During the week on the West Coast of Florida is the much-anticipated grand opening of the Kotler-Coville Pavillion located at the entrance of the prestigious Ringling Museum of Art. This new space was created to present Studio Glass gifted from these great collections and selected glass works from the museum’s collection.

Habatat Galleries will also present two important exhibitions: “Trends” – an eye-opening presentation that speculates on the future of glass as an expression for artists and “Currents” – which presents new sculptures of 30 of the most sought-after International artists working today.

Also, during the week is the grand opening of the new Imagine Museum, whose collection features rare glimpses into the 55-year history of Studio Glass in America.

Habatat’s list of events include visits to the Duncan McClellan Gallery, collector homes, a visit to the Chihuly Museum and talks by a number of the glass artists being exhibited.

Washington Glass Goes South (to Sunny St. Petersburg!)

Duncan McClellan Gallery, located in the heart of St. Petersburg’s arty Warehouse Art District in Florida, will be showcasing five artists from the Washington Glass School.

Sean Hennessey, Tim Tate, Erwin Timmers, Michael Janis, and Allegra Marquart will be the DC five showing in sunny FLA.

Renown glass artist Duncan McClellan was one of the featured artists in the first international US/UK exhibits “Glass3” held Georgetown in 2008. Duncan has opened a hotshop and gallery that features rotating exhibitions showcasing nationally and internationally recognized artists. 

The Gallery in itself is a work of art. Duncan has transformed a 7,800 square foot former fish and tomato packing plant into a beautiful, multi- functional space. Lush fruit bearing trees create a veritable Eden within the industrial area that surrounds it. The grounds have become a meeting place for artists, visiting dignitaries and the community. Duncan also created the DMG School Project – an outreach that provide educational opportunities to both artists and community.

Beer, wine and refreshments are available for a donation benefiting the DMG School Project.
