Spring brings the start for me of the exhibition season this year. Two European glass festivals I will be showing at and some exciting UK shows too.
May sees the begining with an invite to a show at a glass exhibition in Estonia at the Museum of New Art in Parnu. This is organised by artist Kati Kerstna to celebrate 75 years of Estonian glass Art. I’d love to go but only the work goes this time.
Also overseas I’ll be showing at ‘Glassfest 2012’ in the Czech Republic between June 30th and August 31st at the Minea Gallery in Karlovy Vary.
UK shows start also in May with ‘Winners’ an exhibition of three glass artists who have won recent awards. It’s being held at Peter Laytons ‘London Glassblowing ‘ gallery and I will be travelling down to demonstrate my work (hopefully a Wave) on the 25th of May. I’ll also be showing work at an exhibition celebrating it’s 30th at Pyramid Gallery in York around the same time.
Summer brings my third visit to Waterperry House and Art in Action. I thought they might have had enough of me by now but it’s always interesting and good fun too so delighted to go again. If you miss ‘Winners’ all three of us will be there demonstrating to the public. Also American artist Scott Benefield who I met last year at Luxenbourg. Excited to see him work.
I’m pleased to say I was accepted into the 2012 Glass Biennale. This time with two works and I plan to go in person this time!. It opens on the 24th August.
So that is about it, plenty on. More info as it comes.
