Plainville resident Beata Trefon created the artwork on the cover of this week's iTOWNS. Trefon is a member of the Art League of Plainville, Art League of New Britain and Polish Society of Artists. After studying ceramics and glass at the Wroclaw Academy of Fine Arts in Poland, Beata began creating original pieces of art using various techniques and methods of processing glass in order to create her own style of work. "Glass is a unique material," she says. "I am just the arranger of it and light finishes the work." She says her her work is "a search of the contrasts between light and darkness - it is an exploration of the influence of color and form, helping to create mood and an expression of spirit."
