In the wake of the cancellation of the Glass Art Society (GAS) Boston
conference, several local individuals and institutions have decided to
collaborate to produce an alternative conference, GlassBoston.


GlassBoston will be held June 13-16, 2013. The main venues for the
conference will be Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the NOCA
Glass School @ APG, both located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The conference
will include lectures, demonstrations, tours, film series, gallery
exhibitions, a non-juried show & sale, BBQ dinner, and a closing party.
Pre/post-conference workshops will also be offered.


GlassBoston has been designed for emerging, mid-career and established
artists and the public interested in glass. Highlights include:


- Lectures by glass and origami artists Erik and Martin Demaine; Professor
of Materials Science Michael J. Cima; and an associate from James Carpenter
Design Associates.


- A symposium on the use of CAD and rapid prototyping tools and
technologies, including artists Tavs Jorgensen and Norwood Viviano.


- Tours of the MIT Media Lab, Center for Bits and Atoms, and the MIT Museum.


- A one-day come-one-come-all glass show and sale, open to all attendees and
the public.


- Demonstrations by Rik and Shelley Allen, James Mongrain, George Kennard,
Pablo Soto, Eric Meek, Mark Petrovic, Hank Adams, Deborah Czeresko, Matthew

Located in North Cambridge, Ma. NOCA Glass School has been teaching glass
since 2006.


Teaching many different disciplines of glassblowing, NOCA concentrates on
teaching the techniques and processes required to create a variety of blown
glass vessels and shapes. Proper form and body positioning are stressed to
help the student more easily begin to develop control with the medium and
tools. From there the student may find his or her voice with the glass and
begin to create Art.
