Apply now for CGS ‘Glorious Glass’ exhibition, Torquay

Throughout 2022 the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) has been marking its 25th anniversary – and the UN-designated International Year of Glass – with lots of exciting events and exhibitions across the country. All members are invited to take part in the grand finale exhibition of this momentous year, ‘Glorious Glass’, which will be held at the Artizan Gallery, in Torquay, Devon.

This show is unselected and open to all CGS members, regardless of where they are in their career or where they are located. All work in the exhibition will be for sale.

The exhibition will take place from 26 November to 24 December 2022.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 19 September 2022.

CGS Chair, Susan Purser Hope, explains, “The aim of the ‘Glorious Glass’ exhibition is to demonstrate how utterly glorious and amazing contemporary glass is, so that everyone can appreciate and enjoy its magical colours, textures, use of light and variety of techniques, as well as discovering their own local glass artists. The work displayed will feature as wide a range of techniques as possible. Although South-Western-based CGS members are encouraged to enter, all CGS members are welcome to take part.

“We are delighted to be exhibiting for the first time with Julie and Jacob Brandon at Torbay’s Artizan Gallery, which is an independent fine art gallery dedicated to championing the work of local artists in the South West.”
