Perry Glass Studio: Get Fired Up
With a big Third Thursday extravaganza coming up on Dec. 15, here's a look at last month's bit of glass art as performance art.
Free Daily Demos
We present FREE daily demonstrations at noon every Tuesday through Sunday. For a taste of what's in store, see one of our favorite stories ever (it's from Distinction Magazine). One of our favorite things to do at noon is work off the "You Draw It, We Make It" board.
Take A Class
Offerings range from family-friendly special sessions with no experience required to evening or one-day workshops. You can work your way up from novice to Ninja, and you can see all classes in all categories in our online catalog.
On the third Thursday of every month, we combine music, adult beverages and glass art as performance art. These events routinely sell out, so pick up your tickets early on the night of the show. You can find full details here.
GAS Conference, June 1-3, 2017
We are pleased to announce that we will host the 46th annual conference of the Glass Art Society June 1–3, 2017. The theme is Reflections from the Edge: Glass, Art, and Performance and registration opens Dec. 1, 2016.
The Society said it picked Norfolk to host because of the Chrysler Museum's "renowned glass collection and its state-of-the-art Perry Glass Studio's growing national reputation in the world of glass, especially its groundbreaking glass theatrical performances."
There will be demonstrations all across the NEON Arts District and special events ranging from galas and auctions to a reception aboard the USS Wisconsin. For more details, click here.
