Bruntnell –Astley.com Call to UK artists 2016
In 2016 with the closure of Broadfield glass museum and its relocation by the British Glass Foundation to the new bespoke ‘Whitehouse site’ just opposite the ‘Redhouse Cone’ in Stourbridge UK. A new national glass collection will be housed, opened up and displayed in the very heart of UK's once glass making industry.
Bruntnell-Astley is in negotiations with the British Glass Foundation with regard to having an in house gallery, for the Autumn of 2016. Bruntnell-Astley will display contemporary glass art that will be available for purchase to the public (sale or return basis). It will not form part of the national collection but it will compliment it. It’s our aim to create an ongoing saleable display of contemporary glass artworks to the highest order, and show the very best standards of making in the different glass practises.
We are looking for applications from all areas of making: Full time students studying glass as a main subject-Full time professionals-Part time makers with a strong track record of exhibitions and sales. (Areas we not interested in at the moment are diachroic kilned glass Jewellery.)
Bruntnell-Astley will be taking ‘offers of interest’ from UK glass artists and invited international artists. Bruntnell-Astleys ethos is simple.
From full time glass student to international name, if invited to display you will be treated and presented on an equal basis.The quality and craft of the work should speak for itself.
Basically, works can be put forward and we will keep the details for future display (if still available from you). Also what may not be right for display now, maybe right for future in a different context of display?
Until May 1st 2016 we are accepting applications of interest. Please send the following in an email to: email@example.com
