Apply now for CGS ‘Earth/Sea/Sky’ exhibition at London Glassblowing
Grab your chance to exhibit your glass art on the theme of ‘Earth/Sea/Sky’ in the prestigious gallery at London Glassblowing this July.
This event is part of a packed programme of events and exhibitions being held throughout 2022 to celebrate the Contemporary Glass Society’s (CGS) 25th anniversary and the UN-designated International Year of Glass.
As London Glassblowing is run by Peter Layton, one of the founding members of CGS, this a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with him on this exciting show.
One of the heartening consequences of the pandemic has been the bringing together of the UK-based glass community and artists in general. In recognition of this, the ‘Earth/Sea/Sky’ exhibition will focus on works created through various forms of collaboration. This collaboration may be between different artists, shown through using different techniques, or by creating in different materials.
Your ’Earth/Sea/Sky’ artwork should be a response to collaboration via one of the below:
- An artist combing different glass making techniques to create a new piece of glass work
- An artist collaborating with another CGS member who uses a different glass technique to create a joint piece of work
- An artist combining different materials or found objects to create a new piece of glass work where at least 50% is glass
- An artist collaborating with another artist from a different discipline to create a joint piece of work in different materials.
This is a selected show, curated by eminent glass artist, Cathryn Shilling. Applicants must be current members of the CGS. If you are not yet a member, you can see all the benefits available and join here.
Deadline for applications is 5pm (UK time) on Friday 25 February 2022.
The show will take place from 1-23 July 2022 at London Glassblowing Gallery, 62-66 Bermondsey St, London SE1 3UD, UK.
