WANGANUI GLASS 2009

WANGANUI GLASS 2009

12 September – 22 November 2009

As part of this year’s glass festival, the Sarjeant Gallery is pleased to present a selection of work by glass artists who are currently living and working in Wanganui. The exhibition includes the work of students, recent graduates and well-established practitioners, all of whom explore the medium in challenging and engaging ways.

Since the establishment of a glass department at the Wanganui Regional Polytechnic in 1987, Wanganui has become known as a centre of excellence for glass practice. In 2006, the Ministry of Social Development provided Creative Communities funding for a glass facilitator to support and build the glass sector in Wanganui. One successful initiative has been the establishment of a Festival of Glass, with this year being the fourth. The two-week festival will run from 19 September to 4 October.

As part of this year’s festival, the Sarjeant Gallery is pleased to present a selection of work by glass artists who are currently living and working in Wanganui. The variety seen here is a true reflection of the diversity of glass as a medium and is testament to why it has gained in popularity in recent years. The exhibition includes the work of students, recent graduates and well-established practitioners, all of whom explore the medium in challenging and engaging ways.
