burbank arts festStained-glass artist one of 80 participants in Downtown Burbank's Fine Arts Festival this weekend. A glimmer of colored glass caught Chip Worsinger's attention in the 1960s. As an inspector for an insurance company, one of his stops was at a glass studio. Fascinated, Worsinger started asking questions about the shop owner's craft, and the proprietor was nice enough to send him home with a box of tools and scraps of glass. About the same time, Worsinger discovered the Renaissance Pleasure Faire and was intrigued by the lifestyle of the artists who sold items there.

From the ancient Egyptians and Romans on through to modern-day artists, the use of glass as an artistic medium has developed into a significant branch of the decorative arts. That discipline is being showcased at the Burbank Creative Arts Center Gallery in a solo exhibition of the work of Burbank artist Andy Gersh . Presented under the title "Glass: Contemporary Fusion," Gersh's show offers a fresh look at modern design as told through klin-formed, fused glass. The 100-piece exhibition, which evokes both a retro and contemporary feel inspired by color, architecture and nature, officially commenced Friday evening with a reception.

Jacqui Brown Chip Worsinger was a kid from back east with one of those boring things we call a day job. While inspecting a glass company on Pico Boulevard for an insurance company, he struck up a conversation with the owner who was working with stained glass. "I asked him a lot of questions and he was happy to answer them all," Worsinger said. "Back then there wasn't much stained glass being done except for repairs on church windows." The owner was so taken by Worsinger's fascination, he packed him off with a box of tools and scraps of glass.

TULLY TALK Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' basketball Coach Bryan Camacho has an inimitable ability to look at the bright side of things. If you put a glass of water in front of Camacho and ask him if it is half empty or half full, he is likely to tell you, although the glass might be half empty now, with hard work, discipline and dedication, the glass could easily work its way to being half full. Camacho makes Richard Simmons look like a pessimist.

Joyce Rudolph For those wanting to boost their confidence level, one Glendale resident suggests learning a craft. Jewelry and decoupage artist Marty Stevens-Heebner runs a business providing in-home crafting parties similar to the quilting bees of yesteryear. She brings all the supplies for making jewelry and other crafts and party guests sip beverages and nibble on goodies while learning to make beautiful things. The business' name, "Half the Sky," comes from the Chinese proverb "Women Hold Up Half the Sky."

It was a mess. Broken glass from the left-side window of the Glendale News-Press and Burbank Leader lay strewn about the inside of our building last week. Someone, for unknown reason or motivation, destroyed one of our panel windows. I gave my report to a patrol officer, making an unusual weekend commute from my Burbank home to see the damage. It's ugly. A gaping hole was below the papers' logos, and spider-web cracks of green glass crawled up the sides. I feel violated and angry.

Lolita Harper LOS ANGELES -- It had all the makings of a professional art exhibition: a harpist, framed and original artwork and dozens of admirers. The only thing missing was the wine, because these up-and-coming artists were far too young to drink. Burbank students Tiffany Colon, 14, and Michael Nalbanian, 12, are artists whose winning poster entries were honored Tuesday at "A Glass Half Full: Children's Perspectives on Water," at the Metropolitan Water District in downtown Los Angeles.
