| 0

Save the date: Meet accomplished glass artists and see their work in various studios throughout the greater Portland Oregon/Vancouver Washington area. 11:00 am to 5:00 pm both days. In mid-September look for a map and artist list on the Event Listing on the calendar which is under News & Events.

Show off your studio, talk glass and sell your work

Studio tours are fun and you get to talk glass in person again. Having some sort of demo helps you tell your story. Visitors are much more interested in your process than at the usual art show and often more likely to buy something.

Members should see Registration information if you wish to be part of this tour either at your own studio or as a guest at someone else’s studio. Registration deadline is August 29th.

Guest Artists Welcome: This year we’ve changed to a $75 site fee paid only by the host who then collects what they consider a fair share of expenses from each of their guest artists. Having multiple artists per site allows visitors to see more artists per mile driven.

Volunteers Needed

Linda Gerrard and Carlyne Lynch have volunteered to organize this event, but we need help in a few areas and are hoping some of you will step up to help make this a great event.


Please let Linda Gerrard know which of the positions you can do:

1) Sign pick-up and drop-off point: Pick which county you are in: Clark, Washington, Multnomah, Clackamas, Columbia
Signs will also be available for pick-up at the August 6th Guild picnic in Battle Ground, WA

2) Pick up signs from our storage unit and distribute them to the county volunteers. Reverse the process after the tour.

3) Social media advertising (what can YOU do: Facebook, Instagram …)

Get an extra bit of publicity and help the Guild. Tour artists who take on one of the volunteer tasks get chosen first to have their art on the flyer.
