Exhibition for Artist in Residence: Mert Ungor
Join us in celebrating WSG's first Artist in Residence, Mert Ungor. This solo exhibition includes a body of work he has created in our studios over the past several months. Mert has also been teaching in our studios sharing his venetion style techniques with our advanced students. 
Come to raise a glass to our visiting artist Mert Ungor and sample artisan hard cider from Virtue Cider in Fennville.
Mert is from Antalya, Turkey where he grew up on the Mediterranean coast. While working in metal and casting at the Glass Furnace in Istanbul, he was discovered by Chad Holliday, Associate Professor of Art at WTAMU. He encouraged the young artist to come to the United States and work on his MFA. 
Mert recently completed a Master's degree in glass from West Texas A & M University. He has interned at the prestigious Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Wa. where he worked with Maestro Lino Tagliapietra, and has recently completed a residency at the Glass Art Kalamazoo studio, where he had a solo exhibition.
