light, Glass fragments from WW2” project. This ensemble of 25 pieces was created using shards collected in Europe in 1944. From These fragments, I was able to piece together a visual history of the war that is emotionally compelling and poignant. Since January 2007, I am the curator of the remembered light travelling exhibition that has being displayed in San Francisco, Tacoma, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Rochester and in Salt Lake City. The project will be displayed as a Special exhibit at the National WW2 museum in New Orleans from 11/21/19 to 4/26/20."
