Report From Glass Art Society Conference in Toledo

Professor Tate has returned from the Toledo GAS Conference - loving all the events and talks. Said Tim about the conference "absolutely magnificent! "  "[Outgoing GAS President] Jeremy Lepisto's gang did a spectacular job! and Laura Donefer's fashion show blew me away. Such wonderful memories; so many new friends.....can't wait till the conference next year in Boston focusing on the next 50 years!" Below are some photos taken while at the conference.
