Glass for Art and Architecture

Emerge 2012




Emerge 2012 was Bullseye’s seventh biennial, juried kiln-glass exhibition for emerging artists in kilnformed glass. The competition attracted more than 350 entrants from more than 30 countries. Jurors were Laura Addison, Silvia Levenson and Klaus Moje.

The Emerge 2012 exhibition ran at Bullseye Gallery in Portland from April 4 to June 23, 2012. Selected award-winning works later travelled to the New Mexico Museum of Art and to Bullseye Resource Center Bay Area.

A full-color exhibit catalog Emerge 2012: A Showcase of Rising Talents in Kiln-glass is available from Bullseye's Online Store, Bullseye Gallery or any Bullseye Resource Center.
