President’s Message

Summer is upon us, and I hope that everyone has been able to get outside and enjoy time with their favorite outdoor activities. During a recent vacation I had the opportunity to visit a fantastic garden and some new beach areas for me. It was a great reminder that nature’s beauty is all around us and we should be inspired to create art that features our corner of the United States and all its beauty.

Don’t miss the opportunity to get together at one of our upcoming in-person picnics. It is a great opportunity to see fellow glass artists and catch up on what they are working on. Thanks to our generous hosts for opening their doors for these events, we wouldn’t be able to do so without their hospitality. Check out the dates and locations:

Battle Ground WA (near Portland) picnic:
Sunday August 6th, noon to 4 pm (NOTE CHANGES)

Seattle WA picnic: Sunday August 13th at 11 am

and RSVP today!

Sorry that I need to repeat this plea from my last newsletter message, but PNWGG is still in need of member volunteers for our upcoming year’s leadership team. 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. Our Sponsorship team lead has announced their intention to step away after their current term is over. 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 at anytime for more details on how you can assist us deliver great programs.
