Opening Reception June 20, during the 2015 American Glass Guild Conference.
The American Glass Guild is very pleased to announce the artists selected for the juried show, American Glass Now: 2015.
The 17 artists are: Kathy Barnard, Joseph Cavalieri, Marie Foucault Phipps, Saara Gallin, Anthony Glander, Nancy Gong, Mary Higgins, J. Kenneth Leap, Ellen Mandelbaum, Sean Merchant, Troy Moody, Nancy Nicholson, Scott Ouderkirk, Nicolas Parrendo, Richard Prigg, Patrice Schelkun and Amy Valuck.
Our thanks to the jury – Virginia Raguin (Professor of Art History at College of the Holy Cross), Judith Schaechter (Artist and Educator at University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA Academy of the Arts, and the NY Academy of the Arts), and Cynthia Williams (Director of the Smithsonian-Mason MA in the History of Decorative Arts) for their work in selecting the exhibitors.
The show was held at the Washington National Cathedral from May 1st to September 15th, 2015. It was received with so much success that they have invited the AGG to present the exhibition every year!
Juror Judith Schaechter was the sole juror attending the 10th annual AGG Conference, June 19-21 . She reviewed and critiqued the finished panels and presented two American Glass Guild AGNX Awards for Excellence in the Art of Stained Glass to winners Marie Foucault-Phipps and Troy Moody. Their panels were chosen considering creative use of materials, original expression, aesthetic impact, clarity of narrative, and complexity of execution. Congratulations to Marie and Troy!
