Here They Came

Post war migration of glass professionals to Australia

National Art Glass Gallery: 1 June 2007 - 24 February 2008

This exhibition investigates the rich migration stories of professional glass workers who migrated to Australia during the pre- and post-war periods. Featuring works by artists in the National Art Glass Collection and loans from the Powerhouse Museum, this exhibition highlights the wealth of skill and culture which these skilled migrants brought with them. This has played an integral part in the development of studio art glass practice in this country.
