Murano Midwest Gallery and Gardens, 8N665 Edgewood Road in Campton Hills, hosts "Tall or Small? Exploring Scale in Art Glass Sculpture" from 2 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 20; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 21-22.

It can be hard to tell from a photo what the true size of an art glass sculpture is. Some of their largest pieces are often assumed to be just inches high and and some small sculptures can look quite large and majestic! Until you see them live it can be challenging to get a good sense of perspective and scale.

They have selected a variety of both quite "Tall" and quite "Small" sculptures that might deceive the eye in a photo and must be seen in person to appreciate.

It will feature works by Adriano Dalla Valentina, Afro Celotto, Alexis Silk, Ben Tullman, Cristiano Toso, Mariano Moro, Pete Patterson, Paull Rodrigue and more.

Additional showings are available by appointment.

Admission is free. Visit muranomidwest.com/exhibitions/.
