The Art Glass Show at Haydock Park Racecourse on Sunday October 5th 2014 is designed to be exclusively for the actual artists who are making Contemporary Art Glass in all it’s amazing variety.
There will be NO antique or collectable glass, no reproductions, no factory glass, and no galleries or dealers representing other people. There will be Glass Makers exhibiting and selling their own unique Art Glass, and able to discuss the work in detail and to accept commissions from customers.
We have chosen Haydock Park Racecourse because it offers us everything we could possibly look for in a venue, being moments away from the Motorway (J23 of the M6), with free hard-standing or tarmac parking for over 5,000 vehicles, and sufficient space to expand as the Art Glass Show grows. Initially we have booked the Lancaster Suite, which will provide us with space for 67 six-feet tables (or bring your own display stands).
Our background is over 20 years of staging and running selling exhibitions, starting with Antiques Fairs and currently staging the largest Re-enactors’ Market in the UK, the National Living History Fayre. We staged a couple of Glass Fairs at St Albans many years back, before getting side-tracked into concentrating on the Re-enactment scene, and it is entirely possible that staging these Art Glass Shows is going to see me adding to my own collection of studio art glass…
The Art Glass Show will be open to customers from 11am to 4pm, admission is set at £2
