Eastern States Early Amer. Pattern Glass collectors to meet Sept. 22-26
The meeting will begin on Wednesday evening with an informal member gathering and will conclude on Saturday and Sunday with Jeff Evans’ Sixteenth Annual cataloged auction of Early American pattern glass. The sale will feature more than 4,500 pieces, and Internet live bidding will be provided by LiveAuctioneers.com.
The Thursday agenda includes member glass sales and displays at the Courtyard Marriott, followed by a reception at “Sites House,” the historic circa-1800 home of Jeff and Beverley Evans.
Seminar sessions will be conducted at the Evans gallery on Friday. Planned seminar presentations include a talk by Jeff Evans on early flint EAPG, a presentation by Will McGuffin on “Photographing Your Glass,” a book-signing talk by Joanne Autenreith, author of a new book on the Co-operative Flint Glass Company; a presentation by Dean Six on “The Collections of the West Virginia Museum of American Glass,” and a pre-auction gallery walk with Jeff Evans.
A registration fee of $45 per person covers the Thursday evening reception, morning coffee, tea and muffins on Friday; and a box lunch on Friday. Registrants will make their own arrangements for all other meals. The registration fee also defrays the cost of other expenses of the meeting.
Registration forms and checks for the registration fee (made payable to Eastern States EAPGS) should be sent to Jim and Ann Walters at 4479 Drifton Drive, Columbus, OH 43227-2532 before Aug. 15, 2010.
