Apply to exhibit at the World of Glass

The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) is delighted to be collaborating again with The World of Glass to present a members-only exhibition this autumn. The show will take place in the museum’s recently upgraded exhibition space.

The World of Glass is located in St Helens in the north-west of England and the exhibition is open to all CGS members at any stage of their careers, but with a special emphasis on those artists located in the North. If you are not yet a member and would like to apply for this opportunity, why not join here?

The exhibition will run from Saturday 30 September to Friday 17 November 2023.

The World of Glass is dedicated to the local history of the Merseyside area, seen primarily through the lens of the glass industry. It was founded in 2000 and presents an amalgamation of the former Pilkington Glass and St Helens Borough Council collections. The purpose-built premises was constructed adjacent to the Pilkington’s glassworks and the stretch of the St Helens Canal known as the ‘Hotties’. There are glassblowing demonstrations and visitors can see the Victorian furnace and tunnels built in 1887 by William Windle Pilkington.

There is no theme to the CGS exhibition, but it will celebrate the diversity of contemporary glass and a broad range of techniques. All work submitted must be for sale. Wall pieces and plinth-based work are welcome.

Artists can submit up to three pieces of work for consideration. The museum will select the artworks to be included in the exhibition.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday 18 August.
