Artist Profile - Jack Archibald
Jack Archibald works in stained glass, but he considers his medium “public art.” His glassworks have been commissioned for city halls, public libraries, universities, colleges, transportation centers, State Patrol headquarters, elevator towers, arts commission headquarters, courthouses, historical societies, airports, train stations, visitor centers, community centers, and public schools. Most of his work is large, ranging from 10 foot by 10 foot entryways to 70 foot by 20 foot monumental murals. His artworks have been installed from Florida to Alaska, Utah to Washington.
Archibald received a 2019 GAP Award to help pay for materials to fabricate and install a 7 foot by 21 foot stained glass mural in the soon-to-be-built Island County Administration building, which will be the signature artwork for the edifice.
