TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – A museum in Ohio’s “Glass City” will host an exhibit highlighting the opaque and translucent qualities of glass.

The exhibit opens Thursday in the new $3 million gallery at the Toledo Museum of Art.

The exhibit is called “Color Ignited: Glass 1962-2012” and shows off objects that display the evolution of studio glass.

“Color Ignited” is the inaugural exhibit in the Frederic and Mary Wolfe Gallery for Contemporary Art.

Also on tap this week in Toledo: 1,200 artists and connoisseurs will gather Wednesday through Saturday for demonstrations and talks at the Glass Art Society’s 42nd conference.

The (Toledo) Blade says it’s the third time the group has held its annual meeting in Toledo.
