Ebanks wins 2nd Place at GATHERING: Contemporary Glass from the Heartland, with one of his recent granularé blown-glass sculptures: Luminous Form: Pink Champagne & Lace. Gathering is a juried exhibit showcasing the best of emerging and established glass artists from Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Wisconsin—the heartland of America. This year’s exhibition includes 63 works of art by 31 artists. Various glass techniques are represented: cast, laminated, blown, etched, engraved, neon, mosaic, fused, kiln-formed, lampworked and glass in mixed media.

The artist was unable to attend the opening, but responded to his award:

“Thanks to the juror(s) for this honor. The Indiana Glass Arts Alliance does essential work to promote local glass artists and exhibits of this nature need all our support and subscription. Their decision to expand the field and open the Annual IGAA Exhibit to the region was one of foresight and courage. I applaud this move, especially as it keeps connected those of us that got our start in glass in the heartland of America… no matter where we are in the world today. I look forward to applying to many more ‘Gatherings’ in the future.”
