‘A Postcard From…’ exhibition launched

The CGS is running a series of selling exhibitions to showcase its members’ talents in contemporary glass and enable you to purchase directly from the makers. The latest show is ‘A Postcard From…’, a theme chosen by glass collector and enthusiast Alan J Poole.  This upbeat theme has been interpreted by over 50 glass artists in their individual styles.

Through these difficult times, our minds sometimes wander to happy days, holidays and gatherings, or just places we love to visit. So, take your minds off to distant shores and view inspired, postcard-size work by CGS members

Our Chair, Sue, and Administrator, Pam, are holding a launch evening on Saturday 6 March at 6pm (UK time) to guide you through the gallery of images with their usual humour and enthusiasm. Each piece will be highlighted in turn and some will be presented by the artists themselves, providing an overview of their artworks. The launch evening is restricted so please email Pam if you (and your friends) would like to register to attend on admin@cgs.org.uk .

The show is now open for all to view so you have an opportunity to browse (and buy!) all these diverse contemporary glass art pieces directly from the artists. They are all conveniently postcard-sized and available at affordable prices (£50, £100 or £150). Some have already been sold so take a look now before you miss out!
