MARBLE EXCHANGE

Everyone at Glass Vegas has lost their marbles! Simply put: The opportunity of a lifetime. This “Secret Santa” game of exchange brings together marble makers from all over the country. Imagine pulling from a goodie bag of glass, an elite ball of wonder hand crafted by those beautiful souls; just like you. The excitement and cheering of the crowd as you dig deep and hold tight to see what magic you just might get to lay your yearning hands on. Last year’s game was insanely satisfying. One lucky 1st timer grabbed a ‘Paid in Full’ artist booth prize right out with his new crown jewel; courtesy of the masterfully brilliant; Piper Dan. Just Amazing.

Marble Exchange returns to Glass Vegas and the World Series of Glass line-up!! The rules are simple! If you bring a marble, you can take a marble! Marbles must be a minimum of $100 in value and a minimum of 1.5" in size. Cut off for entry is 3pm Tues 2/12/19. Marbles will be on display until the 2nd day when they will be passed out at random! Marble Exchange will take place Tuesday – 2/12 @ 6:15pm-7pm. If you pick the marble made by @blackfireglassworks you get the marble & win a FREE artist booth for Glass Vegas 2020!!

MILLIE MEETUP

Don't miss this awesome meetup! What’s a business trip without a little side action? We’ve done it, our secret afterhours party is out. The drop spot will be known only to those with the password. Last year’s elevator ride to the top was an impossible dream quickly realized by those that attended. Security may have had an issue, but I can assure you that we did not. Without dropping names or jumping on every little detail surrounding the dopest gathering of 2018, I’ll just say that in 2019, expect nothing less than spectacular.

GLASS VEGAS INJURED ARTIST FUND - SILENT AUCTION



GV Injured Artist Fund Logo


The silent auction at the Glass Vegas tradeshow is to benefit our Injured Artist fund.

100% of the proceeds of the auction will go directly to the fund, there are no fees.

You can participate by donating pieces to the auction, or bidding.

The injured artist recipient can be an artist with a physical injury that keeps the artist from working, or an indirect injury that also would keep the artist from working, like theft, fire, etc.

An artist needs to be a part of or nominated by the Glass Vegas Family.

Past recipients have been the family of an artist that passed away, an artist that had his torches stolen, one who had a large amount of work broken and one that broke his wrist.

The more you contribute or bid on, the more we can help the community!

Injured artist fund solely depends on the artists to donate work to be auctioned off on the Glass Vegas showfloor. Please be a part of our mission and make a difference!

Please contact us if you would like to donate a piece, or give it to J.D. Maplesden at the show, as he will be walking the floor collecting donations for the auction. The auction will be in place all during the show, concluding approximately at 4:20 PM Wednesday 2/13/19.
