SOLAS: An exhibition of Irish Glass by the Glass Society of Ireland

 

Our first exhibition of the new year is SOLAS: An exhibition of Irish Glass by the Glass Society of Ireland, you are kindly invited to attend the opening reception which takes place today, Wednesday 6 January 2016 at 3pm.

SOLAS: An exhibition of Irish Glass is a significant touring exhibition which will showcase the immense talent of glass makers in Ireland.

The exhibition runs from 6 - 29 January 2016 and has previously traveled to three venues nationwide including: NCAD Gallery, Dublin, The Hunt Museum, Limerick and Greyfriars Municipal Art Gallery, Waterford.

A broad range of high quality work by twenty-four artists has been selected for exhibition.

Well-known artists such as Róisín de Buitléar, Peadar Lamb and Andrea Spencer will be on display alongside emerging talent such as Sadhbh Moulds and Emma Bourke. It is significant for Irish glass makers to showcase their work in the context of the GSoI where they are part of a larger community.

As a community of designers and makers, they can become more visible, gain confidence, and demonstrate the potential for the future of this alluring material. Light and glass have long been intertwined, reflections and refraction, luminous colours, dramatic shadows and spectacular prisms; glass offers the designer a rich set of implements even beyond the physicality of the medium itself.
