Pacific NW Glass Events, past & future

| 0

A big thank you to the many members took turns manning the Guild’s booth at the Portland Rose Festival. They had a good time selling their work and telling folks about the Guild (not shown is Lesley Kelly’s booth)

Bridget Culligan took her flocks of birds to Sorticulture (Everett WA)
Lael Bennett enjoyed good weather and sales at the Wedgwood Arts Festival in Seattle.

The wrapping team for Art In the Garden at Ann Cavanaugh’s worked hard most of the day. For some of the art see a video on Ann’s facebook page and photos on Kevin Kanyo’s Kan Yo Fuse facebook page.

Future events

Two More Picnics!

As mentioned in a previous article, the July 16th Guild Picnic at Rose and Gerald McBride’s just south of Salem OR had a show and tell session following the food with several people bringing “how’d this happen” pieces and educational discussion. You still have a chance for more in-person glass talk at one of the August picnics:

Sunday August 6th at Gail Haskett’s in Battle Ground WA (near Portland NOTE this is a change in place and Date)

Sunday August 13th Karen Seymour’s in Seattle

You don’t need to be a member to attend but please have the courtesy and empathy to contact the host to tell them you are coming so they have enough tables, plates etc.

Candice Pratt

July 27th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm Candace Pratt is having her first Gallery Show opening for “Melting Pot – Vessels for Unity” at the Guardino Gallery, 2939 NE Alberta, Portland, OR. She’s also giving an artist’s talk there August 12th at 2:00 pm. The show goes until August 28th.

Sept 16-17 Lynn McManus will be on the Edmonds WA studio tour 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Open Studios Registration Closes August 29th

The show is September 30 – October 1 in the Portland/Vancouver 5-county area: More information and a list of volunteer positions are mentioned in a previous article and on the Event Listing.

Please send us photos of your glass events!

Having a photo makes it so much easier to invite people to participate in an event next year. If you are part of or go to a glass event please take some photos and send the best 2 to the publicity team (400 to 600 px or “medium” resolution, about 500 KB, not more than 1MB).

General meetings in 2023

Zoom, usually on the 4th Sunday of most months, at 3:30 pm. Contact Rachel Dollar, our VP, if you have suggestions for future topics. You don’t need to be a member to attend our General Meetings but we would love to have you join.
