• Call For Entry: “This Leads To That” Juried Exhibition- Deadline Extended: November 30th

    Call for Entries: “This Leads to That” – Deadline 11/30/2015

     The concept:

    Sometimes, it starts with lyrics from a song… or maybe a line from a poem, another work of art that speaks to you, a news headline, or something you saw on vacation.  Maybe it’s a title that inspires a piece that hasn’t even been made yet.  One thing leads to another.  Glass Axis is looking for glass art inspired by “something else.”  Our juried exhibit “This Leads to That” will take place from January 8 – February 20, 2016.  Your glass art might be a good fit for this exhibit if you can fill in the blanks: “I saw/read/heard/overheard/dreamed about ____, and that inspired me to make _____.”  We welcome all forms of glass from both emerging and established artists.  All art submitted must have either been inspired by glass or resulted in a piece comprised of at least 50% glass and must have been made within the last 3 years.


    This exhibition will be held in The Kennedy Galleries at Glass Axis, a 417 square foot exhibition space in our new(ish) facility in Columbus, Ohio. The juror is Tom Hawk, Jr. Tom is director and owner of Hawk Galleries located in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Established in 1986, the gallery represents modern masters who create contemporary sculpture 
that celebrate glass as a fine art medium. Through openings, lectures, demonstrations, national exhibitions and studio tours, Hawk Galleries strives to both educate and connect the collector and artist. In 1986, Tom Hawk, Jr. opened his first gallery featuring contemporary glass with his former wife in Columbus’ Short North helping to establish the developing area as an art district. In 1988, Hawk returned to school at The Ohio State University, and graduated in 1990 with his MBA. In June, 2002 Hawk relocated the gallery to its present downtown location, which features 5,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space, and rental opportunities. Hawk Galleries showcases the museum-caliber works of Lino Tagliapietra, William Morris, Bertil Vallien, Dan Dailey, Christopher Ries, Martin Blank, Dante Marioni and Albert Paley to name only a few.
