Work by Birmingham glass artist Sam Cornman will be on display in the Samford University Art Gallery Feb. 4 through March 13.

He will also instruct Samford art students in hands-on workshops at Bear Creek Glass, where he is artist in residence.

Cornman, a graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology's School of American Crafts, has also studied at the Corning Museum of Glass Studio in New York State and the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. He moved to Alabama in 2004.

His blown-glass artworks are represented in collections in Germany, New York, Japan and Birmingham.

Cornman's Samford show is presented as part of the school's Visiting Visual Artist Series.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m., weekdays. The public is invited free of charge.
