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.
