Download application CGS at Farnham application - FINAL

 CGS is delighted to be working with the New Ashgate Gallery in our 25th Anniversary Year. In this show we are looking for work from artists that show quality and the beauty of glass.
All our lives have been turned upside down since March, 2020.  We have all experienced highs and lows, fear and boredom, illness and isolation.  Through it all, acting as a solace for many of us, has been the sanctuary of our work and the beauty of the material that we work with.

We invite you to step back from the sadness of the pandemic and to embrace the joy of life as we know it now.  We ask you to 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 to express joyful reflections on life and glass!

The selection:

The selection will take place in January 2022 by a panel including Outi Remes from the Gallery, a CGS Board member and an independent artist tbc.


One piece of work can be submitted, or a group of small pieces that does not exceed the dimensions. You can send up to 3 images of the piece, with at least one showing the whole piece.

We welcome wall pieces as well as plinth based work.
