GAS Conference 2016

The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, USA
Date: 09.06.2016 - 11.06.2016
The Board of the Glass Art Society was proud to return the GAS conference to Corning, in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.

The Corning Museum of Glass served as host, and conference participants experienced the museum’s new Contemporary Art +Design Wing, including a 26,000-square-foot light-filled gallery plus an expansive, state-of-the-art Amphitheater Hot Shop.

In addition to content and events featured at most GAS conferences, participants also had the opportunity to experience and study the world’s foremost glass collection, explore the extensive holdings of the Rakow Research Library, and enjoy historic Corning’s long tradition of glassmaking.

The 2016 GAS Conference encouraged attendees to expand their understanding of the story of glass, and create their own context for the future of glassmaking with fellow artists, collectors, manufacturers, scientists, experts, and students.
