Through a Glass Brightly
Adelaide's Jam Factory is all about promoting and establishing new artists in the field of glass, metal and furniture design. It is currently exhibiting some of the bright new lights in their chosen fields with an exceptional presentation titled Generate.
The Jam Factory runs an acclaimed Associate training program in their four studio areas, ceramics, glass, furniture and jewelry/metal design. Entry to these courses is very competitive. The course provides guidance and mentorship of these aspiring artists. The course assists with development of products for the retail market, undertaking private commissions and/or research and experimentation for exhibitions and competitions.
Generate is the culmination of the second year associates completing the program. This is an annual showcase of future directions in metal and furniture design and glass. Featured artists are Rhys Cooper, Nicholas Fuller, Angela Giuliani, Andrej Larson, Sylvia Nevistic, Kate Nixon, Stephen Roy, Drew Spangenberg and Davide Spinoni.
Glass artist Drew Spangenberg has assembled a collection of different shaped and coloured glassware entitled Ensemble, which has a simple and well-defined design. The placement of each piece highlights the opposing colours and diversity in shape.
As per the standard of all Jam Factory exhibitions it is impeccable staged, lit and presented. This is an opportunity to see emerging artists and their ingenuity on show. Free admission. Closes January 23rd, 2016.
