The Scottish Glass Society 2018 Exhibition will be held at the Trades House of Glasgow in the Merchant City area from 11-18 September 2018. 

Trades House, Glassford Street, Glasgow 
10th – 18th September, 2018

This year we will be joined by the Contemporary Glass Society’s Scottish Hub members. CGS is celebrating its 20th anniversary (2017) by holding a series of exhibitions throughout Great Britain. 

The aim of the exhibition is to demonstrate just how utterly glorious and amazing contemporary glass is so that everyone can appreciate and enjoy its magical colours, textures, use of light and variety of techniques and also discover our Scottish glass artists. The work displayed will feature a wide range of techniques from hot blown forms, fused glass, stained glass panels, pâte de verre, engraving, jewellery, cast glass and more. Each artist will explain why glass is glorious to them and why they have chosen the pieces on display to express that passion for their chosen material. All the work on display will be for sale.

The Trades House of Glasgow is made up of 14 incorporated trades significant in the life and history of Glasgow. It is housed in the Trades Hall which was designed in 1791 by Robert Adam, Scotland’s best known architect of that time. It is magnificent both internally and externally. It is located in the Merchant City, which developed from the 1750s being the location of the residences and warehouses of the ‘tobacco lords’. This is a busy, buzzy area of the city centre with restaurants, shops and bars.

The dates of the exhibition coincide with Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival celebrating the city’s architecture, culture and heritage. The Trades House is part of the celebration.
