This past month I ended my term as the 2017 Glass Arts Society's Student Representative. This position was one of the great privileges of my glass career. My father was part of a group of artists who formed this organization in the early 1970's. My mother has been a member of GAS for decades and a conference attendee for an equal amount of time. It was a privilege to serve in this role and I had the opportunity to work with some amazing artists. Serving on boards and committees are important for artists looking to contribute to the dialogue of a community. I look forward to continuing being a part of GAS.
