Since 1985, GlassWeekend 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 ’13, on June 7, 8 & 9, promises to be among the very best, with many new activities designed to be fun, inspiring, and informative. Demos by guest artists Beth Lipman, Davide Salvadore and Hiroshi Yamana are reason enough to make a great show, but combined with Judith Schaechter as the keynote speaker... makes this a not-to-miss event!
GlassWeekend is held at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, home of the Creative Glass Center of America (CGCA) and the Museum of American Glass.
