“We are excited by the opportunity to welcome a new Artistic Director to guide Pilchuck Glass School through its 50th Anniversary and beyond,” shares Executive Director Christopher R. Taylor. “Pilchuck is looking for candidates who, along with being in touch with the current state of glass art, approach the art form with a visionary perspective that will help keep Pilchuck at the forefront of our field.”
Pilchuck has been fortunate to have a long history of artistic direction from visionaries like Dale Chihuly, Benjamin Moore, William Morris, Marjorie Levy, Pike Powers, Ruth King, and, most recently, Tina Aufiero.
“Pilchuck Glass School has a reputation of experimentation, collaboration, and pushing the boundaries of glass art and design. Our next Artistic Director will build upon this reputation and continue to attract students and instructors from around the world.”
Founded in 1971 by Dale Chihuly and patrons Anne Gould Hauberg and John H. Hauberg, the school’s iconic history and legacy as an international center for glass art education has inspired thousands of artists.
Located in Stanwood, Washington, the serene and rustic campus invites hundreds of artists from around the world each year to participate in programs as instructors, students, summer staff, and for residencies. In recent years, the school has launched new initiatives in expanding programming through spring and fall retreats with local youth organizations.
