Celebration! – open exhibition call out

We are delighted to announce that we will be celebrating our 40th anniversary by holding an open exhibition alongside our juried exhibition On the Edge, at The Trades House of Glasgow this autumn.

Applications forms for this exhibition are now available at the bottom of this page. Closing date for entries is midnight on the 25th July 2019.

The exhibition will run from 17 – 25 September 2019. Once again this coincides with the Glasgow ‘Doors Open’

The theme of the exhibition is CELEBRATION! – a celebration of technique, form, colour, heritage and life.

The aim of the exhibition is to celebrate the possibilities of contemporary glass making in Scotland and introduce new audiences to glass art and artists. The work displayed will feature a wide range of techniques from hot blown forms, fused glass, stained glass panels, pâte de verre, engraving, jewellery, cast glass and more. Each artist will explain why this  work fulfils the theme and why they have chosen the pieces on display to express that passion for their chosen material. All the work on display will be for sale

There is an entry fee of £30 per application, £15 for students and this entitles you to include a maximum of one entry per member.

There is a maximum size restriction of work that can be exhibited – 1m by 1m.

This show is open to all members of the Scottish Glass Society. Non-members of SGS are welcome to submit an application but must join SGS to do so.

The closing date for entries is midnight on the 25th July 2019.
