Many of you will remember our stories on Bill Hess. He’s making quite a name since our two original stories over a year ago. Here’s some of what Bil’s doing and upcoming shows. His work is excellent!

A cool new art show called ARTIVISM has opened at McGuffey Art Center in Charlottesville. The show highlights “the unique power of artists to challenge us and to awaken us all to the importance of green building and the preservation of our natural world, while at the same time reminding us of our own abilities to affect real change.” The show is a partial benefit for the Charlottesville Waldorf School. See for more info (the quote is from their website).

Bill says he’s proud to be a part of this project with a hanging sculptural installation using fused bottle glass (in shapes of leaves), a tree branch, and actual tree leaves.

The opening reception was held this past Friday. The show will be up for the month of the November.

Another upcoming event:

“A HANDMADE SEASON”– an invitational show at the Artisan’s Center of Virginia (in Waynesboro). The dates are November 23- December 31. For more information about the Center see

Bill’s work was recently accepted into a nice boutique in Atlanta called “Eco-Bella” see
