Call for Presentation Proposals for the Glass Art Society 2012 Toledo, OH Conference

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Studio Glass "Roots" in America Glass Art Society 42nd Annual Conference
Toledo, Ohio, June 13-16, 2012


The Glass Art Society Board of Directors is requesting proposals for lectures, demonstrations, lec-mo's and panels for the Toledo, Ohio conference relating to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Studio Glass "Roots" in America.

In recognition of the Toledo Museum of Art's role as the cradle of the American Studio Glass Movement, GAS will be holding its 2012 conference in Toledo, Ohio. In 1962, two experimental glass workshops held at the Museum proved that glass was a medium suitable for the expression of artistic ideas in a studio environment. They launched a movement that was propelled by an unprecedented collective enthusiasm and since has turned into an international phenomenon that continues to inspire experimentation. Toledo, America's Glass City, is welcoming again artists from around the world to celebrate the achievements of the past and to explore the seemingly endless possibilities of glass. Proposal submissions should recognize this historic year for studio glass, while reflecting the innovative spirit, diverse viewpoints, and current concerns of the Glass Art Society community at large.

- Online through the GAS website
- or on Disc mailed to the GAS office

Please visit the webpage for complete details including:
  • DESCRIPTION of the theme and location - Toledo, OH
  • SUBMISSION GUIDELINES  - What to submit and How 
  • SUBMIT your proposal online if submitting more than one you will need to make separate submissions for each  

Please contact the GAS office at with any questions or call Monday-Friday PST 9am-5pm.

The Glass Art Society is a 501c3 non-profit professional organization whose purpose is to encourage excellence, to advance education, to promote the appreciation and development of the glass arts, and to support the worldwide community of artists who work with glass.
