The Largest Annual International Glass Exhibition In The World Habatat Galleries is excited to announce the 45th Annual International Glass Invitational Exhibition. The event takes place April 27th – 29th, 2017 at the Habatat Galleries compound in Royal Oak, Michigan. Habatat has invited 100 artists representing over 25 countries to exhibit two of their finest works for visiting collectors to experience.

45 Apr il 27-29

Last year’s attendees enjoyed the personal time they shared with the over 50 artists at the International Glass Invitational. It was a unique opportunity to meet the most noted artists in the glass world. Habatat Galleries is expecting an even larger turnout this year. Expect to see many artists that you may be familiar with as well as some talented newcomers in the exhibition. The 45th will be the highlight of your year in glass! The gallery will be displaying an additional 300 works from the largest glass inventory in the United States. Work on the secondary market will be on display from noted collectors Jean and Hilbert Sosin. A very special second exhibition, “The Jewelry Box”, will offer unique glass and mixed media jewelry. This year The Henry Ford Museum has coordinated the opening of their much anticipated glass museum, designed by Jamie Carpenter, in conjunction with the International opening. They will have a special gala for the Habatat attendees that will celebrate glass and feature the collection of noted collector Bruce Bachman. Other events you will experience include a strolling dinner and the famous MasterWorks Glass Auction planned for Thursday evening that will include many historic treasures from the early days of American Studio Glass. You will also have the opportunity to attend private home tours, demonstrations, lunches, dinners, and parties along with artist talks that have been both interesting and controversial in the past. These events lead up to the Grand Opening on Saturday evening of the 45th International Glass Invitational. 2016 Image of attending artists Ignite Glass Studio - Chicago Illinois 401 N Armour Street 312.465.2389 Demonstrations, classes, events

History is Made

Flint Museum of Art Acquires the Shirly & Sherwin Glass Collection In January of this year the largest Studio Glass sale in history took place. It was a multimillion dollar acquisition that encompassed the entire Atlanta glass collection of the late Sherwin and Shirley Glass. These 154 major works were primarily collected and created from 1999 to 2009.The late owners’ final request was that the collection be donated to a museum. After 7 years and thanks to the Isabel Foundation who acquired the collection; The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and the Flint Institute of Arts, their wishes were realized. The Isabel Foundation will place this collection in the Flint Institute of Arts, Michigan’s second largest museum, on long term loan. The C.S. Mott Foundation has given the Flint Institute of Arts an $8.5 million capitol grant as part of a $17.5 million capitol grant and endowment. This money will be used to create an 8,000 sq. ft. wing for Studio Glass and Ceramics and a 3960 sq. ft. “Makers Space” that will be highlighted with a state of the art glass studio with stadium style seating. Construction has begun and is scheduled for completion during the late summer of 2017. Ferdinand Hampson was not only Sherwin and Shirley principal art dealer he and his wife Kathy considered themselves close friends of the Glass’s. Michigan continues to be one of the leaders in this country in major public glass collections. In the Spring of 2017 the Henry Ford is scheduled to open their glass museum on the grounds of Greenfield Village that will compliment a history of glass, which will be a permanent display inside of the Henry Ford Museum. The grand opening for the Museum glass presentation is scheduled for October of this year.
