Your right brain on glass
This February, the Oklahomans for Equality (OkEq) showcase and exhibit of local artists will feature amazing glass works by Robin Green Tilly in a show titled Your Right Brain On Glass. The show opens with a reception on Thursday, February 1, from 6-9 p.m. and will be on display at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center throughout the month.
Robin Green Tilly never “resists a call from the muse.” Described as a true renaissance woman, she is a warm fused glass artisan. She is a published author, and poet and has worked as a creative life coach, experienced public speaker, marketing expert, community volunteer and established glass artisan.
Tilly spent 20 years honing her marketing expertise first as an advertising executive, working in print, electronic and video mediums for major national and local clients. She moved from the business-to-business advertising and marketing sector and met the challenge of fundraising for Tulsa YWCA.
Ready for a new challenge, she left the traditional job environment to follow her passion and become a creative entrepreneur.
Passionate about art, Tilly is a recognized warm glass artisan with work appearing in galleries and invitational art shows. Her work ranges from jewelry to dinnerware, wall sconces to table lamps.
Tilly says anything is possible when she puts imagination to glass. She has been honored to be a part of Philbrook Festival of Trees, the Brady Craft Alliance show and Visionmakers. She has also sold her work in OkEq’s MOREcolor, Champagne and Chocolate and Oh, Tulsa!
Tilly was the featured artist for the 2016 Spokeasy fundraising benefit and was a part of the Tulsa Performing Arts Center’s 40th Anniversary Celebration with a 12-piece installation titled At the Center of Performing Arts.
Your Right Brain On Glass at Oklahomans for Equality will see her share the stage with singer/songwriter and musician Jim Tilly, who will be providing the musical experience during the show. The exhibit explores the power of the creative right brain to create calm and peace.
Today, artist Tilly lives with musician Tilly, who is an attorney in private practice. They both enjoy exploring creativity through music, singing, warm fused glass, writing, coaching and teaching.
The exhibit will be displayed the entire month of February with an opening reception on Thursday, February 1 from 6-9 p.m. at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center, 621 E. 4th Street in downtown Tulsa. There will be a door prize drawn of the artist's work at the opening reception.
