2011 Exhibitions


ten more years on penn   

October 7, 2011 - February 11, 2012

The installation by artists Gwylene Gallimard and Jean Marie Mauclet illustrated how artistic intervention changed the Penn Avenue corridor and what the future might look like. Gallimard and Mauclet met with community members from the neighborhoods to examine the changes that have taken place over the years and understand the effects on the people and surrounding area. 

Gallimard and Mauclet, who reside in South Carolina, had been working together for over 30 years in France and the U.S. They are mixed media artists specializing in art installations and community work. They had never worked in glass until their residency at PGC.

10x10x10: Xtreme Art Comes in Small Packages 

May 6 - September 18, 2011

This was Pittsburgh Glass Center's most extreme exhibit of glass art that showcased the work of over 200 glass artists from Australia, Czech Republic, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico and the U.S., a diverse mix of emerging Pittsburgh artists, well-known international artists as well as many important figures from the American studio glass art movement. All of the artwork was limited in size to 10” x 10” x 10” to commemorate PGC's 10th anniversary. It highlighted the creativity and talent of the nearly 300 artists who have taught, lectured and exhibited at PGC during its first 10 years.
