We have to admit that when we heard about a "glass show" in Galveston, our thoughts immediately turned to dodging all those broken bottles on the beach. Fortunately, "Texas Juried Glass" features works other than the shattered Budweiser vessel variety. As part of Galveston's regular ArtWalk, the show spotlights 29 artists from around the state. Works include traditional blown and stained glass, charcoal drawings on blown glass, stacked glass jars with funky contents, and even glass blocks with video monitors, neon, aluminum and Plexiglas. Kick some glass from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Exhibit runs through April 17 at the Galveston Arts Center, 2721 Strand, Galveston. For information, call 409-763-2403 or visit www.galvestonartscenter.org.
