ABOUT GLASSROOTS - MADISON

Now entering its 7th year, Glassroots Madison is designed for artists and distributors who wish to do wholesale business with shops and galleries. The trade show portion of Glassroots Madison is open to qualified Wholesale buyers ONLY and features top quality American-made functional glass art, much of which is represented directly by the artists themselves.

Public attendees can purchase art from many non-functional art booths in the main foyer, and are encouraged to attend the live flameworking event presented by The Glassroots Guild. This area of the show features at least 40 glassworkers demonstrating and creating pieces for public viewing, live and silent auctions, raffles, and approximately 15 booths consisting of raw material suppliers, functional and nonfunctional art, and charitable glass organizations.

Glassroots Madison is held at Monona Terrace Convention Center, on beautiful Lake Monona in downtown Madison and connected by skywalk to The Hilton Monona Terrace for ease of attendance.

Attending Glassroots has been a career game changer for me.

"Attending Glassroots has been a career game changer for me. Not only has it allowed me to show glass on a very personable level to a national audience, but it has given an opportunity to meet and mingle with so many of the faces I see work from online daily. The vibe of these events is warm and feel family driven. Thanks for the support Nick."
