Guilford Art Center Opens Contemporary Glass Exhibition, “New Glass, Northeast”


New Glass, Northeast, a juried exhibition of contemporary glass art works, will be featured in the Guilford Art Center gallery, March 13-April 5, 2020. The show is juried by Amy Schwartz, Founding Director of The Studio, The Corning Museum of Glass.

This exhibition features works by 20 artists from the Northeast who work in myriad techniques, and includes both functional and non-functional works. The show aims to reflect the best current explorations by contemporary glass artists who live in the Northeast.
