Frequently asked Exhibition Questions:

The SGAA usually has an exhibition theme. Why an open theme this year? We wanted to show off the incredible variety of art that can be created with stained glass – open up your imagination to all of the possibilities of glass.

Why 2ft. x 2ft.? That is the largest size permitted for most airline carry ons. If you are flying, be sure to check with your airlines for specific carry on guidelines or rules for checking through a stained glass panel as luggage. Panels can also be shipped early to the SGAA Headquarters.

Can a studio enter more than one piece? Absolutely! The more the merrier! This is what some studios are doing:

  • Submitting a team project representing their studio.
  • Employees are submitting individual panels. At one studio, the employees are getting together after hours to work on their projects with experienced employees mentoring newer, less experienced employees so that everyone has a chance to create a quality exhibition piece.
  • Studio owners are putting in entries in competition with their employees. What great competitive spirit!
  • One studio owner has created a challenge to their employees. The owner will match the cash prize should an employee win first, second, or third place.

NOTE: Names will not be posted with the exhibition pieces until after the winning entries have been selected.

 See you in Kansas City!
