UPDATE: Guest speaker Tim Carey from Judson Studios has been postponed to a later date. Stay tuned for new date.
The Rotary Club of South Pasadena’s lunchtime meeting in Oneonta Congregational Church on January 16 will present artist Tim Carey from Judson Stained Glass Studio as guest speaker.
The event will be held in the church’s Tower Room beginning at noon.
Carey was trained in traditional drawing and painting at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and spent the first seven years of his career as a figurative oil painter and muralist.
He discovered stained glass and specifically glass painting on a tour of The Judson Studios in Los Angeles in 2003 and was immediately hooked. Carey is now the creative director at Judson Studios, working with technology to develop efficiencies within the traditional system, as well as exploring contemporary glass techniques and methods.
In 2016, Carey helped open the studios’ second location in the Ostrich Farm area of South Pasadena. He recently completed a 3,400 square foot fused glass window for the Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas. After designing the piece in 2014 and realizing it couldn’t be done solely with traditional methods, Carey sought out Narcissus Quagliata and his “painting with light” fusing technique. Together they designed a custom fabrication process, and completed the piece in February of 2017. Tim has devoted his work full time to exploring fused glass as an image making material. It’s ability to convey movement, transparency and luminosity are the primary features that Carey wishes to delve deeper into in his work going forward.
The Rotary Club invites members of the public to attend this luncheon that starts at 12 o’clock. Lunch and social are from noon to 12:30 p.m., club business is from 12:30 to 1, followed by the half hour presentation from Carey, which includes a PowerPoint and a Q & A with the audience.
Oneonta Congregational Church is located at 1515 Garfield Avenue in South Pasadena. From the large parking lot on Garfield near the corner of Oak Street, guests will be able to easily see the large Rotary sign outside the Tower Room.
