Ron Desmett Memorial Award for Imagination with Glass
Pittsburgh Glass Center
Entry Deadline: May. 31
Pittsburgh Glass Center (PGC) announces the first Ron Desmett Memorial Award for Imagination with Glass. Artists who think outside of the box, practice curiosity, and take risks to create unique, imaginative works in glass are encouraged to apply online by May 31, 2018.
In order to foster these characteristics in the next generations of glass artists, PGC will award a minimum of $5,000 annually to an artist (or scholar) in one of four categories:
YOUTH: A student of high school age
EMERGING ARTIST: An artist beginning his or her professional life working with glass
IDEA FURNACE: An artist whose medium of choice may not be glass,
CRITICAL WRITING: A writer who would use this award to focus on glass, with emphasis on craft media as sculpture exploring new thoughts as glass art matures.
