visiting artist


The Museum’s Visiting Artist Residency Program hosts internationally-known and emerging artists in our world-class Hot Shop to create new works in glass with our Hot Shop Team. Offering a diverse mixture of culture, style, focus and expertise, these artists create a sense of excitement and wonder as they experiment and explore new directions in their art that may not be possible in their own studios. Residencies range in length from single day visits—including every Friday for our Hot Lunch Program—to multiple weeks. One piece created during the residency is selected for inclusion in the Museum's collection. Many of our Visiting Artists present a Conversation with the Artist lecture and slide presentation on the final day of their residency.

In the summer, MOG presents the Visiting Artist Summer Series, a partnership with Pilchuck Glass School, that brings artists from around the world to the Hot Shop. A different artist is featured each week from mid-June through Labor Day weekend.

Watch our unique Meet the Artist series to learn about past Visiting Artists here.

Sibylle Peretti

Sun, 1 Jun, 2014 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

German-born Sibylle Peretti lives and works in New Orleans. Her latest series, titled Thaw draws inspiration from children's fairy tales, especially the European folktale of the Snow Children. She describes this fairy tale as one of transformation. "The melting snow produces life; these new children reveal themselves innocently awakening. With the Thaw comes the vision and the vision is the source of the work." Peretti's residency is supported by Fuel Their Fire and is generously sponsored by Gail Weyerhaeuser.
