Annual Journal 

2015_Journal_cover.jpgThe Journal is a printed, keepsake publication that documents our annual conference through text and photos. It is mailed in the spring to all current members (and to those who attended the conference), and back issues are ordered throughout the year by individuals, libraries, and schools. It has become an invaluable document of the progress and evolution of contemporary glass art. It is also available for download and viewing on the GAS website.

To reserve an ad in the Journal, please print and fax 206.382.2630 or mail in a signed GAS 2017 Norfolk Reservation Form. Please note that the 2017 GAS Journal (Norfolk conference) is published and mailed in the spring of 2018.

Please check back for reservation deadline.

The Glass Art Society reserves the right to deny applications for Technical Display, advertising participation, GAS membership or the conference from anyone for any reason.
