Winter Glass Market Lead Artists
Call out for lead artists
Submit an Expressions of Interest form to become a lead artist at the 2017 Winter Glass Market for the following:
Expressions of interest are sought from experienced artists from the Canberra Glassworks community to plan and coordinate a program of demonstrations, across all disciplines, throughout our building and/or outdoors for eight hours on Saturday 17 June 2017.
Your expression of interest should provide:
- an overview of your background and experience
- an indication of the types of demonstrations (within the allocated budget) that may be provided
- potential demonstrating artists
Canberra Glassworks will provide its facilities for these demonstrations.
NB: As this is a fundraising event, the option for works made on the night to be auctioned at the event or donated for other fundraising activities, will be favourably considered.
Proposed Fee/Demonstration Budget: $2000
2) Outdoor Commission
Following the success of the Sui Jackson’s Wood Fired Glass Furnace for Winter Glass Market 2015 and 2016, we are seeking expressions of interest for an artist to develop a concept for a creative installation for the Winter Glass Market 2017.
Made primarily from glass or demonstrate glass making processes, the design must incorporate lighting. Canberra Glassworks will work with the Lead Artist to develop a crowd sourcing campaign to raise funds to support the production of this commission over the months leading into the Winter Glass Market on 17 June 2017.
Your expression of interest should be no more than two pages in length providing:
- an overview of your background, experience, local networks
- a creative concept (including drawings)
- the estimated budget for this outdoor commission.
Proposed Base Commission Fee: $1000
3) Fundraiser Project
Each year, Canberra Glassworks asks its artistic community to collaboratively develop works to be sold during the Winter Glass Market. This has included Winter Glow Gardens in 2015 and 2016 and the creation of tumblers for sale at the bars during the market.
We are seeking expressions of interest for a lead artist to plan and coordinate a unique, new collaborative glass making project for our artistic community for Winter Glass Market 2017. Ideally, it would entail the production of individual items which would be displayed as an installation and available for sale.
Your expression of interest should be no more than one page in length. We ask that you provide:
- overview of your background and experience
- one to three creative concepts (including drawing) that could easily be made by artists who hire and use our facility in the months leading up to the event
We would supply the materials and time in our facility for these works to be made.
Proposed Commission Fee/Budget: $1000
