St. Petersburg’s Duncan McClellan Gallery offers a weekend of glass art

There’s ‘Sweater Weather’ at Mize and a lecture at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, too.

ART GLASS WEEKEND: DUNCAN MCCLELLAN GALLERY

Make it a weekend of glass art at the Duncan McClellan Gallery. Pop in during Second Saturday ArtWalk and view “The Surreal and the Fanstastic, Part II” featuring work by visiting Seattle artists Jamie Randall and Mark Clarson as well as John Miller, artist and head of the glass department at Illinois State University in Bloomington-Normal. Get a different feeling from Randall and Clarson’s collaborative work, a series of hand-engraved glass decanters based on extinct birds, pictured. Miller and Randall will give glassblowing demonstrations from 6:15-8 p.m. Cash bar and live music from the Henry Ashwood Jazz Project. Free. 5-9 p.m.

Return on Sunday for Art Glass Afternoon, which features a glassblowing demonstration and illustrated artists’ talk with the visiting artists. Enjoy a beverage and roam the sculpture garden. Free. 11 a.m.-3 p.m. 2342 Emerson Ave. S, St. Petersburg. Toll-free 1-855-436-4527. dmglass.com.

HOT THREADS: SWEATER WEATHER

In the latest themed group exhibition at Mize gallery, artists will render sweaters on wooden cutouts of the garment. “Sweater Weather” opens Friday with a reception. We’re probably a few months away from wearing an actual sweater, and many of us only actually have one. It makes the case for collecting a sweater-themed art piece. You get to admire it all year. Artists include Saumitra Chandratreya, Macy Eats Paint, Julia Collver and Chad Mize. On display through Nov. 30. Free. 6-10 p.m. 689 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, St. Petersburg. chadmize.com.

LEARN SOMETHING: MASTER LECTURE SERIES

The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts’ current exhibition is “Women Are Beautiful” by Garry Winogrand, who was photographing the streets of New York in the 1960s-'70s, when the times were a-changin'. His work was considered controversial. Learn why when Francesca Bacci of the University of Tampa discusses how Winogrand’s work is still relevant in today’s sociopolitical climate. 6-7 p.m. Friday. 400 N Ashley Drive, Tampa. (813) 221-2222. fmopa.org.
