The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) Eastern Hub will exhibit at Riverside Art and Glass, Wroxham, from July 11-25.

This selling exhibition is open to all glass artists based in the East, who are CGS members.

Society chairman Sue Purser Hope, who will be exhibiting, said: “We had such a successful event last year that the gallery was keen to hold another event. They even took some of our artists to exhibit in the gallery on a long-term basis.”

She relocated to the county five years ago to fulfil a lifetime’s ambition to live by the sea.

Eleven artists are exhibiting showing a wide range of both wall-hung and plinth-based work spanning a wide range of techniques. Last year the society celebrated 20 years since its foundation as the UK’s principal supporter and promoter of artists and collectors of contemporary glass.
