2015 Symposium in Review
The ASIA 2015 Symposium is now just a memory. Actually, it is a series of great memories that we want to hold on to for all the fun and learning. The symposium was filled with great presentations and speakers; though many areas of lutherie were included, this year had special coverage on historical subjects like Gurian Guitars, Froggy Bottom Guitars, and Dick Boak's illustrious careers in art and guitars. If you can't learn from history, you are doomed to repeat it.
Approximately 250 members attended this year’s event, June 10–14, at East Stroudsburg University. I think it is safe to say that a good time was had by all. This year's auction netted $13,000 for ASIA, which certainly made the organizers very happy! Read on for some great photos, memories, and inspiration for the next symposium.
