From a “desire to create a meditative experience” with glass, a group of artists have been hard at work on the new exhibition “Lux Vetro.” As the Latin name meaning “light glass” suggests, these works combine intricate, colorful glasswork with various types/sources of light. For the philosophy junkies out there, it’s interesting to note that part of the inspiration for the show also derives from Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave.” Just as that ancient Greek genius wondered how to eschew the dominance of the five senses and grasp at essential truth, these works call us to contemplate if the beauty they possess is a trick of the strategic lighting or a fundamental quality of the altered rock. Free, 6-10pm Fri, Aug. 4, Black Moon Gallery, 1420 S. Alamo St., Suite 106B, (512) 294-4268, facebook.com.
