We are preparing an exhibition for you about the legendary B. A. G. glassworks in Vsetín. The opening ceremony of the exhibition with special guests and with a concert by the well-known accordionist Petr Bazala will take place on Sunday 12 June, from 3 pm in the Vsetín Chateau.

The exhibition is held on the occasion of two anniversaries; 30 years since the founding and 20 years since the demise of the legendary glassworks in Vsetín-Bobrky.The progressive glassworks was built by Glass Service together with the joint-stock company Deza. The glass products bore the Bohemia Art Glass trademark. In 1998 the glassworks was bought by an Italian company and renamed Barovier and Toso Czech Republic s. r. o. (the trademark has changed to B. A. G. Art Glass in Progress). Production at the Vsetín glassworks was terminated in 2002.

The glassworks cooperated with renowned designers and glass masters. The handmade production included original blown and densely shaped drinking and table glass; occasionally exterior glass and under the Italian owners lighting glass too. B. A. G. glass is famous for its design "for joy and pleasure". Playfulness, wit and colorful vital colors are inherent in utilitarian glass created by artistic director B. A. G. Jiří Šuhájek and the then-beginning glass designer Rony Plesl. In addition to the official production in the glassworks, thanks to the creative atmosphere, also original studio glass was created (for example objects by J. Šuhájek).

In addition to the design production of B. A. G., the exhibition also presents photographs by Zlatuše Müller, Aleš Mynář and Milan Ošťádal. The exhibition also includes a redesign of B. A. G.'s products by students of the the Applied Arts Secondary Vocational School of Glassmaking in Valašské Meziříčí and art glass designs by a teacher MgA. Josef Divín.
