Autumn Gold, 2008. Irene Frolic.

Monday, October 6 • 7pm
Sandra Ainsley Gallery • 100 Sunrise Ave. Unit 150, Toronto

The series kicks off October 6 with Collecting Contemporary Glass Art. This stimulating lecture will be given by Sandra Ainsley onsite in her spectacular gallery in Toronto. Ainsley has been in business since 1984 and is Canada’s leading dealer of contemporary glass art.

The Sandra Ainsley Gallery – a dramatically lit industrial warehouse that showcases the stunning collection she represents – will provide an impressive backdrop for the event. Guests will learn the process of collecting significant work – from research to evaluating to purchasing and ultimately how to ‘curate’ their own collections. An expert in the industry, Ainsley will have insider knowledge on what is trending in the world of contemporary glass art.

The event begins at 7pm and includes a reception. Guests from Waterloo Region can book their seat on a bus that will depart from Waterloo at 4:45pm and return following the lecture.

Advance tickets for the event are $25 ($20 for Members of The Clay & Glass). Return transportation between Waterloo and Toronto is an additional $25 per person and must be booked by October 3. Purchase your tickets here.

Tickets purchased at the door are $30 each.
