Annual Art Glass Sale was initiated on the loading dock behind the UTA art building in the mid-1990s by founder David Keens, in order to raise money to buy raw materials, equipment, tools, and development scholarships. Over the past 25 years, the annual event has grown into a world-class showcase of glass created by students, faculty, and visiting artists. Nearly two thousand works will be available for purchase, ranging from $5 paperweights to multi-thousand-dollar collector art works.


Thanks to the extraordinary support of the glass sale by members of the civic and university communities, the facility and program has expanded into one of the premier academic glass art programs in the country. The studio facility continues to operate on a modest yearly academic budget, supplemented by the funds raised during this important fundraiser and sale. Sale funds are divided equally between the contributing student sand the glass studio.They also provide scholarships and research support to both undergraduate and graduate students.


We look forward to seeing you at our Spring Sale, and continued support of our program and the University.
