Every year Pittsburgh Glass Center asks for art donations for their annual fundraiser. Without the support of these artists, we could not provide access to world-class glass art and artists, excellent education, and state-of-the-art resources that inspire artistic expression. In appreciation, we have created the opportunity for artists who donate to the Art on Fire Auction to receive a 10-day residency at PGC. Three residencies will be awarded: -Artwork valued at $1500 and above - selected by jury -Artwork valued under $1500 - selected by jury -People's Choice Awards - selected by the public via Facebook.

2017 Gather: An ISU Alumni Glass Exhibition
"The exhibition is a survey of the diverse range of artwork from the graduates of the Illinois State University’s Studio Glass program. As the curator of this show, I chose artists who had a profound impact on my creative process while I was at ISU. The artists are in various stages of their personal and professional lives and each artist has been influential in sharing and exchanging knowledge that keeps ISU glass growing. The title “Gather” is an homage to John Miller, our instructor and mentor, where “Gather” refers to the strong bond and community shared between the artists who have graduated from the ISU Studio Glass Program."
