Cutting Light

An exhibition of new work by glass artist Jessamy Kelly
29th May – 19th June 2010

Queen’s Gallery,
160 Nethergate,
Dundee, DD1 4DU

A solo exhibition of new work by glass artist Jessamy Kelly will open at the prestigious Queen’s Gallery, in Dundee in May 2010. The material quality of glass and its reaction to light intrigues glass artist Jessamy Kelly; she harnesses the light in her work by cutting away the glass to reveal the inherent luminosity if the material. Minimal amounts of cutting and engraving are used to shape her sculptural work. Jessamy’s work shows balance, precision and great delicacy. Jessamy has recently completed her PhD in Glass and Ceramics at the University of Sunderland and is currently Artists in Residence at Edinburgh College of Art. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK as well as internationally in France, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and the United States. She has won many awards including the Craft and Design Magazine Maker of the Year Award in 2009.

This exhibition is part of the new national initiative Craft Festival Scotland conceived by the Past Present and Future Craft Practice researchers at the University of Dundee.
