Letter From our President, Kathy Jordan

SAVE THE DATE: July 14th - 17th! Our Annual Summer Conference will be held at Corning Museum of Glass in Corning New York. Our conference just so happens to coincide with the International Year of Glass (IYoG 2022) celebration. With an epic location, powerful speakers, demonstrations, workshops, AGG 2022 is shaping up to be an event for the books. Corning Museum of Glass is the world’s largest space dedicated to the display of contemporary art and design in glass. Conference workshops, lectures, demonstrations, and activities will take place at the Museum and at the Radisson Hotel, both within walking distance from one another. In recognition of the International Year of Glass, the AGG will host National and International Speakers covering a wide range of topics including History, Education, Technique, Design, New Window Projects, and Glass Restoration/Conservation along with special sessions on Science and Technology of glass.


We will feature a very special Retrospective Exhibit in honor of the late Mary Clerkin-Higgins. Mary was one of the founding members and past President of the AGG. She spearheaded four impressive, juried exhibitions titled ‘American Glass Now’. Panels from past AGN exhibits along with past and present Whitney Scholarship Auction panels will be on display in the main lobby of the Museum throughout the conference! The exposure and audience will be like no other exhibit we have hosted!


Within CMoG's impressive amphitheater, we will be offering a live-stream virtual component to our conference this year on Friday, July 15th. For more information about our conference, registration, auction, exhibit, and lodging, please visit our website.


As magnificent as the location CMoG may be, it is the human interaction, the gathering of like minds, and the sharing of ideas that is at the heart of the American Glass Guild. Consider bringing your family the summer and explore the Corning area with its charming downtown, restaurants, local shops, scenic places to explore, nearby wineries, and family-friendly activities.


Thank you for renewing your membership and I hope to see ALL of you this summer at Corning Museum of Glass!


Kathy Jordan, President
