Rebecca Hartman Kearns
Rebecca Hartman Kearns, a graduate of the South Australian School of Art, is an exciting artist working in the field of glass.
Rebecca has exhibited in a variety of national galleries such as Adelaide Festival Centre, Jam Factory Contemporary Craft and Design Centre and the SA Museum's Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize, Apotz Cruz, Hahndorf Academy and Amy Worth Gallery. Rebecca also had a solo show during the 'Art in the East End, Come Out Festival' where she was awarded the Mancorps Critics Choice Award.
In 2005 the International Glass Art Society Conference was hosted in Adelaide where Rebecca was awarded third prize in the International Student Exhibition. This international recognition of her unique and original work resulted in an invitation to exhibit in a two-person show 'Aurora Australis' at the Luniverre Gallery, Paris. In 2009 Rebecca was one of three Australian glass artists to be invited to exhibit in 'Glashart 2009' held in the Netherlands which resulted in her work being collected to appear in the prestigious Bragotti Gallery, Amsterdam.
Rebecca's work has appeared in publications such as Craft Arts International as well as the prestigious New Glass Review 26 and again in edition 28, where 895 artists from 40 countries submitted work to be chosen and her work was one of only 100 to be published.
Her passion for exploring new ideas and creative ways of pushing past boundaries in her making process, concept development and presentation, has resulted in Rebecca establishing a significant profile as a South Australian artist.
