Current Exhibition

45 member artists that question the surface of glass and employ sandblasting techniques to enhance their work were chosen for this show.

The technique of sandblasting is one where surface of glass is blasted with grit giving the surface a cloudy appearance. Light is still able to filter through the surface and when patterns using a resist of mask are used, a variety of surface and three-dimensional effects can be achieved.

This is a member-only exhibition. Work by artists was put forward for selection by the CGS committee.

This online gallery exhibition was launched on 13th May 2015.
