Chihuly Venetians at the Alamance Arts Center

I was in North Carolina visiting family and we took a trip to Graham to see the Chihuly Venetians on display at the Alamance Arts Center.

These were mainly smaller works. Here are some photos from the show.

He did have quite a few pieces with cherubs on them, which seemed very Italian to me, but not really my taste. It seems like making glass cherubs would be very difficult.

 There were two larger pieces, this one hung from the ceiling.

And this free-standing piece.

They had a nice video about making the glass which was shown on the open porch.

This was a nice show as you could get really close to the pieces and see all the detail. The art center used to be a house, so it is an intimate setting for the work to be shown.  The show closes on October 15th.
