Gathered Locally was a 20th anniversary celebratory exhibition featuring our amazing local glass artists. 

Since opening in 2001, over 50 artists have moved to Pittsburgh to live and make their art at Pittsburgh Glass Center. They join our existing community of professional and aspiring glass artists that teach and take classes at PGC each year.  Together they make up a vibrant community of glass artists.
