GASnews, the Glass Art Society newsletter, is published online four times a year for all members (approx. 2,000). Each issue is interactive, allowing visitors to click on ads and be directed to your website. Corporate-, Patron-, and Benefactor-level GAS members receive 10% off one 1/2-column ad per membership per year.
Classified ads appear on a members-only page of the GAS website. New classified ads are e-mailed in a weekly digest to GAS members. Links to the classified ads also appear in GASnews. Classified ads are free to current GAS members, who may e-mail them to with the words CLASSIFIED AD in the subject line. For non-members, there is a $25 fee for a maximum of 250 words + 4 low-res jpgs. There is no deadline.
The annual GAS Journal documents the lectures, presentations and proceedings of the conference, and has become a record showing the progress and evolution of the artists that have created the phenomenon of the contemporary glass movement. It is collected by libraries and organizations around the world and is mailed in the spring to all current members (and to those who attended the conference). Back issues are ordered throughout the year. It is also available for download and viewing on the GAS website. Tech Display vendors receive a 10% discount for Journal advertising (must have participated at most recent conference).*We will not be printing a Journal in 2013.

Marketplace is designed to put glass resources front and center, easy to find and easy to use. It is open to those providing services, equipment, and supplies to glass artists, including publications and organizations. Marketplace ads run November through October, but can be pro-rated for those who have missed the beginning of the cycle.
