New Exhibitions At The World Of Glass

The latest exhibitions at The World of Glass Arts And Heritage centre have been announced.

Drawing The Collection

To coincide with the national event of The big Draw this exhibition takes museum collections from around the North West for inspiration. Artists have come together to produce work which are significant to each individual because of their association with an item, building, piece of artwork or the emotion it provokes. Taking drawing in its broadest meaning we have challenged artists to be ‘creative’ with the mediums they use – expect the unexpected and maybe find a new way of drawing.

An abstract retrospective by Phil Wilkinson

Phil has brought together an eclectic collection of his abstract work which Phil himself has said may surprise people. Expect both bright and bold juxtaposed with sombre and dark images to create a very personal exhibition.

The Glass Wardrobe

A look back at Women’s fashion from the late 1890’s to the end of the 20th Century. The rise and fall of the hemline and the cinched in waist of the corset to the unrestricted dropped waist from the 1920’s, we’ve even got a bit of lurex form the 1970’s. This is really a true reflection of how women have battled with the social aspect of body image and how we wrap our bodies to please society.

The exhibitons will run from Saturday 9th September to Friday 3rd November
