Most of these artists have works in both museums and private collections around the world. In the recent past many of the newly appointed museum directors have acquired glass artworks to increase attention to their museums. Museums such as the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, the Flint Institute of Arts, The Imagine Museum, Toledo Museum of Art, the Fort Wayne Museum of Art and many more. The artworks included in this exhibition offer a vast history of the contemporary glass art movement that started in 1962.

Enjoy the auction and we look forward to your bids!  Contact Habatat for more details.

25th MasterWorks: A Contemporary Glass Auction Habatat Galleries Sarasota Florida

Welcome to Habatat Galleries “Masterworks: A Contemporary Glass Auction”. This is our 5th auction on the eastern coast of Florida and to celebrate, Habatat is presenting an outstanding selection of International glass artworks. With a few exceptions, this auction is composed of two very divergent collections. One is from a prominent collector, well known for his connoisseurship in the glass medium with a special interest in cast glass. Another is the Gilda Birmingham collection, which is comprised of significant early works in miniature scale. In the middle of the auction, we will offer this body of 12 works which are extremely rare in large part because of their scale. Please enjoy the auction catalogue and contact us for information on bidding, as well as with any questions you may have.
