Charles Burnand Gallery announces new show reflecting the versatility of glass
Charles Burnand Gallery for the month of September presents First Impression, a group show celebrating glass as a material in contemporary, collectible design with pieces from both established and emerging artists. An intimate curation of ceramic works will sit alongside the glass pieces, referencing the differences across the mediums and celebrating emotional parallels.
This exhibition coincides with the UN’s International Year of Glass; a material that Charles Burnand Gallery has a long standing global reputation for championing in collectible design. Artists on show include CaCO3, Fredrik Nielsen, Joanna Manousis, Zac Weinberg, Dawn Bendick and emerging talent Binghui Song and Inger Sif Heeschen.
“To be able to curate a show with glass artworks of this calibre and quality is a clear demonstration of how glass can be taken from the everyday and elevated to extraordinary levels. First Impression challenges the viewers perception of glass and is a true celebration of the fragility and strength of this age old medium” says Charles Burnand Gallery owner Simon Stewart.
Located in the heart of Fitzrovia’s art district the show will also run the duration of London Design Festival, the lead up into which will feature a series of intimate events and lectures within the gallery.
