  • January 16–February 26 - Longboat Key, Florida
    Longboat Key Center for the Arts 6860 Longboat Drive South Longboat Key, FL 34228 (941) 383-2345 www.ringling.edu Reflections from the Fire Longboat Key Center for the Arts will be collaborating with Habatat Galleries (MI) to present “Reflections from the Fire” two extraordinary contemporary glass events. Two dozen artists representing 13 countries from North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia will be presented in the Durante Gallery. Each artist has distinguished themselves not only in their respective countries but throughout the world. Every technique in glass will be represented, each created with the unique vision coupled with consummate skill. The exhibition provides an instant education into the world of studio glass and a visual experience that will last a life time! Accompanying the exhibition will be the first contemporary glass auction to occur in Florida. The body of work was again assembled by Habatat Galleries (MI) and has examples of earlier work by many of the masters. This too is an international event and will present landmark works in the careers of many of our noted artists. There will also be surprises, famous works that have just come to the market, and special pieces revealing new and experimental approaches to making glass art.

  • January 30–May 31 - Athens, Ohio
    Kennedy Museum of Art at Ohio University Athens, OH 45701 (740) 593-1304 www.ohio.edu/museum American Art Glass: 1970–1990 This exhibition presents a selection of influential contemporary glass artists who made sculptures outside of the factory setting. Making one-ofa-kind objects during the American Studio Glass Movement, these artists were among the first to use molten glass in their private studios. In 1962 Harvey Littleton, known as the Father of The Studio Glass Movement, organized two workshops at Toledo Museum of Art and introduced a prototype studio furnace, which opened up new possibilities for artists using glass. Drawn from the collections of Huntington Museum of Art and Kennedy Museum of Art, the exhibition includes works by artists Dale Chihuly, Michael Cohn, Jon Kuhn, Michael Glancy, Howard Ben Tré, John Kuhn, Mary Shaffer, Jon Kuhn, Robert Kehlmann, Stephen Dee Edwards, Marvin Lipofsky, Concentta Mason, Toots Zynsky, Don Shepherd, Henry Halem, and Robert Willson.

    Sandwich Glass Museum, Sandwich, MA - Eggstravaganza - Decorative Eggs & Glass Hen Dishes is a special exhibition in the Spite Barn Gallery from February 4 to April 26.

  • February 4-June 14 - Sandwich, Massachusetts
    COMMON SCENTS: The Sandwich Glass Museum in Sandwich, MA is proud to present a special exhibition Common Scents - American Cologne & Perfume Bottles from February 4 through June 14. Housed in the Museum's Special Exhibition Gallery, dozens of scent, cologne, and perfume bottles manufactured by American glasshouses in the 19th and 20th centuries are on display as well as a selection of European bottles for comparison. Featured in Common Scents are the commercial bottles produced by American glasshouses, as well as the often one-of-a-kind bottles crafted today by contemporary glass artists. Each is appreciated for the skill and craftsmanship of those who made these works of art and for the contents they once held. This is a truly remarkable collection of exquisite cologne bottles in a variety of vibrant colors, unusual shapes and intriguing patterns.

  • February 4-June 28 - Sandwich, Massachusetts
    Sandwich Glass Museum, Sandwich, MA - RETURN TO THE AGE OF EXCELLENCE We are proud to bring you the artistry of well-known glass artist Roger Gandelman, whose specialty is perfume bottles, from February 4 to June 28. They are simply exquisite. He is the premier glass artist in the United States, perhaps the world, who has devoted his full artistic efforts into making these objects. While small in scale, each vessel makes a grand statement! Working unassisted in his studio allows for every progressive step in the creation of a piece to satisfy him. No piece is finished until it meets his exacting expectation. Roger explains that his designs are timeless...unmarred by passing trends; with flavors from the age of excellence, encased in a contemporary form. Gandelman's work has been seen in dozens of galleries throughout the U.S., Hawaii, Japan, England and in a number of museums including the Smithsonian Museum and Bergstrom-Mahler Museum.

  • February 14-May 10 - Tacoma, Washington
    Museum of Glass. Patra Passage. The Patra Passage suggests that the experience of an object, especially as it connects one person to another, is as important as its physical attributes. In our age of consumerism and consumption, we are all too accustomed to view works of art as commodities (especially in the West) and need to be reminded that one of the essential purposes of art is to provide a sense of cultural connection to community. For Patra Passage, artist Lynda Lowe created 108 small vessels which have been exchanged between people around the world and are now returning to the Museum in an exhibition examining gift exchange, community and spirit. The project's interactive website is www.patrapassage.com. 1801 Dock Street, Tacoma, WA 98402

  • February 14–May 13, 2015 - Friday Harbor, Washington
    San Juan Islands Museum of Art 540 Spring St. Friday Harbor, WA 98250 (360) 370-5050 http://sjima.org Illuminated: Glass by William Morris, 1998–2013 IMA sets the stage for an exciting future in fine art exhibitions with its opening exhibition showcasing the works of glass artist William Morris. “[This] exhibition is the perfect inaugural show for the opening of the new IMA building,” said Executive Director Charlie Bodenstab. “The new structure features a dramatic glass atrium that will highlight Morris’ beautiful and evocative glass pieces.” William Morris, a teacher at the world renowned Pilchuck School, has captivated and intrigued with hauntingly evocative and beautiful glass sculptures for more than 20 years. Morris gathers much of his inspiration from ancient cultures from around the world—Egyptian, Asian, Native American—all peoples, he has said, who respected and admired the land they inhabited. Because of this, Morris’s artwork has an intriguing ambiguity: it is culturally distinct and yet familiar to all cultures. His pieces embody a spiritual quality that sharply contrasts old beliefs with those of the modern world.

    Christie Mayer Lefkowith, an internationally recognized expert on the life and work of the great French glassmaker René Lalique, will be the featured speaker at the March 3 meeting of the New York Metropolitan Glass Club. Her talk will focus on Lalique’s significant contribution to changing perfume packaging from its original utilitarian role to the level of an acknowledged art form.
    A native of Nice, France, Mrs. Lefkowith and her husband, Edwin F. Lefkowith, have been collecting and studying perfume flacons and related beauty and cosmetics items for more than 40 years ago. She has worked with Phillips-Geneva, Baccarat, and Saks Fifth Avenue as well as museums here and abroad, including the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, FIT, the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. She has lectured at the Smithsonian, the Corning Museum of Glass and the Cooper-Hewitt, and has recently been prominently mentioned in Architectural Digest, L’Express, Le Figaro and Vogue.

      Shirley Klinghoffer - CRT Revisited May 23 - October 11, 2015 Shirley Klinghoffer: CRT Revisited is an exhibition, opening at Museum of Glass, Tacoma, Washington, on May 23, 2015, that features the work of artist Shirley Klinghoffer. For many decades, Klinghoffer has explored life situations, particularly women's issues, through her work. The artwork in her CRT series was inspired by hospital forms used to support women's bodies during radiation therapy. With sensitivity and discipline, she has transformed these hospital forms into molds over which she has melted "skins" of glass that freeze a moment of extreme vulnerability. This was accomplished through a special glass technique called "slumping", a process where the pull of gravity impacts the formation of these bodily connected sculptures.

    • July 9-12 - Indianapolis, Indiana
      The National American Glass Club 2015 Seminar will be joining the Mega-Glass Convention 2015 in Indianapolis, IN, July 9-12, 2015.
      The MEGA Glass Convention/Conference is a large and complex event, intended to continually advance the glass collecting bug so that the vast and glorious history of American glass-making is not lost. Our world is on an ever changing track of advancement in technology, and while these advances provide new venues for buying and selling, the rich history of our glass and its making is at risk of being left behind. One arena that stands out is the need to bring our youth to see and understand what earlier Americans enjoyed and lived with.
      The main ingredient is glass – and its power to draw us together for another spectacular convention. Now that we are seeing winter give way to spring and season of individual conventions for 2014 is approaching, we should contemplate what it would feel like to be surrounded by people from different glass clubs with one central theme…the love of great American and Victorian glass. This event again creates an entirely unique experience that will be memorable and fun with all things familiar and some, very new!
      The participants of this MEGA event are: Antique Glass Salt and Sugar Shaker Club, Early American Pattern Glass Society, Vaseline Glass Collectors, Inc., Wave Crest Collectors Club, the National American Glass Club, the National Duncan Glass Society, the National Milk Glass Collectors Society, The West Virginia Museum of American Glass and the National Greentown Glass Association.
      You are invited to see this happen all in one place, centered in the Midwest in Indianapolis, Indiana on July 9-12, 2015. The meeting will be at the Sheraton Indianapolis at Keystone Crossing. We have set these dates to coincide with a new edition of the Hoosier Antiques Expo at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis. At both the MEGA convention and the show, you should see collections and displays that span the history of America glass.
      The weekend will be a synergistic treat where we can all learn, make new friends, unite with old friends and get up close and personal with related wares that touch all of our collections.
      Details about NAGC's program during the Mega-Glass Convention may be found on our seminar page. So, come feel the power of glass in a new way with new friends and old.
