Your ISGB Regional Directors are proud to present the online gallery for Venture!

The goal of this show is to provide an opportunity for ISGB members who have never participated in a juried show to experience the entry and jury process. Each region has chosen a theme. The work of sucessful applicants will be displayed online for several months in 2012. The top five beads (based on the jurors' scores) from each region will become part of an actual show at the 2012 Gathering. 

Below you'll find a list of the entries that were selected for inclusion in the live portion of Venture which was on display at the Seattle Glassblowing Studio at the 2012 Gathering in July.
