Come and Celebrate 50 Years of HCA!
Join us in Newark to celebrate 50 years of the Heisey Collectors of America (HCA) during the Percy and Vivian Moore Weekend, October 14 through 16. The event will provide plenty of opportunities to socialize with other Heisey glass lovers, to buy and sell glass and to admire the highest quality table glass made in America in our own National Heisey Glass Museum.
Thursday’s schedule includes a mini show/sale with offerings from some of our familiar glass dealers in the lower level of the museum, from noon until 8 p.m., as well as Night at the Museum from 6 to 9 p.m. Enjoy heavy hors d’ oeuvres, sweets and a cash bar with cocktails crafted by our President, Charlie Wade. You will also have an opportunity to preview the auction glass in Gallery 3 so you can begin choosing the items you hope to add to your glass collection during Saturday’s auction.
Friday includes an opportunity to visit the glass studio and shop of Aaron Buchholz, the glass artist who makes the Christmas ornaments and pumpkins that HCA sells each year. His small St Louisville Glass studio turns out a wide variety of beautiful, colorful glass in addition to the items he makes for HCA. The studio will be open from noon to 4 p.m.
Join Friday’s organized “ room hop” from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Hampton Inn Heath-Newark, the official PVMW hotel. Those wishing to sell Heisey glass may display their wares in their hotel room. Limited display space may be available for those not staying at the Hampton. The room hop will start in the Hampton meeting room at 1 p.m. where participants will enjoy light refreshments and learn which rooms are participating in the hop. If you wish to sell glass as part of the Room Hop, contact HCA Secretary Mary Olson, firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-597-1284 by Oct. 11.
The banquet will be held at the spacious Virtues Golf Club Restaurant and Bar, starting with light hors d’ oeuvres and a cash bar beginning at 5:30 pm, the HCA Membership Meeting at 6:30 p.m., and dinner at 7 p.m.. (See PVMW registration for dinner selections.) Heisey News.
If you were lucky enough to find a great deal on a piece of Heisey glass along the way to Newark, enter it in the friendly “Road Find” competition at the banquet.
The banquet will also include a fundraising auction of items donated by Heisey members and Study Clubs. If you would like to donate a piece of glass or a gift basket to be auctioned please contact HCA Secretary Mary Olson, email@example.com or 612-597-1284. If you are coming to PVMW, you may bring your donation with you and drop it off at the museum when you arrive. If you are unable to attend but would like to donate an item for the fundraiser, you may mail it directly to the museum.
The final event of the weekend is the Dave Spahr Fall Select Auction at the GMP Local #244 Union Hall in Newark, which will be conducted with simultaneous in person and online bidding. Those who can’t make it to Newark may view photos of the glass online and bid along with those in the gallery. We have it on good authority that there are many spectacular pieces among the 352 lots in this auction.
The registration fee of $125 includes all events. Online registration is encouraged. If you are unable to register online, please call the museum at 740-345-2932 or mail in your registration using the form in the September Heisey News.
