2016 Art Glass Weekend
Sarasota, Florida
January 28th–31st
Michigan’s Habatat Galleries and the Longboat Key Center for the Arts will be hosting their 2nd Annual Art Glass Weekend in January at the Longboat Key Center for the Arts in Sarasota Florida along with a few other locations.
Last year in American Art Collector magazine, Sarasota was identified as the “new art glass mecca” due to the collections, museums, art centers, galleries, and the growing number of artists working with glass that now live in the region. Contemporary Glass has become an exciting focus along the Gulf Coast of Florida.
The show promises an amazing 4-day glass experience which includes exhibitions, auctions, private collection tours, talks by internationally noted artists, and tours of museums.

Longboat Key Center for the Arts will host an exhibition titled “Commentaries: Stories Told In Glass”, and the show explores narrative works with amazing visual statements accompanied with commentaries written by the twenty-one invited artists. The presentation offers a rare glimpse into each artist’s inspiration. The artists will be represented by 2 works each.
