Meet the Artist: Monica Glasscock

Master framer & sculptor, with a passion for supporting artisans.


MY CAREER IN THE ART WORLD BEGAN 37 YEARS AGO, AS A PROFESSIONAL PICTURE FRAMER AND GALLERY MANAGER, MY WHOLE FOCUS IS THE PRESENTATION, PRESERVATION, AND PROMOTION OF ART IN ALL FORMS. FRAMING IS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT AND THIS ALSO HOLDS TRUE TO THE WORK I CREATE MYSELF. MY WORK IS MOSTLY COLLAGE ASSEMBLAGE ALTHOUGH I OFTEN ATTEMPT OTHER MEDIUMS, WHICH IN THE END BECOME A PART OF MY ASSEMBLAGE PROCESS. I LOVE LEARNING NEW TECHNIQUES, BY BEING INSPIRED AND INCORPORATING THE WORK OF OTHER ARTIST’S.

AN ARMY BRAT BORN IN TEHRAN, IRAN WHILE MY FATHER WAS STATIONED AT THE EMBASSY IN THE MID 60’S AND LIVING IN GERMANY A COUPLE OF TIMES GAVE ME THE APPRECIATION OF CULTURE AND DESIGN IN MANY DIFFERENT FORMS. THE MILITARY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF MY LIFE AND AFTER RETIRING MY HUSBAND BROUGHT ME HERE TO NORTHEAST OHIO WHERE I HAVE FOUND MY HOME. AS A RELATIVE NEWCOMER TO THE AREA WITH ELEVEN YEARS UNDER MY BELT, THE LAST SIX I HAVE BEEN MANAGING ARTISAN’ CORNER GALLERY IN NEWBURY.

ARTISANS’ CURRENTLY FEATURES THE WORK OF NEARLY A HUNDRED LOCAL ARTISTS IN A WIDE VARIETY OF MEDIUMS AND WHERE I PROVIDE CUSTOM PICTURE FRAMING WITH QUALITY AND CREATIVE DESIGN. THE GALLERY HAS HAD MANY CHANGES IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS IN LOOSING BOTH CHUCK AND BARBARA GATES, WHO’S VISION BROUGHT THE GALLERY TO EXISTENCE, THE PANDEMIC, AND NOW THE CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP. WITH FAITH FROM A DEAR FRIEND TO BACK MY EFFORTS TO CONTINUE TO GROW AND PROSPER THE GALLERY IS THE GO TO PLACE FOR ART IN GEAUGA COUNTY.

STOP BY AND SEE FOR YOURSELF HOW BEAUTIFUL A PLACE IT IS. LOCATED IN THE NEWBURY CENTER PLAZA AT THE CORNER OF SR87 AND AUBURN ROAD AND SANDWICHED IN BETWEEN ZEPPE’S TAVERN AND SUBWAY (YES, IT ALWAYS SMELLS LIKE PIZZA AND FRESH BAKED BREAD) YOU CAN FEED YOUR SOUL WITH ART AND JUST TWO DOORS DOWN IS THE AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS DS CAKES AND SWEETS CAFÉ IT MAKES THE PERFECT DAY TRIP WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY. OPEN TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY FROM 10:00 AM TO 4:00 PM VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT www.artisanscornergallery.com FOR A SNIPPET OF OUR OFFERINGS AND PLAN YOUR TRIP.

“EVER CHANGING, EVER GROWING, ART IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ESCAPE FROM EVERYDAY LIFE, WHETHER YOU CREATE IT OR SIMPLY APPRECIATE IT” ~ M.E. GLASSCOCK
