Williams Gallery

The Eli Zilke Collaborative presents “Collaborative Nature” in our Robert Williams Gallery. Eli runs the studios at Water Street Glassworks in Benton Harbor, Michigan. He has designed this show with a number of very talented glass artists from the immediate area and beyond. The show speaks to the collaborative nature of how glass is made. Lynne Clayton, Executive Director of Water Street Glassworks, is among the artists who will exhibit work in the show.

In addition to the pieces which will be shown, there will also be an interactive piece which visitors can have a hand in creating. The show will conclude with a demonstration event on Friday, November 2nd hosted at Water Street Glassworks where this piece will be completed and then brought back to the Box Factory to be displayed for the final week of the exhibition.
