The Creative Glass Center of America at WheatonArts and the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass invite you to join us at GlassWeekend ’13, an International Symposium and Exhibition of Contemporary Glass. Since 1985, GlassWeekend, a biennial event, has brought together artists, collectors, galleries, and museum curators for a three-day weekend of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on glassmaking, demonstrations and social events.
GlassWeekend ’13 will be held at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, home of the Creative Glass Center of America and the Museum of American Glass. WheatonArts is located 45 minutes from both Philadelphia and Atlantic City and less than three hours from New York City and Washington, D.C.
The proceeds of GlassWeekend benefit the Creative Glass Center of America Fellowship Program, providing working fellowships to ten individual artists from around the world each year. Additionally, as the event’s co-presenter, the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass dedicates portions of the proceeds to help fund Museum exhibitions that further the development and appreciation of art made from glass.
The CGCA has awarded 340 fellowships to emerging and mid-career artists, from the U.S. and 26 other countries. Artists are encouraged to use this opportunity to develop and refine their work, while experimenting with glassmaking processes. The collaboration and exchange of ideas among the Fellows enhances a productive climate, supporting the discovery of new vision and resources.
