CGS collaborates with Buckenham Galleries for summer exhibition
The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) is extending its reach across the country in 2023 with new events and exhibitions. The first of these initiatives is the opportunity for CGS members to exhibit at the Buckenham Galleries in Southwold, Suffolk.
Situated in the heart of the seaside town of Southwold, the Buckenham Galleries is an independent fine art gallery and one of East Anglia’s leading contemporary art spaces. CGS is excited to be working with the gallery for the first time to present its ‘Sumptuous Summer’ exhibition, from 1 June to 15 July 2023.
The exhibition, which is open to all CGS members, will celebrate the warmth and sensuous pleasure of a Sumptuous Summer. The brief offers artists the opportunity to explore anything that relates to that glorious season, which extends from the June solstice through to the September equinox.
Exhibiting a wide range of contemporary glass art, the show will feature a mix of wall pieces as well as plinth-based work. All the work will be for sale at a wide range of prices, so there will be something for everyone.
From the applicants, 15 artists will be chosen to take part in the show. Up to three pieces can be submitted per artist. The selection panel includes the gallery owners and internationally renowned glass artist, David Reekie, whose studio is in nearby Norfolk.
There will be a preview afternoon on Saturday 3 June at 2pm, enabling visitors to see the array of glorious glass, meet the artists and find out more about their work and techniques.
The application deadline is Sunday 12 March 2023 at 5pm.
