$20 Thu. 420 VIP Party; $5 Sat. opening reception; free otherwise
Art, Galleries

Much like an elegant wine glass or an intricate beer stein, a well-made glass pipe can be a functional work of art. Revelers at Gamut Gallery will be able to see this demonstrated, as glass artists will be showcasing their often complex, sometimes humorous, and strikingly beautiful sculptures, pipes, and jewelry design. The show, curated by local glass artist RepoMn, will feature a variety of pieces. There are floating pigs, an odd robot, and a sweet-ass cobra bong. The 420 VIP preview party on Thursday, April 20, costs $20, and runs from 8 to 11 p.m. Sarah White with Mica May will provide tunes, with fire dancers and glassblowing demonstrations adding to the festivities. The opening reception from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, April 22, will include performances by Loom In Essence and Nicky Boy Floyd. Admission is $5.
