Please help Glen Echo Glassworks Artists go to Sweden!

The prestigious Glass Arts Society selected Glen Echo Glassworks artists Paul Swartwood ,  Mark Hill , and  Phil Valencia  to demonstrate specialized glassblowing techniques at the Annual Meeting in Sweden in May 2020.

This exceptional opportunity and international exposure exemplifies the growing success of the glass arts program at Glen Echo Park.

Your contribution at any level will be matched dollar-for-dollar for a limited time  through the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.

Donations will cover conference expenses — including glass preparation and shipping of working tools and safety equipment — for this once in a lifetime experience .

Donate today before matching funds run out!

We would also like to thank all of our Donors for contributing to this special fundraising campaign!
