In November 2015, the Glass Art Society and Chihuly Garden and Glass partnered to conduct an in-depth study of the state of glass art in America with the intent of researching the most active regions for glass art, and providing a benchmark to measure future growth and trends in the industry.
GMA Research firm was brought on to administer the study nationwide. The project included two phases -- a research phase that included in-depth interviews with industry leaders (collectors, gallery owners, educators, artists, etc.) and two surveys (one for the general public and one for Glass Art Society membership.
More than 2,200 people from across the nation responded, providing a statically accurate sample of the US population. The special exhibit at SOFA CHICAGO will be the first full presentation of the research findings including the top five trends from the study affecting the glass community at large, and works of art to elucidate those trends from galleries exhibiting at SOFA.
Artists represented in order of listing: Habatat Galleries, Royal Oak, MI (Muzylowski Allen and Eskuche); Wexler Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; Heller Gallery, New York, NY
Presented by the Glass Art Society in conjunction with the SOFA CHICAGO Special Exhibit Landscape of Glass in America
