“GLORIOUS GLASS” EXHIBITION, NEWCASTLE - 20 Years of the Contemporary Glass Society

This event has been postponed until 2021

CGS at the Biscuit Factory,
16 Stoddart St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 1AN
5th June – 20th August, 2020
Call Initially for CGS members in North & Scotland but there will probably be room from members elsewhere should they wish to join in.

THEME: In 2017, the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) celebrated 20 years since its foundation as the principle supporter and promoter of artists and collectors of contemporary glass in the UK. It now has almost 1,000 members both nationally and internationally. To continue the celebration of this landmark anniversary and to raise awareness of the glory of contemporary glass, a series of linked exhibitions are being held around Great Britain over the next three years. CGS has chosen the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle as the venue where we will be displaying glass art work from artists based in the North, surroundings counties and Scotland. The exhibition is open to all members at any stage of their career and is unselected with all work for sale.

The aim of the “Glorious Glass” exhibition is to demonstrate how utterly glorious and amazing contemporary glass is so that everyone can appreciate and enjoy its magical colours, textures, use of light and variety of techniques and also discover their own local glass artists. The work displayed will feature as wide a range of techniques as possible. Each artist will explain why glass is glorious to them and why they have chosen the pieces on display to express that passion for their chosen material.
