Contenporary Australian Glass

The Glass Art Society of America conference held in Adelaide in May 2005, has inspired a special temporary exhibition, Contemporary Australian Glass, from the Art Gallery of South Australia collection.

Showing until September 2005, Gallery 19, Art Gallery of South Australia.

South Australia is one of the leading centres for Australian studio glass. The region has played a significant role in promoting glass art in Australia, in particular, since the development of the glass studio at the Jam Factory Workshops in 1974.

Contemporary Australian Glass highlights the work of over twenty glass artists, including nationally and internationally recognized artists such as Klaus Moje, Nick Mount and Giles Bettison with a focus on prominent local glass artists from the late 1970’s to the present. Recent gallery acquisitions include works by glass artists Clare Belfrage and Tim Shaw.

Curator Robert Reason will be giving a free lunchtime talk on Brian Hirst's Votive bowl and shadow plate, 2002 from the collection, at 12.45 pm on Tuesday 5 July 2005.
