Opportunity to exhibit your glass in Wales
Makers Guild Wales is working in partnership with the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) to offer CGS members the opportunity to exhibit their contemporary glass work at the Craft in the Bay gallery, Cardiff.
The exhibition, entitled “Flow”, is open to all CGS members and will run from 2 April to 29 May 2022. Applications must show use of glass that expresses an individual interpretation of the word “flow”. This could take the form of the flow of glass itself, of ideas, of creativity, or of movement (e.g. physical in the making process, movement of material…).
The definition of the word “flow” is: ‘to move steadily and continuously in a current or stream’. A flow state, meanwhile, is described as: ‘being in the zone, a mental state in which a person performing an activity (such as making) is fully immersed, a feeling of hyper focus, intense, leading to a sense of ecstasy and clarity’.
Glass artists are invited to submit images of up to three pieces of work. There is no limit with scale, but artists will be responsible for the costs of delivery and return of work.
The Craft in the Bay gallery has vast windows, perfect for displaying glass to its best advantage. It can accommodate wall pieces, plinth-based, suspended and cabinet-based works.
This event is one of many taking place throughout 2022 to mark the 25th anniversary of the CGS. From humble beginnings, the Society has grown into a thriving and proactive organisation, supporting a membership of over 1,000 in the UK and overseas.
In addition, 2022 is the UN-designated International Year of Glass, so this is an opportunity to promote glorious glass to the world.
Location: Makers Guild, Craft in the Bay, The Flourish, Lloyd George Avenue, Cardiff, CF10 4QH.
This is a selected show, open to all current CGS members. If you are not a member yet, you can join now here.
