Holidays at The Bookstore
Did you know The Bookstore at Chihuly Garden and Glass isn’t just about books? The shop, located just inside the exhibition’s lobby, celebrates Dale Chihuly’s work and his passion for supporting the creative spirit of the Pacific Northwest.
Each holiday season, The Bookstore works with a local artist to offer hand-blown ornaments to benefit a local arts organization. The 2016 series features the work of artist Daryl Smith and 30% of each purchase will support TeenTix, a local arts access program for teenagers. Founded by Seattle Center, TeenTix partners with more than 60 regional arts organizations to offer teens discounted tickets to ensure that all young people have equitable access to art and feel empowered to take an active role in shaping their arts community.
With more than 20 years of experience, Smith has played a significant role in influencing the Seattle art community. In addition to making his own glass art, he has worked closely with Dale Chihuly for nearly two decades and other major influencers working in glass today. Smith has also worked as a gaffer at Pilchuck Glass School, an international center for glass art education founded by Dale Chihuly, Anne Gould Hauberg and John H. Hauberg.
