(r)evolve was the ausglass conference held in Canberra, Australia, 26-29 Janaury 2017.  Ausglass is the principal body promoting contemporary glass in Australia. The conference brought together Australian and international glass artists, educators, collectors, enthusiasts and industry representatives in a program of presentations, demonstrations, workshops and exhibitions that focused on the conference themes: create, sustain and evolve.


There have been a number of exciting gallery exhibitions staged to coincide with the conference.  These have been especially mounted to reflect the themes of (r)evolve.  

Our grateful thanks to the principals at each gallery for their enthusiasm to be a part of the conference and for their long-standing support to Ausglass and the entire glass art community.  

The following exhibitions were visited by evening 'gallery hops' during the conference. 

Beyond the 'gallery hops' there were plenty of other glass events in and around Canberra at the time; some are standing displays, others dedicated exhibitions.  


And beyond Canberra ... Ausglass Members, Conference delegates and visitors to Sydney will be interested that the annual major glass exhibition mounted by Sabbia Gallery, the 2017 edition titled ‘Review – Masters of Glass 2017’, 25 January to 25 February 2017, will coincide with the conference.  Ausglass is grateful to the gallery's principals for their ongoing support to student/emerging artists through the Sabbia Exhibition Award. (see 'prizes & awards')
