Longboat Key Center for the Arts will be collaborating with the esteemed Habatat Galleries (MI) to present the exhibition “Reflections from the Fire”, on view from January 16 until February 26. In the Durante Gallery work by two dozen artists representing 13 countries from North America, Europe, Australia and Asia will be on display, including Dutch glass artist Peter Bremers. 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 the gallery’s 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.
