Artist In Residence Studio

The building across from the cold shop holds two studios for Pilchuck’s artists in residence. These consist of table and wall space ideal for planning, researching, drawing, and laying out works.

Each session Pilchuck invites two established and acclaimed visual artists to participate as artists in residence (AiRs). Usually these are artists whose primary work does not involve glass. AiRs live on campus and interact with the students and instructors. This program enriches the experiences of all artists on campus by promoting a cross-fertilization of ideas and concepts. Because they approach glass with a fresh eye and without preconceptions as to what is or isn’t possible with the medium, AiRs use and develop glass in new and creative ways.
