First Class Glass
This spring, Schantz Galleries ProjectSpace: Boston (211 Newbury St., 413-298-3044, schantzgalleries.com) gives visitors and native Bostonians alike the opportunity to gaze upon the brilliant glass works of renowned Italian master Lino Tagliapietra in the show A Golden Age of Glass. On display until May 22, the exhibit boasts elegant creations crafted from glittering, copper-infused avventurine glass—both blown and fused—by one of the best glass artisans in the world. The Muranese maestro himself, who is celebrating 70 years perfecting his art, appears at the
May 14 opening reception, which takes place from 4–6 p.m., and is also in town to collaborate with the renowned
MIT Glass Lab in Cambridge May 16–20.
