Gayle Matthias, Senior Lecturer on BA(Hons) Contemporary Crafts, has just been informed of the inclusion of an image of her mixed media work in New Glass Review 35. Published in spring 2014, New Glass Review is an annual survey of contemporary glass undertaken by The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, USA. A total of 930 individuals and companies from 46 countries submitted 2,707 images of work. The 100 objects featured in the review were selected by four international jurors comprised of significant curators and artistic directors in the field of glass, including the curator of Modern Glass at Corning Museum, US and James Yood, independent art critic and professor, the School of Art Institute of Chicago.
Gayle was also selected for the same publication last year with Anatomical Deconstruction V along with four other British artists including Dennis Blatchley, Associate Lecturer on the Contemporary Crafts course at Falmouth.
Gayle will be co-presenting a paper at the Glass Art Society conference in March in Chicago with Research Fellow Tavs Jorgensen. James Yood will provide a keynote address. Gayle is also hoping to visit the School of Art Institute of Chicago.
