US and UK artists meet for exhibition of Glass and Ceramics
Using an art exhibition as a bridge between two countries, the Sister City program brought together Sunderland and Washington DC in a show that celebrates the medias of glass and clay and the relationship between the two cities. The exhibition was first shown at Washington DC’s Edison Place Gallery in March this year and has now travelled to Sunderland, England; this is the third collaboration with Sunderland's Sister City DC. In 2008 Glass 3 was held in Georgetown and in 2009, 38 artists from Sunderland participated in the 10th Artomatic.
The exhibition is being shown over two venues in Sunderland, Creative Cohesion and Sunderland Museum from 22nd August- 29th September. DC artists exhibiting: Sean Hennessey, Jeff Herrity, Michael Janis, Tamara Laird, Laurel Lukaszewski, Tim Tate, Novie Trump. UK artists exhibiting: Stephen Beardsell, Criss Chaney, James Maskrey, Brian Thompson, Robyn Townsend, Margareth Troli, Roger Tye, Phil Vickery and Philippa Whiteside.
