For all those glass artists, and in conjunction with the Ausglass 2011 conference being held in Sydney in January 2011, Object is dedicating it's Collector's Cabinet to glass. We are looking for your stories...
OPEN CALL OUT FOR GLASS SUBMISSIONS: we want to know your stories!!
Object presents an open call out for artists, of any stage of career, to create a glass artwork that is collectable, covetable and engaging. It will be displayed in the Collectors Cabinet at Object Gallery from the 20th – 30th January 2011 and will form one of the exhibitions that will be part of the AusGlass Conference 2011 Peripheral Vision www.peripheralvision.org.au
What you will need to do:
· Find a piece of glass in a second hand store that will be suitable for cold-working (remember to collect your receipt) or ask a friend to ‘gift’ you a blank (remember to document the story as to how this came to be)
· Cold-work it in any way that you like, perhaps it reflects the shape and feel of the original piece, perhaps it re-invents it from Nanna to nice, it’s up to you!
· Write a 50-100 word explanation about where the original piece came from, or who gifted it and your relationship to them. These stories will be displayed with each piece.
All the pieces will be available for sale, so this will be a great chance for collectors, family and friends to own a one of a kind piece. Please note that due to the size restrictions of the cabinet, the object cannot be larger than 30 x 30 x 30cm. Limited spaces available so click here to get more details from our gallery staff.
