Rutgers professor Pat Kettenring conceived the organization and was the Executive Director and creative inspiration for GlassRoots for more than a decade.

Glass can transform the lives of adults as well! Our talented Teaching Artists and Visiting Artists offer 'art for art's sake' classes and workshops on evenings and weekends in all of our glass shops. Artists can lease the use of our facility and equipment for production of their work. And items made by our talented staff, visiting artists, and our students are available for sale or commission in our Studio Gallery and online.

Christine Wagner and Stan Sudol, the directors of Guerilla Galleries (GuGa) form a partnership comprised of artistic dedication, strong work ethics and an altruistic belief that creation is a necessary component of the human spirit. They are approaching the gallery in a new fashion by taking the underground art scene and making it far more accessible, and hopefully beneficial, for both artist and community.

GuGa was an idea born of artists who wished to exhibit their own art as well as that of other emerging artists, in a new and innovative manner. They hope to slowly and steadfastly promote artistic expression and expansion wherever they are welcome and supported to do so. They work to create, market and execute high impact exhibitions and provide a venue for burgeoning new talents to showcase their creativity and abilities.

The gallery is a sound stage upon which the house residents can imagine their months of creativity displayed from beginning to end. A true partner in the exhibit process, the artists are commissioned with a curatorial role that gives the visitor a 360 degree view of the creators vision. Far from an original white walled space, SPH is a home for experimental installations, avante-garde performance art and a myriad of media art. With an ever evolving pool of artists from various cultural and personal experiences SPH is a true melting pot of artistic expression.
