Rochester High School: In need of glass scraps for Mosaic Project.

| 0

Hello PNW Glass Guild,

My name is Nolan Wagner. I teach Visual Art at Rochester High School. I am here to ask if there is an artist who would be willing to donate glass scraps for a mosaic project. While at the OPA and Guilds Showcase, I saw a beautiful mosaic by Kory Dollar, and it inspired me to try  to do a mosaic project with my students. Previously, I had a friend who talked about how much fun they had doing stained glass in HS, so I was looking for a good way to incorporate glass art into my curriculum.

I’m hoping to make mosaics with my Advanced Art class. I have 15 students, and I’m thinking our projects will be 8×10 inches. Is there anyone between the South Sound and Portland area(within 1.5 hours of Chehalis, WA) who can donate glass, or sell for a discounted price?

Contact Info: 360-880-6903,  (Email or text message will work)

Thank you for your consideration,

Nolan Wagner

I am closing my shop after 20 years. My name is Sue Firpo, SL Firpo Design Craft.  The shop is located in Portland, Oregon . 5660 N Greeley, Bay B. We have some gorgeous Yougiogheny art glass sheets, and some vintage ( 1970’s) Bulleye glass sheets ( approx. 20″ x 30″) to sell, as well as assorted others. We also have boxes of smaller pieces that would be great for lamps or mosaics. Our shop created leaded glass work and wood working. So I have some woodworking tools to sell as well. Too much to list.

I am retiring as a fused glass artist and am interested in selling my glass (mostly Bullseye) and equipment. I have about 80 colors of mostly full sheet glass (opalescent, transparent, streaky); about 80 colors of frit (coarse, medium, fine); many, many colors of stringers and rods; a variety of slumping molds. I would love to jump start your glass artistry and am willing to negotiate a very steep discount for the individual who wants to purchase my entire inventory.

Volunteer Opportunities on the Gathering of the Guilds LLC Board

| 0

Lesley Kelly,, 503-816-3981.  Please see the information below on volunteer opportunities with the LLC that puts on the Gathering of the Guilds show each year.

Gathering of the Guilds LLC – Board openings for this year and 2025

The Gathering of the Guilds is a huge show with over 300 artists in 60,000 sq ft of space at the Oregon Convention Center.  This year’s show is April 19-21.  It is a high-end show with over 15,000 attendees each year.  To date, a small group of people have been running the show, but it is time for new blood.  This is a chance to play a key role in managing this impressive show.

What we need

  1. Image Manager– this is for the 5Gs and urgent we find someone quickly.  We have money in the budget for a stipend.  Last year’s image manager will explain the job in detail but the main requirement is the ability to edit artists’ photos of their work.
  2. Treasurer– need for 2025 that ideally, could work with me this year to learn.
  3. Secretary– I can keep this role this year if needed but again, taking this on for 2024 would help a lot and be a good to start building our 2025 board.
  4. Guild Representatives– We are good for this year but ideally current representatives would identify someone from their Guild to replace them when the time comes.

If interested or questions, contact your Guild representative or Roger Crooks


Background – The GOTG LLC was established in 2020 to run the show.  Prior to that, individual Guilds were the bank for the show which was not a good model.  The LLC is made up of a 10-person board, 4 non-voting core members and 6 voting members (one from each Guild).    The 4 core members run the LLC and the 6 voting members decide on issues.  A core member can also be a Guild representative.


What is needed

We have a full board for 2024 but we still could use some help for this year’s show.  We also need to identify the board for 2025.  As you can see from below, we need some new blood to learn the roles and responsibilities for putting on this huge show.

President – Tai Vautier has been the president since the LLC was formed.  If anyone is interested in the role, let us know.

VP – Dawn Panttaja has been the VP since the LLC was formed.  If anyone is interested in the role, let us know.

Secretary – Roger Crooks has been the Secretary since the LLC was formed. Would be great if someone would take on this role for 2024 and 2025. The job is fairly easy.  The secretary’s job is to publish the agenda for board meetings, conduct the meeting and publish the minutes. If anyone is interested in the role, let us know.

Treasurer – Roger Crooks will be the treasurer for 2024 but not for 2025.  We need this role identified for 2025 and ideally they would work with Roger for 2024 to learn the role.  Technically this is the most demanding role.

Image Manager – while not a board position, we need someone to manage the images of the artists’ works for use in promotional activities.  This is an urgent need for this year.  A stipend is available for this position.  Ability to edit and manipulate graphic files is required.

Reminder: Seattle Guild Potluck Picnic

This Sunday August 13th, 11 am

It’s always lots of fun and you don’t want to miss it! 5415 Greenwood Ave N, near the Zoo in Seattle. It’s the house with the grape trellis in front. Come down the alley on the south side of the house and up the 3 steps into Karen Seymour’s shady backyard.

Please bring a dish that can feed about 8 people and if you wish something other than water to drink, bring that too. You don’t need to be a member: spouses and friends who are willing to talk glass or at least listen are all welcome.

Bring some of your glass for show and tell, even that odd piece you’ve been wondering about: there will probably be several experienced troubleshooters to help diagnose it.

Please let Karen know that you’re coming so we have enough chairs etc..
