Kirra Galleries opened in 1997 and for more than a decade now, have focused on building the finest commercial exhibition galleries focussing on glass, sculpture and jewellery artworks in Australia. They now have an established reputation as leaders in the Australian Contemporary Art Glass Movement.
Kirra Galleries hold a number of exhibitions each year highlighting the incredible diversity of Australian art glass as well as works by artists working in a variety of different media.
Kirra Galleries is proud to announce its 10th Consecutive Exhibition at the annual SOFA Expo in Chicago.
As you may know, SOFA (Sculpture, Objects, and Functional Art) is an annual event held at Navy Pier in Chicago in late October/early November for four days. It is a prestigious event as appearance is by invitation only, and currently we are the only Australian gallery exhibiting out of the 70 international galleries from 11 countries. Overall, more than 800 artists will participate in the four day event that begins with the Opening Night VIP Preview on Thursday, October 31st from 5 to 9pm.
Many of the artists (listed above) whose work we will be exhibiting, have personally decided to join our staff in Chicago. We are hopeful that this year as in previous years we will be successful and make Australia proud.
We would like to express our gratitude to the Australian Government and the Australia Council for the Arts for their support.
