Yes, I'm running late getting the summer issue out: emergency parent care took all my time in June so I decided to wait till after BeCon (the Bullseye Glass Conference) this weekend and give you a report on that. You'll have your new issue soon.
We're working on getting a coupon to local glass exhibits and telling you about fascinating spots to stop on your vacation. Suggestions? Photos? Post them here or on the Facebook page:
We appreciate your interest. Help us make it interesting for you. Here's what we have planned and we'd appreciate hearing what you'd like to see. Comment here (it's moderated so you may not see your words appear immediately) or send email (the group's name @gmail.com).
The spring issue should be out next week
Grow Glass: Increase your collection, your skills, and your knowledge by taking (or giving) a class.
Summer's topic will be "The Glass Tourist", Send info/photos of places you've seen great glass displays, watched masters at work, taken tourist glass classes, walked a glassy art show or gallery ....
Photos of new work, your own or something you found inspiring are always welcome as are photo essays sharing a tip or technique
The world needs more beautiful glass, not less. With the closing/moving of local art glass suppliers a number of talented artists are talking about giving up on glass. This would be an even greater loss. After a discussion at an artist gathering I decided that since I have the tools and skills to put together a newsletter and website I'll donate 3 years of doing that to see if it will help artists afford to continue with this medium. What can --you-- do to help keep the NW glass community strong and preserve/build these skills?
