Virginia Glass Guild Juried Exhibition 2017

Saturday, October 14, 2017

VGG 2017 Rogan, Ali  Aerodramus Avis Nidum Vitro Aureo.jpgThis 30th annual juried exhibition presents the many forms of glass created by members of the Virginia Glass Guild, a membership organization of glass artists working all across the state of Virginia. This exhibition offers a wide range of creative glass processes, including blown, carved, cast, painted, flame-worked, fused, leaded, neon, sandblasted, and stained glass.

Related events will include the juror’s lecture and a silent auction. Gallery Manager, James Warwick Jones notes, “More than any other group of artists I know, these VGG members are constantly taking workshops, studying their craft, and learning new techniques which they incorporate into their latest work as it evolves and expands. In their juror’s statement from last year’s exhibition Douglas and Katya Heller wrote, “The exhibition is a microcosm of the ongoing evolution occurring as glass continues to be embraced as a material of creative expression by an ever-widening circle of artists and makers.”   An internationally known glass artist,  will select and present $3,750 in cash awards and scholarships.
