First Thursday: Boise Art Glass

Classy Glass.

by

Boise Art Glass, long a fixture at the corner of Sixth and Myrtle streets, is celebrating the grand opening of its new location at 1124 W. Front St., and it's throwing open its doors to the public for an evening of food, drink, music and--most important--art.

From 5-10 p.m., Thursday, June 5, Boise Art Glass and Fire Fusion Studio will offer free admission, glass crafting demonstrations, live jazz, beer, wine, food from Barbacoa and Le Crepe, and the chance to make some glass art of your own.

For $40 per piece, you can craft your very own glass cup in a 30-minute session, or, for $10 per piece, make an enameled pendant in a special one-hour class. Advanced signup required for the classes; call 208-345-1825 to get your name on the list.

Beyond the entertainment, this First Thursday is your chance to pick up some of the gallery's one-of-a-kind pieces for 10 percent off.
