Fluid Formations: The Legacy Of Glass In The Pacific Northwest
Whatcom Museum - Old City Hall, Bellingham, WA - To Oct 10
The Lightcatcher Building hosts the art of 57 contemporary artists working in glass, tracing the region’s stellar advance in glass art since the Pilchuck Glass School opened in Stanwood, Washington, in 1971. Staged in partnership with the Museum of Glass in Tacoma 50 years later, the show celebrates the innovation and varied processes and ideas of these glass artists, with an emphasis on how they help each other out.
