Over the past few decades, the Northwest has gained a reputation for its exceptional glass-art community, thanks in no small part to Tacoma native Dale Chihuly, Chihuly Garden and Glass, the Museum of Glass, the Pilchuck Glass School, and various galleries and hot shops. If you want to introduce your team or group to the works and artists of decorative glass— or just want an excuse to get together for a much-needed team outing—be sure to check out Seattle’s new event: Refract – The Seattle Glass Experience. The event will take place Oct. 17–20, 2019 and will be held at various locations throughout the region. It will include a mix of exhibitions, art parties, talks, tours and demonstrations, along with open studios and collector events.

Participating organizations include  Chihuly Garden and Glass,  Tacoma Art Museum’s Rebecca & Jack Benaroya Wing, Museum of Glass, Traver Gallery,  Abmeyer + Wood Fine Art,  Stonington Gallery, Glass Art Society, Pilchuck Glass School, Pratt Fine Arts Center,  Chihuly Studio,  Seattle Glassblowing Studio  and Western Neon.
