With over 6,000 square feet of open space, Third Degree Glass Factory houses two distinct art galleries. The East Gallery displays the work of local artists who work across a variety of mediums such as photography, painting, fiber, printmaking, and sculpture. Discover the work of up-and-coming local artists every month at our Third Friday events when we unveil installations.

The Hot Shop Gallery takes its name from the adjacent Hot Shop studio, where Third Degree's resident glassblowing artists work with glass heated to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit to create the incredible works of art that visitors see on display. Works for sale in the Hot Shop Gallery are created by Third Degree resident artists in the Hot Shop Studio. The gallery is separated from the studio by a one-of-a-kind glass viewing wall that allows visitors to watch the glassblowing artists at work as they shop.

"Marshland" by Marlene DiFiori Locke

Synthetic materials and current technologies play a big part in my art production. My ongoing art is a Marshland Series, Eddy (small whirlwinds) Series and Zoomer Series. No matter what I am using to make art (paint, ink, digital technology, graphite, plaster...), my thoughts are about movement, depth and chance. In 2011, I was on television. Andy Banker from Fox 2 News in the Morning interviewed me about my Eddy Series. At Indiana University, I took over 60 hours of Fine Arts. I have been in over 50 exhibits, and my work is included in corporate, university and private collections. Check out my web page at
