The Glass Gathering Art Show (GGAS) is an annual, one-day exhibition of glass artwork in cold, warm and hot glass categories. Its mission is to support and encourage the growth of artists working in glass. It provides a professionally executed and adjudicated artistic forum devoted to glass as a medium.
The GGAS is divided into two events occurring simultaneously; a juried-entry division, and an open entry exhibition of glass art works. Both divisions are viewed and evaluated by a guest juror with ribbons given for first and second place in each category. Cash prizes are awarded for Best in Show, Technical Merit and People's Choice. Join us as we celebrate glass art!
