When I see glass art in a gallery in the area I live in I can’t help but be happy and excited, so when I was told that Jaime Guerrero was showing at Avenue 50 Studio I had to go over and check it out. There stood three separate pieces, life size, blown of glass depicting Chicano men and I was smitten. Plus Avenue 50 Studio is in my neighborhood and an important part of the art collective that makes up NELAart. But Jaime is more than just a glass artist. He teaches in kids in South LA glass blowing. Go to his web site and check out more about him. There are videos too. Since I’ve recently put a hot shop in my studio seeing his work makes me appreciate the talent and skillset this artist possesses.
