COVID-19 Policy:
We are following CDC recommendations for Multnomah County at this time – “People may choose to wear a mask. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.”

Some of our artists are vulnerable and will require you to wear a mask in their booth; please be prepared to wear one.

Proceeds of art sales on the Ukraine Donation table will be donated to charities helping people affected by the war in Ukraine.

Here’s a piece by Lesley Kelly that will be on that table

Booth applications are now closed but we still need more volunteers to make this work: Fill out the volunteer form to let us know how you want to join the fun and help us pull off another great glass event.

We’re also looking for Portlanders to host out of town glass artists and volunteers for Gathering of the Guilds for the 4 or 5 days of Gathering of the Guilds (May 4-8), please fill out the hosting form and make a new glass friend!

Please contact Lesley Kelly if you have any questions.

There were also many additional volunteers without which the show couldn’t have happened: Shelby Anderson, Kim Graham, Jennifer Hart, Anita Harting, Kevin Kanyo, Teresa Kaufman, Barbara Kienle, Gary Knight, Kari Kugler, Rob Lawrence, Eric True, Mr. Piatt, Debbie Vourtas, Kathie Wise as well as several others whose names didn’t get written down. We thank you all.
