PVAC thanks Connie Grant and Penny Waller who curated an incredibly beautiful exhibit Luminescence: Works in Glass that showcased glass artists from the greater Monterey and San Francisco Bay Areas. We would like to acknowledge all of the volunteer hours they and their support team put in to this exhibit. 


Again, we thank our exhibit sponsors Heil Properties, Annieglass, and East Bay Batch Color for funding the exhibit.
