This is part 2 of a special 2-part episode featuring Olivia Vavroch, a Portland-based artist who works with a variety of media, including stained glass. She also teaches art classes and sings with The Purple Herons, as well as doing a duet with me in the studio!
This episode was intended to be an hour long, but we had such a good conversation that it takes two episodes to cover it. We talk about art, technology, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and much more, including asking for your help in recovering a stolen piece of stained glass art.
The Story of the Missing Glass
Olivia created a special piece commissioned by a friend of hers for a newly-married couple that’s going through a lot of hardship. But they never saw the finished artwork because it was stolen from their doorstep shortly after it was delivered! We are asking for your help to spread the word about this story along with photos of the finished piece (below) in an effort to help it find its way home. If you have any information about this piece, please email me and I will pass it along to Olivia.
