2017 Auction Donation Form

Thank you for considering a donation to the 2017 GAS Auction!

Held on Saturday, June 3 at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott Hotel, the Silent and Live Auctions will be highlights of the 46th annual conference in Norfolk, VA. The theme for the conference is Reflections from the Edge: Glass, Art, and Performance.

Why Donate?

  • Make a difference: Your donation will help to keep student fees low, support ongoing GAS operations, and help to make the conference possible.
  • Recognition: Auction donors will be recognized in the 2017 GAS Journal and on the GAS website.
  • Visibility: Your work will be on display during the conference before conference attendees (artists, gallery owners, museum professionals, etc.) and members of the public.
  • Chance to Win: All artists who elect to donate 100% of their final sale to GAS will be entered to win a free GAS membership and 2018 full conference pass.

The Live Auction features work from 2017 GAS conference presenters and GAS Board members. Most other donations will be put into the Silent Auction. We encourage artists to bring their donation with them to the conference, packed well enough for carry-out, and hand-deliver it to the auction location during specific times. If this is not possible, artists can ship their work in advance (at their own expense). The GAS office will provide drop off and shipping details closer to the conference date.

We ask that you please email a photo of your work, or a similar/representative work, to info@glassart.org with the subject 2017 Auction Donation. Thank you for your support of the Glass Art Society!
