Ragsfest at Rainbow Artistic Glass in Omaha

AAEGlass would like to thank Dick Baines of Rainbow Artistic Glass and his family for opening up their studio and home to us this week in Omaha, Nebraska.  We really felt at home as we got to meet so many great studio owners and artists. We would also like to thank Joanna Vitale, president of RAGSfest and owner of Art Glass Connection for including us in such a great event, as well as all of the members who took us in and made us feel a part of their mission.

The vibe in the air this weekend was one of progressive thinking and helping the glass industry as a whole.  As stated previously, times are changing and the great retailers we met this weekend all saw that and shared ideas of how to grow the industry so everyone benefits, most of all the artists who choose to work with glass.

AAE Glass is proud to share the same vision of growing the glass world as a whole.  If we can work with forward thinking people to open doors for people to try working with glass, we all know they will love it. Keep up the great work and if there is anything we can do to help, please let us know.



  1. It was such a great time! I have to second all your comments! It was great to meet you, Tanya :)

  2. Anytime RAGS Retailers have a chance to get together and spend time playing with glass, magical things happen!
    Tanya and Mark, it was our pleasure having you join us this year in Omaha. We had great fun and a lot of laughs with you guys!
    Can't wait to see you again on Oct 1 & 2 for Extreme Fusing at Art Glass Connection!! Whoo Hoo!
