The exhibition will showcase over 120 works of glass art by 40 NCAGG members and also includes “The Secret Life of Glass Artists”, a smaller exhibition that celebrates creativity and inspiration by bringing a glass artist’s studio to the Glenview Mansion, displaying materials, tools, equipment, and resources used by artists. The show also includes the Jurors Panel on April 17, 2014, 7:30 – 9 p.m., during which the exhibition’s jurors will discuss the art glass jury process and the criteria for this exhibit, and provide their personal views concerning collecting art glass.
