An Online open exhibition by members of the Scottish Glass Society
15th October to Tuesday 30th November
Closing Date For applications – Midnight 30th September 2021
Sadly, we have had to take the decision not to hold the 2021 exhibition in person this year. This is due to a number of factors which are mainly COVID related. It is still early days in the recovery from COVID and this has impacted particularly on the availability of people to assist with the running of the exhibition.
The good news is we are going to move the exhibition on-line and are making changes to our website currently to facilitate this. This will give extra opportunities for our member to display their art for sale.
And there is still time to submit…
The theme of the exhibition is still ‘Journey!’ Over the last 18 months of the Covid pandemic & subsequent lockdowns, every artist has been affected. Some of us have floundered, some have thrived. Some have been touched by the virus itself, others touched by the humanity & emotional responses which have often been turbulent. Each wave of the virus has brought its own problems & solutions from lack of access to studio space, materials, education & contact with the larger artistic community. In our view, as we look again towards a brighter future, now is the time to for actual physical journeys. Whilst we have all been confined to home for long periods of time over the last year, now we can meet our loved ones & friends again, engage socially & once again be part of our communities. Each of us have been on our own journeys during this time. Some of our journeys will be physical – a walk along the seashore, in the hills or local park, exploring our local neighbourhood, not going out and exploiting our belongings and thoughts…… or even a daydream about all those profound journeys of the past & planning for the future. So many things to see, to feel, to experience. And infinite ways to translate them into glass art. The journey and its interpretation is entirely up to you.
- The on-line exhibition will be open to all current members of Scottish Glass Society
- All entries will be free & SGS will take NO commission.
- All the work on display will be for sale.

There will also be an Opening Event over Zoom on Friday 15th October at 6pm. If you are an artist exhibiting and are on-line, it would be interesting for all of us to hear you talk about your pieces for a couple of minutes. No compulsion though!
