Join us at Piedmont Craftsmen’s Gallery Tuesday, June 28th at 6PM for
A Frit Glass Painting Demo with Betti Pettinati-Longinotti.
What is Frit? Frit is ground glass that comes in a variety of gradients- from fine powders to coarse granules- which are mixed with a medium and applied directly on glass. Betti Pettanati-Longinotti will show us how she paints on glass using frit to create glittering, textured images before fusing the work in a kiln.
Betti Pettinati-Longinotti is an artist based in Winston-Salem, NC known for working in drawing, painting, stained & fused glass, and works in a combination of these techniques. Examples of her work can be seen in our summer theme exhibit “Are we There Yet?”, on view through July 30th.
Betti’s work has been shown nationally, & internationally. Her spirituality is evident within the portfolio of her inspired work. She has had commissions & collaborations in all facets of Architectural glass: ecclesiastical, commercial, public art and residential. As an educator, Betti has led numerous stained glass apprenticeship workshops with student collaborations towards site specific, public art, and architectural installations.
Betti received a BFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art; an MA from the University of the Arts/ Philadelphia, in Art Education with a studio major in Glass; and an MFA in Visual Arts from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. She’s been a Piedmont Craftsmen Exhibiting Member since 2013.
