The GAS Auction has become one of the highlights of the annual conference, and we hope you consider donating a piece of your artwork, goods or services. Your donation helps subsidize half-price student fees and keeps all registration fees affordable. Expected to be one of the largest GAS auctions ever with many donors and buyers, it will also be a great opportunity for exposure of your work. Twenty five pieces will be selected for the Live auction from pieces created by 2009 Corning Conference presenters and GAS Board members. Five surprise pieces will be selected from the items donated for the auction by other member artists to the Glass Art Society.

This year donating artists have the choice to give 100% to GAS, or to receive 25% or 40% of the selling price. Your donation will be on exhibit throughout the conference and acknowledged in the 2009 Glass Art Society Journal.
