Since 1985, GlassWeekend, a biennial international symposium and exhibition of contemporary glass art, 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 ’15 will also intersect with EMANATION: ART + PROCESS, a groundbreaking exhibition at WheatonArts, featuring new work by Mark Dion, Paula Hayes, Carolyn Healy & John Phillips, Donald Lipski, Virgil Marti, Michael Oatman, Judy Pfaff, Jocelyne Prince, Rob Wynne, and Mark Zirpel.

In addition to demonstrations by Amber Cowan and Luke Jerram, the Glass Studio will also host The Glass Yard: Object/not, an intensive studio event will include many of the artists exhibiting in the exhibit, Emanation: Art + Process, as they work alongside other artists to make, create, perform and cultivate with the medium of glass.

Proceeds for GlassWeekend will provide support for the Creative Glass Center of America (CGCA) Fellowship Program at WheatonArts. Since 1983, this program has provided over 350 studio residencies to emerging and mid-career artists. Additionally, the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass, as the event co-presenter, dedicates portions of the proceeds to help fund Museum exhibitions that further the development and appreciation of art made from glass.
