Glass enthusiasts are invited to Playing with Fire


The ArtsQuest Glass Studio presents the Glass Blast Exhibition and Auction featuring works of art from its diverse group of studio members.

The annual event, running through May, features many different techniques ranging from traditional blowing techniques to more modern sculpting processes.

This year’s Glass Blast is also an auction. All of the works featured are made with glass in the Lehigh Valley and are available for purchase via the auction website. Help support both ArtsQuest Glass Studio and local artists from the community by bidding on your favorite work in the show. Then, participate in the closing night party on Saturday, June 1 at 7 p.m. in the Banana Factory.

Playing with Fire: A Glass Blast Exhibition and Auction is free to the public through the end of May; however, the Glass Blast closing party on June 1 will be a ticketed event, officially ending the exhibition and auction. For information on the closing party, visit
