NEWBURYPORT – The Newburyport Art Association continues its ‘celebration of glass’ this year with its largest ever exhibition to celebrate all forms of glass, physical material and art glass, and the associations, subjects and themes of the glass in other media.
This exhibition is for all media and everyone – members and non-members, all age groups and all levels of experience. The association plans to use its entire building to celebrate in all of its gallery spaces so that there is room for all interpretations and explorations, according to a press release.
“The NAA’s mission is about access and this is where we cross the glass,” the association said in the statement. “It’s all around us: in our windows, glasses, phones, light bulbs, glasses, mirrors, etc. For example, we know it through reflection, transparency, kaleidoscope, glasses, refraction and optics. In our language and our stories… “Mirror, mirror on the wall”, “Breaking the glass ceiling” and “Behind the mirror”. We look forward to hearing your views on glass and your perspectives on glass. »
Due to its material properties, glass is and has been at the heart of many disciplinary, industrial and societal changes over the past 5,000 years.
For the many roles of glass and its importance to society, the United Nations has declared 2022 the “International Year of Glass” and NAA celebrates this material alongside museums, galleries and studios around the world.
This exhibition will be lightly judged by a review committee to ensure focus on the theme, while allowing for a varied and diverse group of participating artists and media.
Categories/media accepted: lass, acrylic, digital art, drawing, film/video, fine art, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, printmaking, sculpture and watercolor.
Reproductions of original works and giclée prints cannot be accepted.
The deadline for submission is September 10.
Entry fees are as follows: NAA Artist Plus Members: Up to two free entries, third entry is $18.
