Chihuly Venetians: From the George R. Stroemple Collection 

When: July 1-Oct. 15 2016

STARTING FRIDAY, JULY 1

CHIHULY VENETIANS

Whereas many glassblowers content themselves with bongs and lampshades, Dale Chihuly has taken the technique into the upper echelons of fine art with his often large-scale sculptural fantasias. George R. Stroemple's private collection of Chihuly's works is currently on tour, and the Captain White House in Graham is the only place to see it on the East Coast. The collection focuses on Chihuly vessels inspired by Venetian art deco vases from the 1920s and '30s, almost fifty of which are in the exhibit, arrayed around the centerpiece of the Laguna Murano Chandelier, a tour de force made of more than 1,500 pieces. Raise a glass to Chihuly through Oct. 15. —Brian Howe

CAPTAIN WHITE HOUSE, GRAHAM10 a.m.–6 p.m. Tues.–Sat./1 p.m.–6 p.m. Sun., free, www.alamancearts.org
