"Call for Entries: New Glass Review 21"
1999-07-23 until 1999-10-15
Corning Museum of Glass
Corning, NY, USA United States of America

Each year, The Corning Museum of Glass conducts a worldwide competition to select 100 slides of innovative works in glass. A committee drawn from designers, artists, museum directors, curators, and critics will make the selection. The publication is intended to keep its audience, which includes museums, artists, libraries, collectors, scholars, and dealers, informed of recent developments in the field. Objects considered excellent from any of several viewpoints-such as function, subject matter, esthetics, and technique-will be chosen. The objects selected will be published in color with the names of the makers and brief descriptions of the pieces.

All glassmakers, artists, designers, and companies are invited to participate in New Glass Review 21. Only glass designed and made during 1999 may be submitted for this annual survey. Participants are requested to complete the attached form, submitting a total of three (3) slides illustrating one work or design series per slide. Slides must be standard 35 mm, 2 x 2 (5.1 cm x 5.1 cm) size, of pieces designed and made during 1999; they should be clearly labeled with identification number and title. Please indicate the top of each work. Backgrounds will be cropped at the discretion of the editor unless otherwise indicated on the slide by the glassmaker. The quality of the review depends upon the quality of the slides; each slide should be suitable for reproduction. All slides become the property of The Corning Museum of Glass and will be added to its collection, the worlds most comprehensive visual record of contemporary glass. This collection is used extensively by scholars, dealers, collectors, and glass artists, and is therefore of considerable potential value to you. We encourage all artists and companies to enter. Beginning in 1999, the New Glass Review competition will be judged during the first week of December. All entries, accompanied by a $15.00 U.S. entry fee*, must be postmarked no later than October 15, 1999, and sent to: New Glass Review The Corning Museum of Glass One Corning Glass Center Corning, New York, 14830-2253 U.S.A. *Exceptions will be made only in the case of artists from countries which do not release foreign currency.
