ARTE LAGUNA PRIZE AMAZES AGAIN
Venice, 29 September 2010 - Two months before the application’s deadline, the Arte Laguna Prize expandes the opportunities for its artists, a new special prize is created in collaboration with the Scuola del Vetro Abate Zanetti, in Venice: a residence for an artist for one month in the important glass school based in Murano.
This initiative represents an unique opportunity to discover and to explore the techniques of working the glass and to the winning artist it will give the opportunity to express his creativity in close contact with the glass masters in the perfect venue for the glass production and for the education of this fascinating technique, heir of a millenary tradition.
The Scuola del Vetro Abate Zanetti, chaired by Commendatore Guido Ferro, is now more than ever the meeting place between the past and the future of glass art, guardian of the tradition and the technical ability, but also the meeting point of multiple realities of the contemporary glass, looking to the world of design, culture and art.
A place where, beyond the traditional teaching of the glass, it does refsearch and testing, focusing on the themes of the artistic vanguard and the glass design; a place that proposes cultural events and creates an affinity of language and glass sensitivity in line with the international vocation of Venice.
The hospitality of the winner is offered by ACCA HOTEL, in his welcoming and fined spaces in the heart of Venice. The owner, Luca Bigozzi, always sensitive to the contemporary art world, wanted to contribute to this important news, confirming once again the real commitment of Arte Laguna to support emerging artistic talents, not only in economic terms but also with specific training courses, aimed to develop their creative abilities.
The residency in Venice will end with an exhibition about the work and his path created by the artist during his stay in order to give high visibility to his creations.
To this Special Prize - application will close on the 28th October 2010 - can participate all artists of all sections of the competition, participating with at least two works, even if they are already registered in recent months.
With this new Special Prize, the Fifth edition of the International Art Prize Arte Laguna now is enriched with a new opportunity for the many artists who are enrolling in these months. The artist residencies and stays, in Italy and abroad, at major festivals and exhibitions are all designed by Arte Laguna for giving to their artists the opportunity to face up to the world of parallel realities of art, in the perspective of maturation of their artistic experience as a professional growth.
