Nick Mount – The Fabric of Work

14 May to 19 June 2014

A leading figure in the Australian glass scene, Nick Mount was honoured in 2012 by Object: Australia Centre for Design as the subject of a Living Treasure: Masters of Australian Craft survey exhibition. This exhibition features a new series of sculptural assemblages that range in scale and character and combine a respect for traditional Venetian glassmaking techniques with a wry Australian wit.

25 June to 4 August 2014

This exhibition of Glass and Print is the culmination of a joint project between CGW and Megalo. In the neighbourly spirit of borrowing a cup of flour and sharing some fresh baked cake, four print based artists will work with four glass based artists, for several months, sharing skills, knowledge and ideas and making things. This exhibition shows some of the connections between printmaking and glassmaking.
