A local artist who utilizes glass and heat to make his vibrant crafts is currently being highlighted at the Hillsboro library.
Originally from Raleigh, N.C., Scott Gallimore came to the Hillsboro area around 2010. While visiting Wilmington, he stopped by the South Street Gallery and spoke with the owner, John Schum. From there he was inspired to take classes at the gallery. He started that journey in late June of 2016.
Gallimore’s craft is focused on the fused-glass technique, which he said allows for an artistic expression he enjoys. He described the process, saying that through intricate glass-cutting and heat-fusing, a picture gradually appears.
Some of those pictures currently on display at the library include a dog, a tree, the Eiffel Tower, and a horse.
