2020-05-09 2020-06-06 America/New_York Molten Glass Competition & Exhibition

The Allegany Arts Council is excited to announce the call for entry for its 2020 Molten Glass Competition & Exhibition is now open!

Glass-making has been an artform for hundreds of years, but generally falls into one of three categories - cold glass, warm glass and hot glass.  This exhibition focuses on two of those mediums, warm and hot glass.  

Creating work using the hot/warm glass technique involves work with molten glass at temperatures of around 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the glass becomes viscuous, it can be formed into a variety of objects.

The exhibition will feature work from a variety of artists using multiple techniques and styles. 

The Call

Entries are now being accepted through www.callforentry.org and the deadline to enter is April 2, 2020. Artists may enter up to six (6) entries - the fee to enter is $30.00 for the first two entries and an additional $15.00 per entry thereafter.

Enter Now! 

Prizes

Prizes will be awarded in the following amounts:

Best in Show: $1000
Second Place: $750
Third Place: $500

The Juror

Erwin Timmers is co-founder and co-director of the Washington Glass School, where he teaches glass, lighting, sculpture, and metal work.

Originally from Amsterdam, he moved to California where he graduated from Santa Monica College for Design Art and Architecture. In 1999 he came to the Washington DC area and since then his sculptural artwork has been on display in an increasing number of local, regional and national galleries.  He has received multiple public art commissions and is also featured in numerous private collections. His work has been featured in “100 Mid-Atlantic Artists” by Ashley Rooney, and “Cast” by Jen Townsend and Renée Zettle-Sterling.  In 2018, Erwin received the Outstanding Artist Award from Montgomery County, Maryland.

Timmons is one of the area’s leading “green artists”, using recycling and waste in his work to explore how they relate to society.  His main medium is one of the least recycled materials; float glass or window glass, and he has had to develop new techniques to exploit the properties of this material. His approach to art is multi-faceted, incorporating metalwork, innovative lighting and glass design.

Public Opening & Awards

The 2020 exhibition will take place May 9-June 6, 2020. The Public Opening & Awards will take place Saturday, May 9, 2020, from 6:00PM-8:00PM in the Saville Gallery. The Public Opening is free and open to the public.
