President’s Message

| 0

As I write this message Spring weather has taken a turn toward summer temperatures, hope you were able to enjoy some outdoor recreation or just outdoor relaxation. Speaking of enjoyment, I hope that you had an opportunity to visit one of the many in person events over the past month. Whether it be the Art in Bloom show in Seattle and their great outdoor art and weather, or the vastness of the Oregon Convention Center with an abundance of creative arts at the 2023 Gathering of the Guilds. Or even your local community open studio tour. I believe whenever you can support other artists and view their souls, they share with us through their artwork it is time well spent. May you have more opportunities to enjoy many in person events throughout the spring season.

Now, a plea from the leadership of the Guild, WE NEED YOU! We are recruiting for the next group of leaders to move the Pacific Northwest Glass Guild forward and build on our past success. Two of our team leaders have announced their intention to step away after their current term is over, they are Membership and Sponsorship team leaders. The time to step up and volunteer has never been better, so you can learn from them over the next few months. Please reach out to any of our current board members or me anytime for more details on how you can assist us deliver great programs.
