Bill Concannon has been working with neon since 1973. In 1975 he started his own neon studio, Aargon Neon, making, in addition to his sculpture, neon sign props and special effects neon for the motion picture industry, working on projects as diverse as Milk, Basic Instinct, and Howard the Duck. Concannon has worked as an instructor teaching neon sculpture at Academy of Art University since 2004 and has taught at the Pilchuck Glass School just north of Seattle. His sculpture has been shown nationally and internationally since 1977. In 2010-2011 he had a solo show at the Museum of Neon Art in Los Angeles entitled, “Recycled, Reclaimed, and Reinvented: The Neon Art of Bill Concannon.” In June of 2008, Concannon was invited to present his lecture, “Glass Graphics: The Joy of Signs,” to the Glass Art Society Conference in Portland, Oregon.
