CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: International Symposium of Engraved Glass in Kamenický Šenov

Applications are still being accepted for the 7th International Symposium of Engraved Glass in Kamenický Šenov, Czech Republic. Registration for active participation is open until July 15, 2017 for the event taking place September 11- 17, 2017 at the Kamenický Šenov Glass Museum.

The symposium's primary goal is to draw more attention to engraved glass, the historical standard for glassmaking in the town of Kamenický Šenov. Glass traditions in Czech will be the focus of the event, however, numerous artists across both Europe and the United States will be in attendance.

This year's symposium will be comprised of three sections: International Symposium of Engraved Glass, Student Section of the International Symposium of Engraved Glass and Theoretical Symposium of Engraved Glass.

Artists participating in the practical symposium will work in the Secondary School of Glassmaking in Kamenický Šenov, the oldest glassmaking school in Europe, to create original artwork with an emphasis on cut and engraved glass. Participants in the student section will be invited to attend professional lectures and be familiarized with the work of world-renowned artists who specialize in engraved glass.The theoretical symposium portion will delve deeper into the details and up-to-date information regarding Czech engraved glass.

For additional information and access to application materials, visit the Association of the Symposium of Engraved Glass website.
