The Workhouse Arts Center (WAF) is proud to announce a call for entries for its 1st Annual Workhouse Glass National Exhibition 2015.

Maurine started the gallery in 1984 and has showcased several hundred exhibitions of contemporary glass sculpture, ceramics, metal and fiber by internationally known artists, including Harvey K. Littleton, Dale Chihuly, Albert Paley, and Rudy Autio.
Maurine’s interest in glass is a lifetime affair. As the daughter of Harvey K. Littleton, Maurine was exposed to the world of art at a very early age. She studied art at the University of Wisconsin, University of Michigan, the Interlochen Arts Academy, and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam.
Subsequently, Maurine has served as a juror, judge, and lecturer in many events across the United States. She has authored exhibition catalogues and curated museum exhibitions.
