Open call: UCA Farnham to showcase work by staff, students and AiR

The University for the Creative Arts (UCA) in Surrey, UK, is inviting students, staff and artists in residence, past and present, to take part in the October Farnham Crafts Month exhibition, ‘Shaping Glass, Shaping Futures’. The event will celebrate the inauguration of the first Farnham Craft Town artist residency.

The show will be held at UCA’s James Hockey Gallery from 1-31 October 2024.

The organisers are seeking proposals for glass works that represent a significant evolution in applicants’ artistic practice and which reflect the influence of their time at UCA. The proposals for work are not limited to glass artworks but can also include physical objects, such as sketch books, experiments and innovative tools, as wells as digital formats. Some ideas for digital submissions may include films, photography, animations, documentaries of the making process, or digital representations of sketchbooks.

The Ceramic and Glass department at UCA hosts workshops that facilitate glass blowing, lamp working, kiln forming and cold working. Works made with any glass technique will be accepted, as will works that combine glass with other materials (at least 50% must be glass).

Up to 25 artists will be selected for the exhibition and the application deadline is 29 April 2024.
