Artist Opportunities

opportunities for artists

At Pittsburgh Glass Center we share our passion for glass locally and globally to advance a more diverse, vibrant, and accessible glass art community.

An important part of our mission is to cultivate, nurture and support diverse and passionate glass artists and expand opportunities for them to make and exhibit their work in Pittsburgh and beyond. 

If you have an artist opportunity that you would like to list here, contact us. Artists can also join our Facebook group for Pittsburgh Area Glass Artists.
