Letter From our President, Kathy Jordan

It has been an amazing opportunity to represent the American Glass Guild as their President. This will be my third and final term and will conclude at our 16th Annual Summer Conference at Corning Museum of Glass this July 14-17. There is still time to join the American Glass Guild, take a workshop and network with the Glass Art community! By popular demand, we have added an additional painting workshop with Derek Hunt from Limelight Studios, Norwich, UK. The Corning Museum is a nonprofit educational institute that preserves and expands the world’s understanding of glass. Immerse yourself and explore 45,000 objects representing 35 centuries of glass art and history, a floor dedicated to glass science and innovation, a Contemporary Art + Design Wing, the largest hot glass demonstration space in the world AND the American Glass Guild Conference! I can not begin to tell you how impressive this conference event will be. The Glass Community will come together with a prestigious list of glass luminaries, leaders and scholars holding doctoral degrees and are referenced in the ‘Who’s who in the World’ that have shaped the course of glass art & research. These individuals teach our future glass artists and scientists. We have invited Historians, Authors, recipients of Getty, and Guggenheim grants, National Endowments, Fellowships, Art & Film Festival Awards. Their works are owned by museums, installed in public spaces and private collections. Many are traveling a great distance and bring extraordinary talent, elite resumes, and international recognition.

This all culminates during the International Year of Glass 2022.

To all of my extended glass family, glass enthusiasts, museum lovers, artists and educators, join me and the AGG community at Corning to explore, collaborate, create and celebrate!


Paint with light! Kathy Jordan, President
