Join the LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library in a system-wide celebration of Women’s History Month! Throughout the month of March, select branch locations will host works from local artists with various interpretations of this annual observance.

At the Bruce J. Host Northeast Branch Library, artist Kim Campbell will showcase a collection of her oceanic fused glass pieces honoring Women in Art.

Artist biography: Born in Memphis, TN, Kim found her love for art in the 5th grade; her classmates were always asking her to draw for them. She concentrated on portraits at first, with acrylics and pastels as her two mediums of choice. After getting her B.S. degree in Studio Art from Florida State, she became a graphic designer and started her own business, Graphic Visions, in 1993. She took more art classes at FSU after graduating, including painting, mosaics, and ceramics. At a teacher’s suggestion, she took a glass fusing class. Two years later, she was teaching that class and bought her own kiln. Today, Kim teaches fused glass classes in her hometown and participates in art shows all over Florida.

“I love the serenity of the ocean and the creatures living there. They are fascinating and are a work of art in themselves. I’ve been working with fused-glass for over a decade, and I’m still learning new techniques and applications with this form of art. I work with frit for texture, powders for formations, enamels for painting and backgrounds, and sometimes polymer clay for an added bonus creature. I like to experiment with the powders to create abstract coral you might see underwater. I rarely create two of the same scene, thus my art is changing all the time. I never get bored. Art has always been a part of who I am and my ‘happy place.’”
