Each year at the AGG Conference, the Auction has been one of the highlights of our annual gathering. In fact, it is our organization’s primary source of fundraising. Without your support and the support of manufacturers and suppliers who serve the stained glass community, we could not fulfill our mission. We aim to support those working in our field by providing a wide range of educational and informative experiences, including those offered at our annual Conference.
The American Glass Guild Auction is the sole source of support for the James C. Whitney Scholarship Fund, which has awarded 95 scholarships thus far to worthy recipients, many of whom have traveled nationally and internationally, honing their skills and knowledge.
Past auctions have consistently featured more than 100 items for sale:
• Unique, handcrafted and signed works of art glass and other original artwork
• Historical publications and valuable, sometimes collectible, books on the art and craft of stained glass, art and architecture
• Materials such as hand-blown glass, opalescent art glass, bevels, roundels
• Tools and supplies, such as specialty brushes, vitreous paints, and metals
• Services and gift certificates for specialty workshops and instructional opportunities both here in the US and abroad.
Last year, because of your generosity and support, the American Glass Guild Auction raised over $18,000! If you haven’t already donated to the auction this year, please consider donating your artwork, goods, or services to the 2016 AGG Auction. It’s because of the generous spirit of people like you that makes it possible to move our art form forward through the expansion of our Scholarship Fund.
Thank you in advance for your talent and vision!
We have been overwhelmed by the continued generosity
of individuals like you.
