The National Capital Art Glass Guild is a group of glass artists of all persuasions primarily from Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC who come together to share ideas, learn from each other, and have fun. We are a 503(c)(3) non-profit organization and we strive to educate our community about the glass arts, and give our member-artists and their artwork exposure to the whole world. The NCAGG welcomes as members any who have an interest in glass art.

The NCAGG was founded in 1978 as a community of artisans interested in stained glass. As the glass arts have expanded, the guild and the interests of its members have grown to include all forms of glass art such as fusing, etching, beveling, and painting. Through meetings, workshops, and exhibitions, the NCAGG provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences, and promotes in the community at large all aspects of glass as an art and craft.

Every year guild members conduct classes in many glass techniques, and present programs to interested schools, organizations, and community groups through our outreach efforts. We hold regular planning meetings and social events such as special presentations from visiting artists, field trips, an annual picnic and an annual meeting/auction. We also organize various glass art shows for our members every year at local galleries and cultural institutions.
