Verglas Media is heading to ArtSpring. We'll be at Cottrill's Opera house with spherical NASA movies packed full of local landscapes, and also at the Silent Auction with our submission "Snowflake."
"ArtSpring promotes and cultivates the arts in public life and presents a Memorial Day weekend festival of the arts in the highlands of Tucker County, WV."
Tucker County Arts Festival May 23-26, 2014
"ArtSpring was founded in 2011 when gallery owners, artists and musicians of Tucker County came together with a vision to connect and promote its rich and varied arts communities. From such was born the ArtSpring festival, a Memorial-Day-Weekend tour of Tucker County: an opportunity for visitors and residents alike to see the arts communities unite in a collective effort to show just how dynamic and extensive the presence of the arts are in our county."
VERGLAS MEDIA is proud to present two of NASA's spherical movies in the second floor of the Cottrill's Opera House. We'll have shows Friday, Saturday and Sunday, early evening. Water Falls and Loop were both filmed and edited by local filmmaker Victoria Weeks, and so our region's striking landscape plays a starring role alongside the high-tech NASA imagery.
The second floor of the Opera house has gone through a transformation, thanks to many local volunteers. In the true spirit of restoration, we are excited to bring in the first projector in over 40 years and, with a nod to the origins of Science On a Sphere - a painted weather balloon to work as the spherical screen! Check it out, there's nothing like it in West Virginia!

Snowflake (a.k.a. Powder)
This is an actual snowflake from Tucker County! It's a complicated image capture with some fancy post processing, but this is a photograph of real snow crystal! Here you can see both the essence and detail of a single crystal, magnified many times. If you like skiing or sledding on fresh powder, just know that this is what it looks like!
If you really love this print and miss out on the auction but you want one for your wall, just contact us!
