From the Pilchuck Website:  "Pilchuck Glass School will host a one-night public exhibition featuring original works in glass by more than 250 international artists. Pilchuck on Display: An Exhibition of International Glass will be held at The Westin Seattle as part of the school’s Annual Auction celebration.

Free and open to the public, this event offers visitors an unparalleled opportunity to view an array of glass art while mingling with artists and patrons. "Pilchuck on Display allows visitors to take a virtual trip to our campus," observes Ruth King, the school’s artistic director. "And it offers them a chance to see finished works by artists from around the world who have studied and taught at the school."

"With masterpieces by studio glass movement pioneers and exciting works by emerging artists, the extraordinary variety arrayed in one place allows viewers to appreciate the range of creativity in glass," says Director of Development Whitney Hazzard. "And Pilchuck is honored to share them with Seattle-area residents and visitors."

Pilchuck on Display will be the only public viewing of these works before they enter private collections. All of these artworks, along with more than 100 table centerpieces will be auctioned off during Pilchuck’s Annual Auction Gala the following evening, Friday, October 15, 2010.
Pilchuck on Display is free, and no reservations are required."
