For the first time the American Glass Guild will offer a Juried Exhibit concurrent with our seventh annual conference, to be held at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA, July 20-22, 2012.

This is an opportunity for our members to develop and exhibit their finest work. The exhibit will be one of the highlights of the conference, with an opening reception scheduled for the morning of July 20, 2012. Noted historian Virginia Raguin will organize the jury.

The works will be exhibited on a balcony in the hotel (see above images). The curtains will be removed for the exhibit. The public will be able to view the show from the ground floor and conference goers will have access to the balcony. Artists should consider the viewing distance when designing. There is limited space, so therefore a limited number of artists will be selected.

We invite all American Glass Guild members to submit a design concept in the form of a drawing/sketch/watercolor, along with 5 digital images representative of your work. The maximum width and height per panel is 3’ feet, although panels can be smaller than that.

Submissions should be sent electronically to with the words "Pittsburgh Juried Exhibit" in the subject line by February 15, 2012, no exceptions.

Accepted artists will be notified by February 29th, 2012. Panels must be completed and photographed by June 15, 2012 in order to be exhibited. All panels must be framed and ready for hanging.

Delivery and insurance costs are the responsibility of the individual artist. The AGG shall not be responsible for any damage or theft. The show will come down after 12PM on Sunday, July 22, 2012, and all panels must remain in the show until then. The artists are responsible for removing their panels at the end of the exhibit.

Applicants must be a member of the AGG and all dues must be current.

If you would like to have your panel included in the American Glass Guild Auction, which benefits the Whitney Scholarship Fund and our educational programs, this can be arranged.

If you would like to sell your piece, AGG will handle the sale, with a 25% commission, which will go to the AGG educational program fund.

There is no obligation to sell or to donate.

All submissions must include the following:

1. Full Name

2. Design Concept Image, with a brief, one paragraph, written description.

3. Five images representative of your work. (Format: jpeg at 72dpi and no larger than 800 pixels in either direction. File size must not exceed 1mb in size.)

4. Image List - Title, Size, Brief Description, Year Created
