I just saw a show last night where all these glass artists were blowing glass competitively, Dale Chihuly overseeing it all like some sort of oversized neo-pirate. Cool stuff, especially the end result, like much of what's up at The Arts Center in Glorious Glass: Transluscent and Opaque. The new exhibit spotlights a few dozen glass artists, many from Seattle and Chihuly included. The exhibit opens tonight from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14-Dec. 24, St. Petersburg, free admission.
