Omni William Penn Hotel, Pittsburgh, PA
July 20-22, 2012
The American Glass Guild is excited to organize its first Juried Members Exhibit concurrent with our seventh annual conference, to be held at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA, July 20-22, 2012.
The exhibit will be one of the highlights of the conference, with an opening reception and unveiling scheduled for the morning of July 20, 2012. Noted historian Virginia Raguin organized the jury.
We are delighted to announce the twelve artists selected. They are (in alphabetical order): David Fode, Marie Foucault-Phipps, Mary Clerkin Higgins, Barbara Krueger, Ellen Mandelbaum, Nancy Nicholson, Scott Ouderkirk, , Nicholas Parrendo, , Betti Pettinati-Longinotti, , Hallie Monroe Richards, Patrick Reyntiens and Patrice Heinz Schelkun.
One mission of the AGG is to create opportunities to enhance the public’s appreciation of the medium of stained glass and to inspire our members to show the best of their artwork. Though this exhibit will be up for only 3 days, our aim in the future is to arrange longer shows at galleries and other venues, and for that to happen we must show that we have an ambitious track record.
Planning has already begun for the 2013 show in St. Augustine, which will be up approximately one month and, depending on the available space there, we hope to include some of the works accepted into the Pittsburgh show, while also jurying a new show. Artists can build their resumes and clientele by exposure and publicity as part of our juried shows. We have many passionate and serious artists in our organization and we want the world to see their exciting work.
