The 2012 American Glass Guild Auction is Ready for Action!

The American Glass Guild is holding its 7th Annual Conference this summer in Pittsburgh, PA.  Conference Registration is now available on line! The auction is an integral part of the AGG and has become one of the highlights of the annual conference. 

Many things happen behind the scenes during the winter months to make our auction a huge success.  Our first step is to reach out to the glass community and ask for your support.  Our annual auction offers our members, conference attendees and the public, the opportunity to support our field and the mission of the AGG by donating to our primary fund-raising event.  Past auctions have consistently featured more than 100 items for sale, including artwork, materials, supplies and services.

The American Glass Guild’s Annual Auction is the sole source of support for the James Whitney Scholarship Fund and also supports the AGG's educational programs. Our decision to name our scholarship fund in memory of Jim Whitney is a reflection of how his zest for life and pursuit of excellence in his craft and art inspired many.  Past recipients have traveled nationally and internationally, honing their skills and knowledge.

Because of your generosity and support, last year's auction raised over

$21,000.00 and 51 Scholarships have been awarded to date.

Please consider donating your artwork, goods or services to the AGG Auction. Your support has and will continue to help subsidize our educational efforts and scholarships awards.  Thank you in advance for your talent and vision.  We have been overwhelmed by the continued generosity from individuals like yourself.

We look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you this July in Pittsburgh!
