Drysdale businesses preview their glass art
At an exclusive Preview on December 16, businesses in the Drysdale area will get their first glimpse of pieces of glass art that they have commissioned from local glass artists.
The commissioned pieces will be the prizes in a glass art Treasure Hunt that will be a feature of the sixth Festival of Glass in February 2016. In early February, the businesses will display their pieces of glass art at their premises, together with some glass ‘Tiny Treasures’ – clues in the Treasure Hunt. The Treasure Hunt will culminate in a draw for the commissioned glass art at the Festival Expo on 21 February at Christian College, Drysdale.
Festival convenor Doug Carson said, “The Treasure Hunt is an innovative blend of art and commerce, so we’re very pleased that so many businesses are participating in it. It’s really boosted business involvement in the Festival of Glass, as well as promoting the work of local glass artists and growing the area's reputation as a centre of glass-related activities.”
