Printmakers

Forty printmakers will exhibit more than 100 pieces of art at the Glenview Mansion Gallery. The works feature many different techniques involving carved stamps or burning drawings onto metal. The local and regional artists will be selling some of their art. The exhibit will feature an artist's talk at 7:30 p.m. today and a guided tour Friday. .

The exhibit runs through Aug. 30 at the Glenview Mansion Art Gallery at 603 Edmonston Drive in Rockville. Free. Call 240-314-5006.

Italian glass

Italy comes to Baltimore in the shape of intricate hand-blown glass from Murano, brought to America by Hazel and Hilly Greenstein, owners of ZYZYX! Each of the 28 pieces is one of a kind, using every color available. The artists used a hand-grinding technique that creates optical illusions and interesting textures in the glass.

The show runs through Sept. 7 at ZYZYX! at 1809 Reisterstown Road, Suite 127 in the Festival at Woodholme shopping center. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Free. Call 410-486-9785 and ask for Hilly Greenstein.
