Presentation by Jenny Monroe, member.
When Eugene Sullivan introduced young Bob Rockwell to Fred Carder it was on the golf course. During those weekly games, Bob would learn about community issues and about “all the possibilities of glass” from these two glass technology titans. Jenny Monroe will weave together stories of how Rockwell and Carder each came to Corning, grew their businesses, served the community and developed a deep mutual respect. It was this friendship that encouraged Rockwell to begin to collect Carder Steuben in the last few years of Mr. Carder’s life and to amass the huge collection that was given to the community through the Rockwell Museum. The talk will ground Carder and Rockwell in the context of local history and will be of interest to new and experienced collectors.
Jenny Monroe worked alongside Bob Rockwell for 23 years at The Rockwell Museum (1976-99) and organized many of the early Carder exhibits, dinners and Friends of Carder symposia. She and her husband collect Carder shades for their Arts & Crafts home in Corning.
In an effort to provide a buying and selling opportunity for Symposium attendees, tables will be set up inside the CMOG Auditorium during Symposium hours. Sellers will be given a card for each item to add their name, description, and purchase price. Buyers are to communicate directly with the Seller. The CSGA assumes no liability for damage, loss, or the authenticity of items sold. Depending on the number of items brought in for sale, the number of items will be limited to the space available.
September 8-10, 2022 The Annual Carder Steuben Glass Association Symposium will be held at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York.
