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.

Lawrenceville Pop-Up Market artist opportunity

Lawrenceville Pop-Up Market

Lawrenceville Pop-Market Market is continuing throughout the summer! With more locations, almost double the vendor spots available, and an updated time, the popular Lawrenceville Pop-Up Market is ready for the summer. Happening on every other Saturday starting on June 12 through July and August from 10 am - 2pm, we are looking forward to being able to expand this event and make it even better than ever. From a few supersized dates with 4 locations, over 60 vendor spots available and more of our standard Saturdays with approximately 40 spots available and some good food trucks,  we are turning up the heat for this summer and working to create as many opportunities for local artists, makers and small businesses to sell their goods as we can.
