Curated by Amanda Game this exhibition explores the people, place and work of North Lands Creative Glass, creating a portrait of the organisation in its twentieth year. North Lands is based in Caithness on the North East Coast of Scotland, and is one of the world’s most prestigious centres for the study and development of glass as an artform, providing excellent facilities, opportunities and inspiration to artists working with glass from all over the world.

This exhibition delves into the North Lands archives and combines works from their study collection, then opens out to showcase major works by ten invited master glass makers: Maria Bang Espersen, Alison Kinnaird, Tobias Møhl, Magdalene Odundo, David Reekie, Colin Reid, Richard Slee, Petr Stanicky, Emma Woffenden and Udo Zembok. The exhibition is part of a broader programme including a three day conference titled A Luddite Convention: Making, Technology and Nature at Edinburgh College of Art from 16 to 18 September. The conference aims to connect ideas formed during the industrial revolution, to the present technological time. Conference speaker, award winning glass artist and Edinburgh College of Art lecturer Geoffrey Mann, will also unveil a site specific installation at Dovecot developed in collaboration with Susanna Beaumont.

North Lands Creative Glass: A Portrait at 20 is presented at Dovecot Gallery with support from Dovecot Foundation, Creative Scotland, Bullseye Glass, Turtleton Charitable Trust and Phebe Miller Olcay in memory of her husband John Olcay.
