For those of you more familiar with this format, join the conversation, follow interesting topics and get answers to questions on the American Glass Guild’s Bulletin Board. Find out more about the Bulletin Board, with instructions on how to register here .
We now have two distinct Facebook pages. At the primary American Glass Guild FaceBook page you will find news of general interest to our membership and the public which includes published works / installations, issues, events and exhibitions – what’s happening in the world of “flat glass art work,” plus announcements of AGG events, etc. The primary FaceBook page is our “magazine” for the world to see.
Also check out and join our American Glass Guild Discussion Group page, where you can post questions on specific topics, discuss issues of interest, post images for discussion, or offer studio items for sale or exchange to others.
You’ll find notices of upcoming classes and exhibition opportunities. Neither page should be used to post “Like my page” entries. Think of the discussion page as a place to discuss the nuts and bolts of working in the field for a
maker, designer, conservator etc.
We do not wish to be in the business of promoting individual artists or studios. These pages will be monitored for inappropriate postings. These pages will be monitored and managed by: Nancy Gong, Vicki Ireland, Nonnie Lestkos, with posting from Patrice Schelkun, Kathy Jordan, Tom Krepcio and Judith Schaechter, all FaceBook Administrators. Submissions for published work via a link or class announcements via pdf should be sent with a link to firstname.lastname@example.org. Postings will be at the discretion of the Administrators.
LinkedIn is a social media site used by professionals and businesses to connect. We now have an American Glass Guild LinkedIn group. Posts will be targeted to a professional market of glass professional and professionals in affiliate fields including glass art professionals, glass enthusiasts, specifiers and other trades people. Become a part of this network of professionals! Submit posts for LinkedIn to Vicki Ireland.
Under consideration for the future is the the addition of AGG presence on Twitter and Instagram. All social media including the Bulletin Board will be cross linked to one another and the AGG website.
Flickr is a photo sharing social media platform, allowing the American Glass Guild to upload photos of an event or exhibition in full resolution. These high res photos are eye candy for us artists, giving us the ability to really look at our peers work, or appreciate a smile on a friends face during a conference. Whatever the reason, the AGG Flickr page is a great place to visit to check out our recent events and what our membership base is up to.
