Some fifty exhibitors will be showcasing glass art; together with selected works in other media. There are opportunities for serious buyers and collectors of art as well as smaller pieces and giftware to suit all pockets.
This is a chance to learn more about the craft and glass art conservation: the London Stained Glass Repository, the British Society of Master Glass Painters and the Stained Glass Museum at Ely will all be at the Fair.
Glass artists scheduled to exhibit include Alex R, Peter Newsome, Frans Wesselman, Amber Hiscott and John Reyntiens. More artists will be announced on the Glaziers’ Art Fair website later this month: glaziersartfair.com.
The Master of the Glaziers’ Company, Alex Galloway, said: “This Fair gives us a unique opportunity to showcase glass artists and promote the craft of architectural glass art.”
Visitors to the event can learn more about the formation of the City Livery Companies, the work of the Glaziers’ Livery Company, the work of its charities and the art of architectural glass art from mediaeval stained glass to cutting-edge buildings today.
Visitors can also look round the home of the Glaziers’ Livery Company, at the only Livery Hall south of the Thames. Close to Southwark Cathedral, the London Bridge Experience and Borough Market, the Hall is built onto London Bridge and its famous River Room overlooks the river itself giving a panoramic view of the City of London.
The Fair is sponsored by Windsor Glass Limited, and is run in association with the Oxford University Society Alumnus Society, OUS London, some of whose artists will also be exhibiting at the Fair.
All online Fair ticket-buyers will be entered into a draw to win a meal for two at the world-famous Benihana in London. Located within the contemporary 5-Star Grange St Paul’s Hotel, guests will delight in a unique style of Japanese teppanyaki “eatertainment” as your very own chef cooks your meal right in front of your eyes on traditional hibachi grill tables. Look out for egg juggling and onion volcanoes!
