|Graduate touts Centre's glass-blowing program in national publication
RELEASED: June 6, 2002
DANVILLE, KY-Brook Forrest White Jr., a 1991 Centre graduate, is featured in the June issue of Southern Living. The glass blower talks about his work in an article that highlights Glassworks, a studio and art gallery in Louisville that specializes in glassmaking.
White explains the glass-blowing process and why he took that career route.
"I took a class at Centre College and fell in love with it," White said. "I was going to be a lawyer. I went to law school for six weeks. That was long enough."
White graduated from Centre with a bachelor of arts degree in government. He then attended the University of Kentucky College of Law. After leaving, he was a graduate fellow in art at Centre before becoming the resident glass artist at Glassworks.
White studied under internationally known artist Stephen Rolfe Powell, professor of art at Centre. White's work has been shown at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and at other galleries across the nation.
Glassworks is located at 815 West Market Street in Louisville. For more information, visit www.louisvilleglassworks.com.
The June issue of Southern Living also notes the 2002 Great American Brass Band Festival in its list of the best summer travel destinations. The festival, in its 13th year, will be held in Danville and on Centre's campus June 14-16.
