Verify out Craig Ex at the WEEDS Homegrown Artshow final week at 1350 William St. in East Vancouver. Featuring a ton of expertly-produced glass, visual art, and glass-blowing demos, it was a trippy feast for the senses- and did I mention there was a dab bar, as well?

Not only was the Homegrown Artshow a celebration of art and glass, it also focused on providing back to the neighborhood and assisting their personal. That is the explanation why it was referred to as “homegrown”- significantly of the visual art on show was produced by WEEDS’ personal talented in-residence group, and the glass pieces had been produced by regional legends like Redbeard Glass, Gibsons Glass, and Skullfish Glass– with proceeds from the Dab Bar becoming donated to We Care, Vancouver.

A smokeable Kool Help Man glass piece.

Carol and Don, the owners of WEEDS, stated:

“We’re just possessing a wonderful celebration of all our men and women that perform so tough for us and are wonderful artists themselves. Then we brought in good friends from the glass culture like Redbeard, Skullfish, and GIbsons… and so we have an awesome quantity of wicked glass right here.”

Wicked glass, certainly. If the only glass you have ever noticed are the normal pipes and bongs at your regional headshop, your thoughts would be blown to see the definitely astounding items that these glass artists can come up with. From well-known characters like Gumby and the Kool Help Man to chickens cooking bacon and eggs- all painstakingly produced from glass and prepared for you to pack a bowl and take a toke.

Subsequent, Craig goes about the back to verify out the reside glassblowing demos to see how they do what they do and he watches the glass artists kick the heat up a couple notches as they forge art in the fire.

Fire in the hole!

Craig also chatted to the glass artist identified as Redbeard, who told him:

“WEEDS is often supporting artists and I just want to give a shout out to WEEDS. Thanks guys, you guys rock!”

Craig also ran into some good friends who came out to help the regional neighborhood like Opus 420 and Dori Dempster from The Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary. Dori talks about the movement to Save Vancouver’s Dispensaries, which is fighting to preserve the dispensaries open to supply Canadians with the access they deserve.
