Emerging Artist Presentation Award Recipients

BohyunYoon-Image2.jpgEach year the Glass Art Society selects a few emerging artists to make short presentations at its annual conference.  Through these lectures, artists with promising talent are afforded the opportunity to introduce their work to a large audience of established artists, educators, peers, collectors, art historians, and critics. Educators and Museum Curators are asked to nominate individuals who meet certain criteria and those nominees are contacted and requested to submit applications. A jury of professionals review all the applicants and determine the presenters for that conference.

Some of the special conference moments have been captured in photos, like the one at right showing Stephen Rolfe Powell, Lino Tagliapietra, and Dave Walters during Tagliapietra's demo at GAS 2010 Louisville.
