Find directions and current hours right here.

Schack Art Center is an admission-free visual art center in downtown Everett, WA. Our exhibit galleries are open six days a week and feature diverse artwork from locally and internationally known artists, as well as emerging young talents.

From the main gallery, visitors are able to watch professional glassblowers at work in our state-of-the-art hot shop while admiring the current exhibit.

The hot shop is a popular attraction for all ages, but our 19,000 s.f. facility also has seven other specialized production studios to accommodate a wide array of mediums including silversmithing, lapidary, fused glass, flameworking, stained glass, painting, drawing, and printmaking.

We hope you’ll be inspired to learn a new skill in an upcoming art class or Make it Now glassblowing event. Browse our current offerings online to find art classes for youth, teens, and adults.

And, don’t forget to stop by our gift shop. The Gallery Store carries glass, ceramics, jewelry, cards, and other gifts of art by more than 175 Northwest artists.
