Carlyn Receiving the Award

“I spent a large part of my career traveling and working with glass artists all over the world, and the common theme I observed is how glassblowing can spark excitement and imagination for everyone. At Dallas Glass Art, our mission is to share this creativity, and we are so lucky to have such a supportive community here in DFW. I’d like to thank Pamala Riddle for nominating us this year, and of course Business Council for the Arts for recognizing our efforts. But more than anything, I’d like to thank the community here in this room for sharing your creativity and imagination with us. Thank you again for making this all possible” – Carlyn Ray

We are so honored to have received this award amongst such leaders in the community.  This has been both humbling and inspirational.

Thank you Business Council for the Arts.

Kyle and Carlyn with the Obelisk Award
