Stained glass and jewelry artist, Nell McConahey of Spiral Studio will be the featured artist for the month of May at the Juneau Artists Gallery. Inspired by spring and a recent trip to the Gem Show in Tuscon, Arizona, Nell has created new works to show at the First Friday event on Friday, May 5 from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm.

Her new pieces will go fast so visitors are encouraged to come by early, chat with Nell and enjoy some good food at the Juneau Artists Gallery, located in the Senate Building, 175 South Franklin St. 

After taking a metalsmithing class in college, Nell began a long relationship with creating jewelry. It’s been her full-time job, along with stained and fused glass, for more than 18 years.

Juneau Artists Gallery will be open during the construction of Franklin Street.
