Millville, NJ’s glass-centric biennial at historic Wheaton Arts was just held. Maurine Littleton Gallery featured the work of Washington Glass School artists Tim Tate, Allegra Marquart and Michael Janis. The events over the weekend included a collector virtual shopping spree – where 4 noted collectors and curators were asked to photograph and present works on exhibit that they would purchase if they each had $250,000. Artwork by Allegra Marquart was selected by Jon Liebman, and a number of Michael Janis’ glass panels were selected by Chis Rifkin.
