AACG Tours Washington Glass School


The Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass (AACG) held its annual tour weekend in Washington, DC. The AACG is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to further the development and appreciation of art made from glass. The Alliance informs the public, including collectors, critics and curators, by encouraging and supporting museum and art center glass exhibitions and public programs and regional collector groups.

The glass lover group hit the ground running early with visits to area collectors homes; a VIP tour of the Renwick Gallery; a VIP tour of the Kreeger Museum; a special progressive dinner at the Gateway Arts District ‘On the Tracks’ complex featuring the Washington Glass School and Flux Studios.

The Glass School and Flux Studios hosted a huge barbeque for the crowd – where the making of the food was part of the entertainment.

This ain’t no Weber ‘Smokey Joe’ – this is hardcore.

The approx 50-60 strong group of collectors are welcomed to Washington Glass School.

Erwin Timmers’ new works were a favorite of the group.

The tour continued with a brunch at Maurine Littleton Gallery in Georgetown on Sunday.
