Art Show: Glass Art Guild of Utah Kicks Off Annual Glass Show and Market at Red Butte Garden, just in time for the holidays.

 

[Salt Lake City, UT, September, 2019] Artists of the Glass Art Guild of Utah (GAGU) are looking forward to the annual glass art show at Red Butte Garden in Salt Lake City, Utah. Visit us November 2 through December 17 during regular garden hours to find a variety of artisan-crafted and one-of-a-kind art pieces and gifts. Open to the public and free admission to the art show!

 

Our Artists’ Reception, where you can meet the artists, is on Saturday, November 2, from 2 to 5 pm.

 

Who We Are: The Glass Art Guild of Utah is a community of artists working cooperatively to support, promote and develop warm glass art forms by serving the educational, networking and informational needs of our members. Many artist members are local and national award-winners for their art and educational contributions to the warm-glass artistry.

 

Non-Profit Organization: The Glass Art Guild of Utah is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing a forum to increase exposure and appreciation of glass art in our community, and as a networking opportunity for artists and patrons of art glass.

Our Mission

  • We promote professional glass artists residing in the state of Utah.
  • We encourage emerging resident glass artists to achieve their professional goals.
  • We provide entry into local art festivals, events and shows.
  • We provide educational opportunities for both glass artists and the public. Classes and workshops are taught by local and nationally acclaimed glass artists.
  • We solicit and obtain grants and other funding to assist artists in the development of their art.

 

What is warm glass or kiln-formed glass? Fused or warm glass is actually the oldest type of glass art known to man, but the least well known. Most historians believe that the first glass fusing and kiln casting was done by the ancient Mesopotamians in 2000 BC. Egyptians and Romans were the most prolific, and examples of their work can be viewed in museums around the world.

Heating glass in a kiln is the basis of warm glass art. The processes create a variety of different artistic and functional products based on a range of temperature work, such as fusing, slumping and casting.

Glass Artists available for interview or television demonstrations:

If your media organization is interested in showcasing warm-glass artists via your media outlet, please contact Andrea Malouf to schedule an interview or television demonstration with our award-winning artists.

A holiday letter from our editor, Mary Brown Malouf:⁠

"It’s the season for celebration. And let’s face it—it was a bad year for cheer. Nevertheless, though masked and socially distanced, we will join together again this year in love and joy for one another. We will clink glasses, feast, toast to a better future and enjoy what we have, taking care to live in the moment. Remembering the good times in the midst of the not-so-good and pledging to support one another."⁠

Have a wonderful and safe holiday. Cheers! 🥂⁠

Happy Friday! We all know the best way to celebrate the end of the week is with a cocktail 😉! ⁠

🍸 And our next highlighted cocktail is the perfect way to start your weekend. @alibislc's 'Far From The Tree' by Clif Reagle:⁠

1.5 oz. @shdistillery Bourbon⁠
1.5 oz. Utah Honey and Akane Apple Shrub⁠
.25+ oz. @waterpocketdistillery Snow Angel .25 oz. lemon juice⁠
Barspoon of simple syrup⁠
2 dashes Regans Orange Bitters⁠
Combine in shaker over ice, shake and strain into a footed glass. Serve with dried apple garnish.⁠

“My goal for this drink was to make it with as many local ingredients as possible,” says Reagle, “and seeing as the farm scene is pretty quiet in November I decided to go with a classic method of fruit preservation: the shrub.⁠

Yes. Thanksgiving is going to be different this year. So instead of stressing out to prepare a meal, help support local restaurants who need our love this Thanksgiving. 🦃⁠

Restaurants are doing what they can to make this Thanksgiving seamless for us. With offerings of curbside pick up, meal kits, and even delivery, ordering out this Thanksgiving seems like a no-brainer.⁠

Oh and did we mention no family-sized mess to clean up afterward? That’s a win-win in our book. 😉 Check the link in bio for full list of restaurants. 🍽️

Did you know that the first woman to cast a ballot in the United States voted right here in Salt Lake City?

In 1870, on her way to work as a schoolteacher, Seraph Young stopped by SLC’s old City Hall—right across from the Capitol—and made history as the first woman to vote under a women's equal suffrage law.

Like many of us, Young voted early in that election simply because she had to get to work on time. Her story reminds us of the power ordinary people have to make history. Now, get out and vote!
