Apply for CGS Sparkle glass exhibition at Frome gallery

Members of the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) are invited to submit glass work for the first CGS exhibition of 2024 – ‘Sparkle! A Spectrum of Contemporary Glass’ exhibition, taking place at Black Swan Arts in Frome, Somerset.

The exhibition will run from 19 January to 25 February 2024 in the centre’s Long Gallery. It is open to all CGS members at any stage of their career, but with an emphasis on CGS South West and Midlands members.

Celebrate the dazzling delight of glass in all its facets of light, colour and technique. The brief is as wide as you wish to make it and will be a true celebration of the diversity of contemporary glass. All work submitted must be for sale and both wall pieces and plinth-based work are accepted.

Artists can submit up to three pieces of work in one submission.  Although this is an open exhibition, it may be necessary to select only some of an artist’s pieces for inclusion in the final show, subject to the number of applications and the size and quantity of entries.

All work must comprise at least 50% glass and to have been made after January 2022 or made specifically for the exhibition.

A non-refundable administration fee of £25 will be charged per application.

Application deadline: 19 November 2023.

Black Swan Arts is at 2 Bridge Street, Frome, Somerset BA11 1BB.

If you would like to take part in the Sparkle exhibition, but are not yet a member of CGS, why not join now?
