Folks here at the PGC are running around and keeping secrets.
The usual shuffle has become a bit more hurried as many of the glass artists on staff are finalizing their work for our upcoming exhibit,From the Earth to the Fire and Back.
I first noticed the change over the weekend, when several staffers were using their days off to work in the studios. Images were being prepared for transfer, glass was being cut to size and kiln schedules were discussed. Our awesome glass staff members, many of your favorite Pittsburgh glass artists and some of PGC’s high school glass students are grueling away to make the deadline. As one artist rushed through the office I asked, “Can you tell me what you’re working on?” his reply, “No!” Apparently, this is one top secret show.
Our current exhibit, Behind the Lens, by Nathan J. Shaulis closes on February 28th. Come check out his photos of life behind the scene at PGC. Then be ready to visit us for From the Earth to the Fire and Back, which opens on March 5th. In celebration of the upcoming World Environment Day (Pittsburgh is the North America host city!) this juried exhibit focuses on the environment, explored through glass.
