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.

Featured artists in 2015 will be Amber Cowan and Luke Jerram. GlassWeekend ’15 will also intersect with EMANATION: ART AND PROCESS, a year-long invitational residency and exhibition program at WheatonArts. Highlights include the Museum of American Glass Exhibition:  Emanation: Art and Process (May 1, 2015 – January 4, 2016) 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. The Artist Reception will take place during GlassWeekend on Saturday, June 13, 2015.

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 and 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.
