Things to See
Bella Forte Glass Studio 405.285.8800 | bellaforteglass.com The one-of-a-kind art-in-progress creators are between studios at the moment, but once they get resettled in a new location they’ll be well worth tracking down when you have a hot date. Like, 2,100 degrees hot. It’s a visual spectacle to see master glass blowers fashion fine art for your liking, and you can commemorate the occasion with a delicate piece of hand-blown art created just for you.
[Artspace] at Untitled Gallery 1 N.E. 3rd St., OKC 405.815.9995 | artspaceatuntitled.org Get up close and personal with art and artists at “A Taste of Art.” Food and beverage pairings are selected to complement the topic, which often focuses on travel to far-flung corners of the globe. If you want to get your hands dirty, sign up for a printmaking workshop – if you visit the gallery this month, you can explore a huge selection of results from the 2014 Monothon printing exhibition. Visit the website to view and register for upcoming classes and events.
