The Arkansas Studies Institute houses four art galleries, including a retail gallery, featuring the work of Arkansas artists and art related to the state. This post is part of a bi-weekly series featuring ASI gallery artists.

Ed Pennebaker


Ed Pennebaker makes all of the glass at Red Fern Glass, an individual art glass studio near Osage, Arkansas. In 2005, one of Pennebaker's works was installed in the Fred W. Smith Conference Center on the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences campus in Little Rock, Arkansas. Glass made by Pennebaker has been shown at SOFA Chicago by Function Art Gallery. His chandeliers were awarded the "Excellence in Lighting" award at the Philadelphia Furniture and Furnishings Show, and a Red/Amber/Smoke chandelier was chosen to exhibit in the 2001 Hsinchu International Glass Art Festival in Hsinchu, Taiwan. His work was chosen in 1993 for the White House Crafts Collection. He sells glass in major museum shops and galleries nationwide, including the Arkansas Studies Retail Gallery in Little Rock.
