10 - 13 MAY: STAND 9.1

London Glassblowing Gallery is proud to have been selected as one of thirty-two galleries to exhibit at leading international art fair for contemporary objects, COLLECT, in this, its 10th anniversary year.

Established in 1976 by internationally renowned glass artist, Peter Layton, London Glassblowing Gallery aims to bring contemporary glass art to the widest possible audience. Dedicated to seeking out and nurturing new talent, the gallery presents an ever-changing display of museum-quality glass, showcasing work from artists of the highest regard alongside lesser-known artists, tipped for future success.  

The artists selected by London Glassblowing for COLLECT have been chosen for their fresh and challenging approach to this exciting medium. Most have not shown at the fair before. All their work is new.
