As part of Carbondale’s First Friday, Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities presents the work of photographer Teri Havens and glass artist Charlie Pace.

Havens is a photojournalist and portrait photographer who has completed freelance assignments for national publications including the Detroit News and The New York Times and has exhibited in shows in Chicago, Detroit and Austin. Her work in the CCAH show features people in and around the Roaring Fork Valley. She is now working on “Slab City, the Last Free Place,” a photo essay about a trailer park community in the Mojave Desert.

Pace, who was born in Carbondale, has worked with many of Aspen’s glass galleries and taught himself the basics of flame-working by reading books and experimenting with glass.

In the summer of 2000, he was accepted to the famous Pilchuck Glass School in Washington and studied with Cesare Toffolo, an Italian maestro. His work is primarily sculptural ” nature and the physics of the universe are his primary inspirations.

The show’s opening is from 6-8 p.m. today and will be on display through September. Call 963-1680 for more information.
