Letter from the President 

This newsletter is very late in coming but the summer has been a bit hectic for all.

We have only a few days to submit show entries for our annual members show at Studio 21 in Spanish Village. I hope to see a record number of submissions and welcome all of our new members to participate. This show has always included all levels of experience so do not be intimidated if you have never shown or are just starting to work with glass. We have some great prizes for all including a novice category. Details below.

You are all encouraged to come to the celebration at
The Point Loma library on Saturday (see event below) September 20th to see our educational exhibit showing many techniques in glass and enjoy the Library's Eleventh Anniversary.

Don't forget the Fall Patio Sale on October 11 and 12! If you have not attended one of these, you are missing out on some great gifts or items to add to your personal collection

Cheers, my friends!!!

Artist's Talk July 10, 2014

by Kathleen Mitchell

One of the two Education Committee events for July was the informative, dynamic, fascinating talk by Jamex and Einar de la Torre at The FRONT, Casa Familiar in San Ysidro.  A large group of AGASC members met at my studio in Barrio Logan, and we formed lively carpools and headed down to the border.


Walking into the gallery was a truly mesmerizing experience.  The lenticular panels captivated the viewer, drawing you in, breathtaking in their depth.  The freestanding sculptures were extraordinarily complex upon close examination.  The manipulated border photographs, graphic and thought provoking.


The brothers held court and spoke not only about the technical complexity of the lenticular panels but the unique perspective they share as bi-national artists.  They took all questions and stayed long after the formal event to meet all attendees and provide additional insight.


We are so fortunate to have such international superstars right in our backyard!




We are very excited to announce another
new Sponsor member!

    The James Edgar & Jean Jessop Hervey Pt Loma Library located at 3701 Voltaire St., San Diego, CA 92107. The AGASC Glass exhibit is August 4 - October 4th, 2014. The library has coordinated our show with a floral exhibit by The Pt. Loma Garden Club, designed to compliment the art, similar to "Art Alive" at SDMA. In addition, The Friends of the Library are celebrating the 11th Anniversary of the new library building. It is a beautiful library and an exciting opportunity to expand our exposure in the community. 

The reception will include live music, including the Internationally acclaimed Queen of Boogie Woogie, Sue Palmer, an amazing piano/keyboard player from Point Loma. We hope to see you there!

This Educational Exhibit focuses on several art glass techniques including fused, blown, flame worked, cast, cold worked, mosaic, dichroic & image transfer. Some pieces combine multiple techniques. A special feature is technical explanations have been provided by each artist about how they made their pieces.


Exhibit - August 4th - October 4th
Hanging - August 4th, 11:30 am. (You will set up your own display).
Reception - Date TBA (In coordination with the Pt. Loma Garden Club & The
Friends of the Library).
Take Down - Saturday, October 4, 11:30 - 1 pm.

Artists Reception of the 
AGASC show at the Front Porch Gallery  

    The AGA show at the Front Porch Gallery was a wonderful venue for our members to exhibit their work. Located in downtown Carlsbad just a block from the Ocean, a destination for tourists and offers great visibility. The displays were artfully put together to highlight the assortment of sculpture, wall art, plates and jewelry made by our members. The exhibit was up for six weeks and sales included a couple of large curves and some smaller pieces and jewelry. We are grateful for this second opportunity to work with the Front Porch Gallery and hope to have another show AGA show with them in 2015.
