Mermaid's tears! Beach jewels! Sea Glass!

Whatever the name, people have been collecting these fascinating pieces of washed up treasure for centuries all over the world, but most specifically in Norwalk, CT.  With its long industrious and recreational past, find out why Norwalk is a choice sea glass location in Alyssa Shapiro's new lecture: Sea Glass: History and Mystery.  Ever wonder where the glass comes from and how to tell its age? Ms. Shapiro has the answers. She will also discuss color varieties and their degree of rarity as well has how plastic, recycling and environmental concerns are all making sea glass a fast, disappearing find. The evening will conclude with light refreshments and the gift shop will be open, where Ms. Shapiro is featured as Artist of the Month for July and August.

Alyssa Shapiro, a Norwalk resident and obsessive beachcomber, has collected about 200 pounds of glass to date from the Connecticut shoreline. Inspired by the color and beauty of weathered glass, she makes photographic images and compositions.  Her Tidings Sea Glass Designs cards, shadow boxes and art frames have been featured at the Rowayton Art Center, Museum gift shops in Greenwich and Fairfield, CT. She is also an exhibiting artist at the Rowayton Art Center. Please check Facebook page Tidings Sea Glass Design for updates and tutorials about sea glass.
