Glass Artists of Western Australia (GAWA) is a community of glass artists in Western Australia, aimed at promoting glass art and collaborating on exhibitions, events and all things glass.
GAWA began when a group of like minded glass artists got together after the hugely successful National Glass Exhibition “Flair” which was held in Perth in 2014. A Facebook page was set up to allow glass artists to communicate, to share images, information and to connect to the wider community. The Facebook page took off with followers from all over the world checking in to ‘like’ the posted content.
A core group of people have been working together to facilitate opportunities for glass artists in Western Australia. The aim has been to bring the different disciplines of glass together to the WA public with the purpose of increasing awareness and appreciation of the studio glass art form.
