Bedazzling glass exhibitions at Pyramid Gallery, York

Two exhibitions of glass by members of the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) are launching at the Pyramid Gallery in York, England.

The ‘Bedazzled – 25 Glass Makers Impress’ exhibition is a selected show featuring the work of 25 artists to mark the CGS’s 25-year anniversary.

CGS Chair, Susan Purser Hope, commented, “We invited our members to provide us with glasswork that dazzles us with colour, technique, sparkles and quality. The exhibition aims to show us why glass is such a precious material to work with. And there are also some elements of silver to bedazzle us and to commemorate our 25 years.”

The chosen artists are: Sarah L Brown, Tabitha Burrill, Julie Coakley, Catherine Dunstan, Shirley Eccles, Jianyong Guo, Crispian Heath, Vicky Higginson, Catherine Hough, Alison Jardine, Juliette Leperlier, Monette Larsen, Catherine Mahé, Tracy Nicholls, Ian Palfrey, Susan Purser Hope, Morag Reekie, Helen Restorick, Cathryn Shilling, Elizabeth Sinková, Amy Skachill Burke, Helen Slater Stokes, Pippa Stacey and Liz Pearson, Nancy Sutcliffe, and Bethan Yates.

Pyramid Gallery owner Terry Brett was one of the panel who decided on the exhibits. He said, ‘The CGS is impressively well organised and able to attract submissions from a huge range of glass makers and artists. Between us, we have selected 25 individuals, many of whom are new to the gallery, but also several who we have worked with before. It will be an exciting and stimulating show that will certainly impress our customers and glass collectors.”

Alongside this show is a fun exhibition of small works submitted by over 50 CGS members. This display is called ‘Razzle Dazzle: Five x Five’, with pieces measuring no more than five inches square and for sale at prices to suit all budgets.

Both exhibitions are on from 10 September to 30 October 2022 at The Pyramid Gallery, 43 Stonegate, York YO1 8AW, England. https://www.pyramidgallery.com
