From: 10/07/2012 To: 01/09/2012 09:00 - 17:00
Phone: 01379 741120
A world-class exhibition dedicated to the best in contemporary blown, hot-worked and sand-cast glass takes place at the prestigious Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA) gallery next spring.
Artists and studios are now being invited to submit proposals for this outstanding exhibition of glass from the furnace.
A collaboration between CAA and the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS), the exhibition will present a dynamic mix of new work from some of the world’s most talented artists.
Artists can submit original proposals for work that is sculptural or functional, and can present limited-edition production work, a single piece, a group or a set. The work, whether single or multiple, must occupy a space no larger that 1m wide, high and deep.
Who may apply and what will it cost?
Any artists or studio may apply from anywhere in the world. Submission is free for members of CAA and CGS. A submission fee of £30 will be charged to non-members.
CGS/CAA will consider work in the medium of glass, or with the predominant use of glass, produced from the furnace. This includes glass blowing, hot-worked glass and sand-casting.
The jury panel will be looking for proposals that are original and eye catching that represent a wide range of furnace-based work. Proposals should be supported by images of existing work that demonstrate a mastery of technique as well as artistic flair.
The work, whether single or multiple, must occupy a space no larger that 1m wide, high and deep. Please note that this does not mean that the work will be displayed in this way – it is simply as a guide to size and quantity.
How to submit work
All submissions must use the application form. Artists or studios should submit:
Selection of exhibitors is solely by reference to the material supplied, so the quality of the visual images and clarity of the proposal is very important. Choose images of existing work that will give the selection panel confidence that you can successfully achieve your proposal.
All pieces on display must be for sale.
