Larry VerRan created his first stained glass guitar in the spring to sell at A Work of Art Gallery & Gifts in Downtown Bristol, an artist cooperative of which he is a member. Within two weeks, the guitar sold in the gallery, and then a gentleman in Texas saw the first guitar on the gallery’s Facebook page. He commissioned VerRan to make his second guitar that incorporated the Texas flag. Fifty hours, several wooden reinforcements, and many feet of aluminum reflective tape later, he shipped the guitar to Texas to complete his second sale of the guitars. VerRan has now completed a third guitar that is for sale in the gallery in preparation for Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, and he doesn’t plan to stop creating them, each a little different than the previous. To see the guitar and VerRan's other stained glass work, visit him during his Meet-the-Artist Reception on October 29 from 1pm-4pm at A Work of Art Gallery & Gifts.
