Migrate - New Gallery

Scottish Glass Society


December 2009

This year’s annual exhibition for the Scottish Glass Society is a show with a difference, as we are celebrating 30 years since the Society was first established in 1979. To honour this momentous anniversary we would like to introduce Migrate, which showcases the best of emerging and established Scottish glass artists. This contemporary art glass exhibition is based on the theme of Migration; and examines the different ways that artists express a sense of place and identity in their work; bringing together a collective of glass artists that actively challenge and contribute to the rich Scottish Art scene. The final leg of this touring exhibition is at the Broadfield House Glass Museum, in the West Midlands and will run until the 21st of March 2010.

The Exhibition features 30 selected Glass Artists; the range of work includes cast, etched, engraved, slumped, fused, blown, leaded, stained and painted panels, forms and sculptural pieces. The following artists' work is on show: Karen Akester, Kim Bramley, Nichola Burns, Keeryong Choi, James Denison Pender, Junko Eager, Rachel Elliott, Carrie Fertig, Dominic Fondé, Alexander Galloway, Siobhan Healy, Kate Henderson, Max Jacquard, Jessamy Kelly, Alison Kinnaird M.B.E., Emma Lindsay, Karen Liversedge, Tanwen Llewelyn. Julia Malle, Eilidh Mackenzie, Judith Ann McCrorie, Rosalynd McKenzie, Denis Mann, Keïko Mukaïdé, Stephen Richard, Alan Robinson, Liz Rowley, Angela Steel, Max Stewart & Jeff Zimmer.
