    Kids Design Glass -
    Kids Design Glass began as an education program at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington. Master glass artists from the museum’s “Hot Shop” selected drawings of mythical monsters by children in local schools and, with the children’s help, transformed the drawings into glass sculptures that combine youthful imagination with the pristine beauty of art glass. The success of the project led to a traveling exhibition of 52 glass sculptures, along with the original drawings that inspired them. This exhibition is on view from January 18, 2014 through May 4, 2014.

Durchgeführt von den Kunstsammlungen der Veste Coburg in Verbindung mit der Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung.
    In den letzten Jahren ist die künstlerische Auseinandersetzung mit dem Werkstoff Glas um viele Facetten bereichert worden. Neben sorgfältig gestalteten und mit höchster Präzision gefertigten Objekten gewinnen Werke mit einem konzeptionellen Ansatz immer mehr an Bedeutung. Eine selbstverständliche Mobilität überwindet nationale Grenzen und Besonderheiten. So ist Europa für viele Künstler aus Amerika und Asien zur neuen Heimat geworden. Ganz neue Lösungen zur Umsetzung künstlerischer Ideen ermöglichen neue Herstellungs- und Bearbeitungstechniken, der universelle Einsatz von Klebstoffen, die Verwendung von Leuchtgasen und die LED-Technik. Immer mehr Maler, Bildhauer und Konzeptkünstler haben den Werkstoff Glas für ihr eigenes Schaffen entdeckt.
    Die begleitende Ausstellung des seit 1977 nun zum vierten Mal ausgerichteten Coburger Glaspreises zeigt in einer europäischen Gesamtschau aktuelle Tendenzen und Strömungen der modernen, sich mit dem Material Glas beschäftigenden Kunst. Zu sehen sind Werke von europäischen oder in Europa geborenen Künstlern.
    Die von einer internationalen Jury ausgewählten Objekte werden vom 13. April bis zum 14. September 2014 in den Räumen der Veste Coburg und des Europäischen Museums für Modernes Glas in Rödental präsentiert.
    Die Fotojury findet vom 13. bis zum 15. September in Coburg statt. Sie entscheidet unter den eingereichten Arbeiten über die Teilnahme an der Ausstellung und am Wettbewerb. Im Anschluss an die Fotojury werden die ausgewählten Künstler innerhalb eines Zeitraums von zwei Wochen benachrichtigt.

    The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass, New York: Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light
    As a painter, Louis C. Tiffany was captivated by the interplay of light and color, and this fascination found its most spectacular expression in his glass "paintings." Through the medium of opalescent glass, Tiffany could actually capture light in color and manipulate it to achieve impressionistic effects. Using new and innovative techniques and materials, Tiffany Studios created leaded-glass windows and lampshades in vibrant colors and richly varied patterns, textures, and opacities. Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light is comprised of three windows, sixteen lamps, and seventy-five pieces of opalescent flat glass that illustrate the rich expanse of color and light available to the artists at the Tiffany Studios.
    Organized by: The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass, New York

    SGAA Artists’ Retreat at The Elms Hotel & Spa Excelsior Springs, Missouri Fly into Kansas City and enjoy a week of art and serenity at The Elms. June 9 – 11, 2014 June 12, 2014 Stained Glass and Winery Tour The Elms Hotel & Spa – SGAA Special Room rate of only $119. Conference Registration Rate $225 Register by January 1 and earn a chance to win a crate of Uroboros “Short Cuts” (50 sq. ft. of glass) at the Portland 2015 Conference. The SGAA Conference Committee visited The Elms two years ago and quickly decided that this was the perfect setting for something different for a conference. The park-like grounds, the serenity of the atmosphere begged for an “artists’ retreat.” This conference will include more hands-on, interactive and contemplative programs, time for reflection and sharing of art and theory. The Conference Committee is also working with the Stained Glass School to provide workshops during the conference rather than prior to the conference. This plan will allow you to spend funds on workshops rather than on extra hotel nights. The annual conference tour will be optional this year, taking place on June 12 and including a tour of area wineries. Conference fee does not include this tour. Tour fee and Stained Glass School classes will be announced. Don’t miss this opportunity to relax your mind and spirit and to reach for something new in your art. - See more at: http://stainedglass.org/?page_id=1074#sthash.ligBmAAc.dpuf

    NDGA 2014 Convention Information July 12-13, 2014 - Wellington, Kansas. The 2014 Convention Chairperson is Pam Meyer. She was also the Chairperson for the 2013 convention. She will be looking for volunteers to work at the Convention, and will be naming a Display Coordinator to handle the displays. Send her an email if you're willing to help. The schedule should be similar to past Conventions, with a general membership meeting on Saturday afternoon, about a half hour after the glass show closes. Seminars on various topics will be presented during the Convention hours, and you know there will be a fantastic array of displays from individual collections. We will post the latest information from the Convention Chairmen as it comes in to us, so check back for updates periodically.
    In case there is any confusion, ALL GLASS LOVERS ARE WELCOME. You do NOT have to be a member of the NDGA to attend this Convention. Come one and all, have some fun, buy some glass and learn a whole lot about American-made glassware. Although the organization name contains the words "Depression Glass", be assured that there will be all kinds of American glass represented.
    The Convention will be held at the High School in Wellington, Kansas, shown at right. Wellington is also the home of the NDGA National Glass Museum, and that is no coincidence. The NDGA invites everyone who attends the Convention to stop by and check out YOUR Museum. The high school is located at 1700 E 16th Street in Wellington.
    The show and sale will open at 10:00am on Saturday, July 12. It will run until 5:00pm, after which there will be a half-hour break, followed by the Annual Membership Meeting of the NDGA (about 1½ hours). Newly elected Board members and Officers will be introduced and sworn in. All NDGA members may participate in the meeting. On Sunday, July 13, the Convention opens at 11:00am and closes at 4:00pm.

  • October 17-18 - Corning, New York
    Corning Museum of Glass Annual Seminar. LALIQUE!. Background:
    The Corning Museum of Glass has received an important collection of approximately 400 objects by the famous luxury glassmaker René Lalique (French, 1860–1945), from Maryland collectors Stanford and Elaine Steppa. Combined with the Museum’s existing holdings of glass objects and wax and plaster models by Lalique, the Glenn and Mary Lou Utt Archive related to Lalique designs for the fragrance industry, the drawings and photographs housed in the Rakow Research Library, the gift of the Steppa Collection makes the Museum a preeminent international repository for the study of Lalique glass. The Museum will showcase its Lalique collection in a major exhibition to be held in 2014.
    The Steppa Collection encompasses a wide range of Lalique’s best-known works including perfume bottles and pressed-glass vases, as well as ashtrays, boxes, clocks, car mascots, lamps, statuettes, inkwells and blotters, and tableware dating primarily to the years between 1912 and 1936. It joins the Museum’s current holdings of 200 objects by Lalique, as well as more than 2,000 photographs and design drawings in the Museum’s public-access Rakow Research Library.
    “This gift significantly broadens our Lalique collection, providing a fantastic overview of the wide range of luxury objects that Lalique’s factory produced during his lifetime,” says curator of modern glass Tina Oldknow. “We look forward to showcasing the full breadth of Lalique’s artistic output in our 2014 exhibition.”
    A highlight of the donated collection is the heavy cire perdue vase called Martins-Pecheurs sur fond de roseaux (Kingfishers on a background of reeds), created in 1930. Cire perdue, or lost wax, is a technique commonly used for casting bronze, and it was mastered by Lalique for creating glass objects. The Museum’s collection contains several original wax molds from the Lalique glassworks, which would have been used to create other unique cire perdue glass vessels, including a mold with the same kingfisher design as the Steppa vase. Other significant objects include the remarkable clock, Le Jour et la nuit (Day and night), and the iconic Art Deco statuette of a dancer.
    Lalique embraced the idea of the Gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art. This concept was reflected in most Art Nouveau interiors, where a single motif or theme might be present on all of the furnishings of a room. Lalique began his career as an innovative Art Nouveau jeweler who incorporated glass into many of his bijouterie creations. The flacons that Lalique designed for well-known parfumiers, such as François Coty, helped to elevate the status of perfume, and propelled French perfume into international luxury markets. cmog.org
