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 brand new issue of Salt Lake magazine is coming your way! ⁠

We can't wait to share these stories with you. This issue includes our annual Blue Plate Awards celebrating those surviving and thriving in the restaurant biz. Plus, we take a road trip to Wyoming and ask why the only Utah passenger on the Titanic didn’t survive her journey.⁠

A note from our editor Jeremy Pugh, including beautiful tributes to Mary Brown Malouf from our friends in the community, is online now. Read more at the link in our bio ❤️⁠

Subscribers: Look for this issue in your mailbox soon. The magazine will be on newsstands March 1! 📬

Today, we are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2021 Blue Plate Awards! ⁠🎉⁠

These prizes honor the growers, food evangelists, grocers, servers, bakers, chefs, bartenders and restaurateurs who do more than put good food on the table—they make our community a better place to live. This year, just surviving as a local business deserves an award, but each of our Blue Plate winners did more than that. They made us grateful for every person involved in the essential act of feeding us.⁠ 🍽⁠

At the link in our bio, we have the full list of winners, a celebration of feats of COVID creativity and a tribute to restaurants we lost this year. If you’re hungry for more, pick up a copy on newsstands March 1! Plus, check out our Instagram for spotlights on some of the Blue Plate winners. ⁠

This year’s Blue Plate Awards are the first without our beloved Executive Editor Mary Brown Malouf. We dedicate them to her, our town’s biggest food fan, critic and champion. xoxomm⁠ 💙

2021 Blue Plate Award winner: @ricobrandut for Staying in Beansness⁠

It’s a last-minute happy ending for a community leader who literally wears his mission on his sleeve, courtesy a tattoo in bright red block letters: “pay it forward.” 💙⁠

2021 Blue Plate Award winner: @fisherbrewing for Creative Canning⁠

Just hours after being sworn in, President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling for a review of the boundaries for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. The monuments—designated by Barack Obama in 2016 and Bill Clinton in 1996—were reduced by roughly 2 million acres by former president Donald Trump, and the executive order is seen as move towards restoring the original boundaries.⁠
