Collaborations exhibition features 10 pairs of glass artists

Twenty of the UK’s leading glass artists have come together to make new and exciting glasswork to be featured in an exhibition called ‘Collaborations’ at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

The event is part of the International Festival of Glass 2022 and runs from 20 August to 23 October 2022, with a Private View on 23 August. The Private View opens at 5pm, with speeches at 6.15pm.

‘Collaborations’ showcases the work of a determined cross-section of the art glass community, who place glass at the heart of their practice. All have an international standing in their specialist areas, and some have played important roles in glass education. The exhibition seeks to push the boundaries in glassmaking, and examines what glass artists can do when working with one another collaboratively. Each piece has been made specifically for the exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

The collaborators are:

  1. Elliot Walker & Keith Cummings
  2. Jon Lewis & Karen Browning
  3. Stephen Foster & Georgia Redpath
  4. Allister Malcolm & Vanessa Cutler
  5. Jeff Zimmer & Anne Petters
  6. Max Jacquard & Kirsty Brooks
  7. Ian Chadwick & Kirsteen Aubrey
  8. Chris Day & Grace Ayson
  9. Angela Thwaites & Elizabeth Waugh McManus
  10. Max Stewart & Carrie Fertig


Wolverhampton Art Gallery is at Lichfield Street, Wolverhampton WV1 1DU, UK. Website:
