American Paperweight Circle March 28th in Weston

American Paperweight Circle

Weston, WV – The 4th annual session of the American Paperweight Circle is scheduled for March 28, 2015 at the Museum of American Glass in West Virginia (MAG) located at 230 Main Street in Weston.  There will be at least a dozen makers and dealers to exhibit and sell who come from as far away as New York.  Executive director , Dean Six said, “Many  of the glass artists make weights just for this show and will be introducing new techniques and designs.“ Both old and new American–made weights will be featured.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network and learn from one another as well as see the museum’s impressive collection of over 400 weights including an extensive group from the Cambridge, Ohio Degenhart Museum that is now closed.

A special event this year will be the dedication of a new home for the Great Pumpkin in a pumpkin patch.  Already the pumpkin patch has a small selection of glass paperweight pumpkins surrounding the Great Pumpkin.

The show and sale is from 10 am to 3 pm. Set-up for the sale is free, but tables must be reserved in advance with MAG. The event is free and open to the public.

The museum is located at 230 Main Street in Weston WV, 26452.  For more information contact 304-269-5006, glassmuse12@gmail.com, or visit www.magwv.com.
