York’s Pyramid Gallery is 40 years old this year – and is celebrating with a dazzling new exhibition.
The Stonegate gallery has teamed up with the Contemporary Glass Society to stage ‘Bedazzled’.
Twenty-five glass artists have been selected by the society for this special exhibition to mark its own silver jubilee.
The show, which will include a total of 60 glass exhibits ranging in styles and techniques that include ‘engraving’, ‘blowing’, ‘fusing’, ‘slumping’, ‘casting’, ‘cane and murine work’, ‘flame working’, ‘cutting’, ‘polishing’, ‘brush painting’ and ‘metal leaf decoration’.
Gallery owner Terry Brett, who has acquired a passion for studio glass since taking on the business in 1994, is expecting visitors and collectors to be amazed at the range of different types of glass art and the quality of the work on display.
“There are so many different ways to create a work of art using glass, and we have in this show some really stunning and imaginatively made glass treasures,” Terry said.
Alongside the main show, a secondary exhibition, named by the CGS as ‘Razzle Dazzle’, includes small pieces that measure no more than 5 x 5 inches by 60 makers.
The show opened on Saturday (10 September) and runs until 30 October. Gallery opening times are 10am until 5pm Monday to Saturday. The exhibition can be viewed online on the gallery website here.
