SGS Auction – 2nd October 2010.

A Live Auction in Aid of the Scottish Glass Society.

As part of a programme of events celebrating the 400th Anniversary of glass in Scotland, the Scottish Glass Society will be holding a live auction of contemporary glass art on Saturday 2nd October 2010 at Edinburgh College of Art.

The SGS Committee are calling for submissions from glass artists across Scotland and the UK for a Live Auction of glass works and related subjects. The auction aims to raise funds to support the Society in its continued provision of new and adventurous exhibition opportunities that showcase excellence in Scottish Glass. A Silent Auction will be held simultaneously for smaller works.

The Auction will be held on Sat 2nd October at Edinburgh College of Art during the 400th Anniversary conference of Scottish Glass in October 2010.

Glass artists – both members and non-members of the Society - are cordially invited to submit one or more examples of their work for auction, with all proceeds to be divided equally between the artist and the SGS*. It is an opportunity for submitting artists to have their work displayed and sold before an audience of collectors and fellow artists.

The SGS Committee also invites collectors and fellow artists to join us for a glass of champagne at the viewing of the work.
