Glass blower's art
Have you watched an artist create a beautiful piece of glass? This weekend, art lovers can observe the artistic process when the Corradetti Glass Studio and Gallery hosts an open house. There will be glass-blowing demonstrations, and pieces by gallery owner Anthony Corradetti will be on display. His work includes jewelry, Christmas ornaments, paperweights, trays, dishes and larger pieces.
The open house will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The studio is relocating next month to Hampden.

A new show featuring two local watercolor artists goes up Saturday at the Monkton Community Arts Center.

Another Baltimore County native, Terri Gorgone, will show abstract landscapes and florals done with watercolors and pastels.
There will be an opening reception featuring two classical violinists and light refreshments from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday. The exhibit will be up through Jan. 10.
The Monkton Community Arts Center is at 1901 Monkton Road in Monkton. Call 410-472-0470. Visit www.mcac online.com. Hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursdays-Mondays and by appointment.
Artist Jessie Lehson makes paper out of leaves, weeds and grass that she finds in a patch of land near her house. Last summer cicada carcasses turned up in this area, so Lehson preserved the wings and incorporated them into a paper sculpture that will be on view in the Spare Room on Saturday. The installation will be up for just one day. It can be viewed from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The Spare Room is an installation space in a private home. It has been available to artists for shows once a month since September of last year.
The Spare Room is at 3720 Greenmount Ave. E-mail email@example.com for more information. - Annie Linskey
