Exhibitions

The Hodge Gallery at Pittsburgh Glass Center presents critically acclaimed contemporary glass art exhibitions throughout the year. A wide range of work in glass is showcased from student exhibitions to cutting edge installations by established artists that incorporate light, sound and time-based elements. With these exhibitions, PGC is expanding the perception of glass from purely functional item to the realm of sculpture, installation and expression.
