South West Glass Cooperative Exhibition at 45 Southside, 11th Oct to 12th Nov 2015
An exciting exhibition is coming up at 45 Southside Gallery.
Well established and up and coming glassmakers will display the result of their one week workshop cooperation. Richard Glass, who manages the Teign Valley Glass workshop, had the idea to bring fellow glassmakers and friends together for a week in his newly refurbished Teign Valley Glass workshop.
Gallery owner Mathias Landwehr said: “By exchanging their skills, experiences and creativity within a defined time frame of one week completely new and exciting works of art will be made. I believe this is a great idea which brings out the best of creative minds.”
Richard Glass added: “All participating makers are established artists in their own right… each with their own distinctive style. I am really looking forward to a week of glassmaking with a lot of buzz around in the workshop. It will be great to see what’s possible with the new equipment.”
All glass artists taking part are living in the South West or have strong connections to the region. Amongst them are: Louise Cloke, Matthew and Becky Walsh, Ben Batteson, Phil Atrill, Maggie Williams, Matt Jobling,Thomas Petit, Paul Larner and of course Richard Glass himself.
The exhibition will run from 12th October to 12th November 2015. The opening view is on Sunday 11th October from 3pm to 6pm, all are welcome.
