National Emerging Art Glass Prize 2018

Wagga Wagga Art Gallery presents the National Emerging Art Glass Prize, an acquisitive, biennial national competition established to promote innovation and excellence in contemporary glass - this will be exhibiting at the same time. Find out more about the NEAGP here. We will be exhibiting Wagga Wagga's National Emerging Art Glass Prize at the same time as the National Contemporary Jewellery Award exhibition. 

Established in 2010 and held every two years, the Prize is recognised nationally and internationally as one of the premier events in Australian glass. As the home of the National Art Glass Collection, the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is proud of the role that this award plays in promoting glass as one of Australia’s most innovative artforms.

For the 2018 award, twenty-nine of Australia’s most innovative and exciting new glass artists were selected to present their entries. The exhibition features current students and recent graduates from universities across Australia including the Australian National University, the University of South Australia, Monash University in Melbourne, Edith Cowan University and Curtin University in Western Australia, and the University of Sydney. Together, these extraordinary new talents showcase the future of Australian glass as one of the most dynamic, experimental, conceptually challenging and yet technically skilled movements worldwide.
