Waddell Art Gallery at NOVA Loudoun

Tom Veirs
Recent Work, Glass Art
February 19 - March 16, 2007

Tom became acquainted with glass blowing as a young boy while living in Ohio and occasionally day tripping with his parents to different glass houses in Ohio, West Virginia and New York. Years later, while visiting an art show with his wife his interests were re-awakened.
After several years of classes and renting time at a local studio he was asked to teach beginning and intermediate level classes on weekends. Now that Tom has retired from his full time environmental career he has purchased and renovated an older building near Warrenton, Virginia for his own studio, gallery and teaching facility.

Tom has served on the board of the National Capital Area Glass Guild. His work is found in a number of galleries around Virginia, Maryland and the District. Tom had work placed in the oldest yacht club in Ireland and was recently commissioned to make replacement inserts for a nineteen hundreds vase currently in the White House. Work was also requested to provide his work for the Renwick Gallery fundraiser.
