Art In Cozumel:  Greg Dietrich

Art in Cozumel…We invited Greg Dietrich – owner of Galeria Azul to write a monthly art column for the readers of Cozumel 4 You. Greg accepted and kindly offered the services of his wife, Liliana Macotela, who is also an artist, as well. This way you get a perspective of Art in Cozumel from two different people, cultures, and genders.

Glass Blower Reality Competition on Netflix

Hey everyone…I sometimes write about art happenings here on the island, but today I am going take you somewhere else. Netflix has created a reality show program about glass blowing called “Blown Away”

It is a competition between 10 glassblowers to create objects from the theme that the organizers suggest.

 I personally know 2 of the contestants (Janusz and Deborah) and one of the judges (Katherine Gray). I have known these people for 25-30 years. 

The 10 – episode program will give you a bit of insight into the world of glassblowing, a world that I have been a part of for almost 30 years.

As it is a reality show, it is all a bit glossed over and they don’t explain as much as I would have liked them to, but it is an entertaining show so I thought I would share it with the Cozumel public. I know they also have dubbed versions in Spanish, as well as a couple other languages, or with subtitles. 

I hope you enjoy the show!

“Reality show” de competencia en vidrio soplado en Netflix

Hola a todos… en ocasiones escribo acerca de los eventos de arte que se realizan en la Isla, pero hoy los llevaré a otro sitio. Netflix ha creado un programa sobre vidrio soplado llamado “Blown Away”   

Este es una competencia de 10 sopladores de vidrio en la cual deben crear objetos con base en los temas sugeridos por los organizadores.

El programa de 10 episodios les ayudará a entender el mundo del soplado de vidrio y del cual he formado parte durante casi 30 años.

En virtud de que se trata de una telerrealidad, pasan muchas cosas por alto y no explican todo lo que me hubiera gustado que explicaran, pero es un programa de entretenimiento por lo que consideré compartirlo con el público de Cozumel. Se que también tiene versiones dobladas al español y otros idiomas o con subtítulos.

¡Espero disfruten el programa!
