Gathered Glassblowing Studio, downtown Toledo’s premier studio gallery, is proud to showcase Robin Okun as a Featured Artist in their ongoing series, Loop Nights at Gathered. Gathered will host an opening and public reception to be held on July 18th, 2019 in conjunction with The Arts Commission Art Loop. As part of Gathered’s Featured Artist Series, Okun will be displaying a series of paintings collectively grouped as Strength in Vulnerability. Strength in Vulnerability utilizes bold color and linear figures to discuss issues concerning the female gaze, and the empowerment found in empathy, compassion and the feminine form. Originally from Toledo OH, Okun now resides in Boston MA and exhibits throughout the United States, and Strength in Vulnerability represents Okun’s first significant collective showing of works in the Toledo area in over two years. 

A opening reception with refreshments will occur from 6-9pm, with music by the Jason Quick Trio. 

Gathered will be featuring a hot-sculpted glass demonstration by Chris DeMuro, along with printmaking demonstrations by their second-floor resident letterpress studio, The Black Iron Press.
