Emerging Artists Lecture

Introducing New Talent

Each year the Glass Art Society selects a few emerging artists to present lectures 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 curators are asked to nominate individuals who meet certain criteria, and those nominees are contacted and invited to submit applications. A jury of professionals reviews all the applicants and determines the presenters for that conference. This program is made possible by the Saxe Emerging Artists Lecture Fund.
