The Board of the Glass Art Society is proud to announce that the GAS Conference will be returning to Corning, in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, June 9-11, 2016. The Corning Museum of Glass will host, and conference participants will experience the museum’s new Contemporary Art + Design Wing, including a 26,000-square-foot light-filled gallery plus an expansive, state-of-the-art Amphitheater Hotshop.
In addition to the excellent content that GAS strives to deliver at all of our conferences, participants will have the opportunity to experience and study the world’s foremost glass collection, explore the extensive holdings of the Rakow Research Library and enjoy historic Corning’s long tradition of glassmaking. The 2016 GAS Conference offers a comprehensive opportunity to expand your understanding of the story of glass. Create your own context for the future of glassmaking with your fellow artists, collectors, manufacturers, scientists, experts, and students at the 2016 GAS Conference in Corning, NY!
We are now accepting proposals for conference presentations including lectures, demonstrations, lec-mos, and panel discussions. GAS invites you to submit presentation ideas that will best highlight the theme, Creating Context: Glass in a New Light.
The deadline for proposals is March 28, 2015.
