Final call to exhibit at New Ashgate Gallery in Surrey
Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) members are invited to submit their glass works to the ‘Joyful Reflections’ exhibition, to be held at the New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey.
This curated exhibition takes place from Saturday 30 April until Saturday 11 June 2022.
In this show, the CGS is looking for work from artists that shows quality and the beauty of glass. All our lives have been turned upside down since March 2020. Many of us have experienced highs and lows, fear and boredom, illness and isolation. Through it all, a solace has been the sanctuary of our work and the beauty of the material of glass.
We invite you to step back from the sadness of the pandemic and to embrace the joy of life now. Reflect upon the glorious and mysterious properties of glass – its transparency, its uniqueness, the variety of techniques it offers, its ability to reflect back at us – and for us to express joyful reflections on life and glass!
The selection panel includes Outi Remes from the New Ashgate Gallery, a CGS Board member and an independent artist.
One piece of work can be submitted, or a group of small pieces that does not exceed the maximum dimensions of 75cm high x 75cm wide x 30cm deep. Wall pieces and plinth-based work are acceptable.
Entrants must be CGS members so, if you are not yet a member but would like the opportunity to take part in this show, why not join here?
Work submitted for consideration must have been made after 1 January 2018 and must be for sale.
