2018 ArtsFest Featured Artists: Jim and Tess Dirks!

From Jim Dirk’s childhood in in the small wheat growing town of Othello, Washington and the Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland, he has been making things. Encouraged by his high school art teacher, he explored all mediums. In high school and in college he spent much of his time creating pottery and ended up as the teaching assistant for his college class. That’s when he realized he could teach! When introduced to Stained Glass, he knew immediately that this was what “fit” his artistic sensibilities. He opened his business in Stuart in 1982, Stuart Stained Glass, and along with his wife, Tess and son Jonathan, they teach, mentor, design and create new style art glass they call “Art Dirko” as well as more traditional glass which can be both leaded and etched.
