Emerge 2014 Exhibition Catalog Available

Bullseye Glass Co. in Portland, Oregon, has published the exhibition catalog for Emerge 2014, the company's eighth biennial juried competition for emerging artists in kilnformed glass.

Emerge 2014, Bullseye's eighth biennial juried competition for emerging artists in kilnformed glass, attracted more than 320 entrants from a total of 32 countries and 35 universities. A total of eight prizes were awarded, including the Gold Award to Kathryn Wightman (New Zealand). Wightman's "Posy" is featured on the cover.

The elegant, full-color catalog includes:
• An introduction by Bullseye Gallery director Lani McGregor
• Photos of the artwork by the winners and finalists—more than 40 artists
• Artist statements and profiles
• An interview with jurors Kathleen Moles, Emily Nachison, and James Yood

Plus, to acknowledge the fact that an artist’s career is never a before-and-after snapshot, the catalog includes a new section, Evolve, celebrating former Emerge finalists whose subsequent work continues to expand the medium:
• Martie Negri, USA (Emerge 2006)
• Nathan Sandberg, USA (Emerge 2004)
• Amanda Simmons, UK (Emerge 2012)

Evolve will be a permanent part of Emerge in the future. Both Emerge 2014 and Evolve exhibits are on display at Bullseye Gallery through June 28. As Emerge/Evolve, they will begin a national tour this summer with stops at Bullseye Resource Center Bay Area, Pittsburgh Glass Center, and Bellevue Arts Museum.
