Museum of American Glass in West Virginia 40th anniversary exhibit

We would like to thank The Museum of American Glass in Weston, West Virginia for hosting an exhibit of stretch glass provided by the Stretch Glass Society in honor of our 40th anniversary in June, July and August, 2014.  The exhibit showcased over 150 examples of vintage and contemporary stretch glass including approximately 100 shapes and 15 colors. The Stretch Glass Society undertook the exhibit in connection with fulfilling its mission of promoting iridescent stretch glass and providing opportunities to see and learn about the variety of items produced in stretch glass from nut cups to candlesticks and comports.  The Stretch Glass Society is extremely grateful to the Museum of American Glass in West Virginia for providing the opportunity and space to showcase iridescent stretch glass in conjunction with our 40th Anniversary in 2014.  We encourage you to visit the museum and check out all the glass and glass-related items on exhibit.  You will find over 25,000 items on display, providing insights into glass-making in America from the 1800’s right up until the present.  While you are there, be sure to check out the museum’s permanent exhibit of stretch glass.  Be sure to check out to see what new exhibits are on display now.
