Local Art and Art Kits at Passion for Glass

Passion For Glass is a local art gallery and studio that specializes in showcasing the latest in paintings, sculptures, and unique jewelry.

Open in 2012, Passion For Glass is run by Anna Bilek, who is internationally renowned for her work, and has a signature style using murrini glass (as pictured above).


When you walk into Passion for Glass’s gallery space, you will find that most of their gallery items are from Albertan artists, as Anna is dedicated to supporting and building up others in her community. Each item in the collection is unique, and is recommended to be seen in person to fully appreciate the intricate details. 

They are also a distributor of Bulls-eye Glass, with a selection pieces in a variety of colours and sizes. If you are looking for custom jewelry or glass pieces, you can contact Anna herself to find the next perfect piece.

Currently they are offering take home glass kits, which can be made into coasters or small plates, and are a great option for a family art night perfect for adults and kids. 

Classes will be starting back up in August with limited capacity and all skill levels welcome. Check their website out for more information.
