We’ve enjoyed another amazing year and as 2018 comes to a close, we’re asking for your continued support of the glass community by contributing to our Scholarship Fund and Maestro Program Fund. Your contributions allow us to:
Provide educational opportunities for San Francisco Area artists.
Bring world-class guest artists to the Bay Area.
Provide funding to non-profit glass organizations for educational programs.
Our scholarship funding this year went to two students participating in Palo Alto High School’s Glass Program: Audrey Fulker and Maya Reamey. Maya is attending University of California at Santa Barbara and Audrey is attending the University of Colorado. Palo Alto High School is one of only a handful of high schools in the U.S. with a glass arts program. GLANC also sponsored three artists for our Maestro Program; providing demonstrations and artist talks for our group.
GLANC members participated in and supported a variety of events this year, including:
Visit to Marvin Lipofsky's studio;
Oben Abright Studio Visit;
Sponsored artist talk with April Surgent as part of GLANC’s Maestro Program
