The Creative Glass Center of America at WheatonArts and the Art Alliance for Contemporary GlassGlass brings GlassWeekend, an International Symposium and Exhibition of Contemporary Glass. Since 1985, GlassWeekend, a biennial event, has brought together the world’s leading glass artists, collectors, galleries, and museum curators for a three-day weekend of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on glassmaking, artists, demonstrations and social events.GlassWeekend is held at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, home of the Creative Glass Center of America and the Museum of American Glass.
Tim Tate’s artwork will be featured at Habatat Galleries exhibit at WheatonArts. Tim will be moderator of a panel discussion: “Glass tells the Story : The Art of Collecting Narrative-Centered Glass in the 21st Century.” The panel will illustrate collections that focus on 21st century narrative work, but will also explore how 20th century glass and 21st century glass can be mixed in the same collection to the advantage of both styles. The collections of Fred and Susan Sanders and Fred and Sharon Schomer will be showcased. Curator William Warmus will also discuss collecting in the 21st century for museums and private collectors. Friday, June 12th @ 11:15am.
Internationally respected art galleries show the most current work of 200 professional artists working in glass making this event one of the most exciting and extensive presentations of museum quality glass vessels and sculpture ever assembled in one location.
