POSTPONED: March Winter Warmer featuring Jen Elek


Mar 27, 2020

Jason Lee Middle School
6:00pm - 9:00pm


In order to encourage safe choices, we have made the tough decision to postpone our March 27 Winter Warmers event. Our hope is to reschedule an event with artist Jen Elek and our youth in the Spring.

We are monitoring the situation our community faces with the coronavirus and will provide updates related to program and event changes as we implement safety measures.

As the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department states on their website“The risk of COVID-19 in Washington is increasing. Public health is identifying more cases in the state. This suggests COVID-19 is spreading in Washington.”

Learn more about how Hilltop Artists is responding to the coronavirus here.

The below information describes the event we cancelled. We are including it as reference.

Hilltop Artists presents Winter Warmers, a series of evenings where renowned artists provide inspiring demonstrations, with the assistance of our students, in our Jason Lee Hot Shop.

Join us as we enjoy some savory soups, share some warm beverages (non-alcoholic), and make s’mores over the glory hole, all while watching the magic of glass happen.

In March, artist Jen Elek will join the Hilltop Artists to collaborate.

Jen Elek is a Northwest studio artist and educator working primarily in glass, neon and steel. Jen uses blown glass to create sculptural objects that display the materials ability to reflect, magnify and represent bold color. Traditional and innovative processes combine in Jen’s work to create colorful landscapes of glass.

Jen teaches workshops and exhibits her work internationally. She’s taught at The Pilchuck Glass School, Penland School for Crafts in North Carolina, and Urban Glass NY, among others. Elek recently joined the board of trustees of Pilchuck Glass School. She shares a studio with husband Jeremy Bert in South Seattle.

Thank you to the Tacoma Rainiers for donating the door prize which is a President’s Seats Summit Club Experience for 6 and a gift bag.
This experience can be used for a Rainiers game or a Tacoma Defiance Soccer match! 

Thank you to Happy Belly and Infinite Soups for providing nourishing soup and bread to warm our bellies.
