A profusion of glass can be found in Buckinghamshire from February.
Buckinghamshire County Museum in Aylesbury hosts an exciting exhibition featuring work by over 30 members of the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) from February 2 to March 23. There is an official launch from 1pm to 3pm on February 2.
“The CGS chose Bucks County Museum in Aylesbury as the venue to display glass art work from artists based in the Midlands, surroundings counties and Greater London,” explains Sue Purser Hope, Chair of the Contemporary Glass Society. “The exhibition features work by members at any stage of their career and is unselected. All work is 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.”
Artists taking part are: Askett Glass, Maggie Barton, Carolyn Basing, Gavin Caspersz, Teresa Chlapowski, Caroline Cousin, Estelle Dean, Juliette Derwent, Fiona Fawcett, Pam Fyvie, Adriana Garcia, Hannah Gibson, Aneta Glowacka, Adele Gowrie, Gay Hutchings, Tlws Johnson, Nicola Kantorowicz, Sharon Korek, Jan Langdale, Jessie Lee, Julie Light, Anne-Marie Lowe, Pat Marvell, Judith Menges, Linda Morley, Wendy Newhofer, Nathalie Ozouf, Jacque Pavlosky, Susan Purser Hope, Morag Reekie, Cathryn Shilling, Phillipa Stacey, Vikki Stacey, Joe Szabo, Geoff Thwaites, Mandy Treptow, Jane Vincent, Alison Vincent and Kathryn Webley.
There will also be a Forum Day from 10am to 4pm on March 16 and a Glass Makers Fair from 10.30am to 3pm on March 23.
