This exhibition brings together renowned glass artists Amanda King, Jess Loughlin, Tom Moore, Deb Jones, Matthew Larwood, Christine Cholewa, Tim Edwards, Clare Belfrage, Karen Cunningham, Penny Fuller, B. Jane Cowie and Gabriella Bisetto in a celebration of the independent glass studio Blue Pony. Established in 1997 and closing its door in 2011, Blue Pony was an iconic Adelaide studio that was home to a diverse group of artists throughout its 14 year history. This exhibition presents a survey of these artists and the unique relationships of the studio and community based approach to glass practice. “How to operate as a group is something between a mystery an experiment but I still choose it. We had some revelations: We decided that just because you can divide a space with a tape measure, that’s not necessarily the best way. We discussed things that were less tangible, the things that usually get ignored because they’re too hard to measure. We decided to make all our decisions based on what ‘the other’ person needed. We abandoned the notion of equal. The reality is that nothing is equal. Not input, not space, not life. We remained fiercely independent and cared enormously about each other.” Deb Jones. A Blue Pony publication will be launched highlighting some of the memorable moments and activities of the Studio.
