  • Balance is concerned with the distribution of visual interest- what is where in a composition. Balance can also be described as achieving equilibrium. Many people automatically gravitate to symmetry.

    This online exhibition showcases the work of 11 glass artists from Catalonia.

    Curation of this show was assisted by Pilar Aldana-Méndez who very kindly helped select artists who she felt represented the distinct flavour and energy of this unique region.

    From a huge number of entries, 44 member artists have been chosen to present work that uses animals and wildlife to explore their creativity.

    The work conveys the power, vulnerability, fragility, awe, delicacy, colour and sheer beauty of the animal kingdom.

    As humans, we are the only species which consciously, deliberately alters its appearance. Bodily expression can communicate things which words never can. Far from a frivolous, inconsequential medium of expression, the personalised body lies at the heart of human nature and potential.

    With the success of the exhibition for the Dylan Thomas International Glass Competition, the CGS thought it would be a good idea to highlight all those who entered the competition in order be able to view works online.

    The Contemporary Glass Society was thrilled to be take part in the fabulous four day arts extravaganza on 17th – 20th July 2014 at Art in Action.

    We are absolutely delighted to launch this exhibition. It is one of a kind.

    This is the first show we have held that celebrates the technique of water jet cutting.

    With all the recent storms and flooding we have experienced recently, we thought it would be appropriate to find a way to celebrate the unique drama of weather and the elements that we have witnessed this year!

    "Taking Shape: moulds and forming"- Launched on 23rd January 2014

    This latest exhibition explores glass artists whose work depends on forming methods- by exploring 3-dimensional form.
