Water & Music Exhibition Of Glass
18 March - 21 May 2017
‘Water & Music’ Glass inspired by the 300th anniversary of Handel’s Water Music
A collaboration between Pyramid Gallery, York and The Contemporary Glass Society.
The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) is the UK’s foremost organisation for supporting established artists, for supporting up-and-coming makers and for promoting contemporary glass in the wider art world. The CGS and Pyramid Gallery are extremely pleased to be collaborating once again in promoting exceptional talent, and on this occasion to be commemorating the 300th anniversary year of Handle’s fantastic Water Music.
The CGS invited its members to let their imagination flow and newly create an inspired piece of glass, or submit work that was directly inspired by Water or Music. From over 50 marvellous submissions, 27 British and International Glass Artists have been invited to submit work of various styles and glass making techniques. In addition to individual pieces, the exhibition will also include two installations. One will comprise many jingling glass tiles representing a waterfall by Liz French and the other a light and music installation by Paul Miller on Pate de Verre hanging panels by Griet Beyaert.
