Our Retrospective Exhibition is a tribute to Mary Clerkin Higgins , a Founding Member, past President, and renowned Conservator of stained glass. The exhibit will feature many panels from prior "American Glass Now" juried exhibits and our Scholarship Auctions. Instrumental in the inception and organization of the American Glass Now exhibition, Mary envisioned a show that would give glass artists the opportunity to experiment, show their skills, be ambitious, have dialogues with fellow artists and show the public what stained and architectural glass could be! Higgins took great satisfaction in knowing that the AGG was making a positive difference in the field and that she was an integral part of AGN project.
Our Retrospective Exhibition will celebrate the positive impact past AGN exhibits and donated art has made towards our Scholarship efforts. We also celebrate Mary’s encouragement and dedication to the transformative, versatile, and evocative medium of glass. The exhibit will be on display during the annual conference in the main lobby of the Corning Museum of Glass, showcasing selected artists an opportunity to share their vision with an expanded public.
