Glasstire is pleased to announce that The Glasstire Auction is set to run online from May 23-30, 2020. The auction was going to anchor the annual Glasstire Party in Houston, which was scheduled for March 27, 2020. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, Glasstire cancelled its fundraising event and postponed the auction.

Glasstire is a nonprofit, and we rely on this fundraiser to help support our operations. We want to thank our Glasstire Party chairs, Meredith Flores, Virginia Reynolds, and Gillian Sarofim, as well as our wonderful party supporters, listed below, for helping make our fundraiser a success.

Opening the morning of May 23 and closing the evening of May 30, this year’s Glasstire Auction features works by 26 fabulous Texas artists. Proceeds from the sale of the works are split between the contributing artists and Glasstire, meaning that by purchasing a work you’re directly supporting both our publication and independent artists. Pieces in the auction range in style, size, and price — there truly is something for everyone. A list of artists included in the auction is below; click through to learn more about each artist included in the sale. This page will be updated with a link once the online auction goes live.
