Darrell in Venice at age 9!

As a young child I lived in Europe – that’s us sitting outside of St Mark’s Square, Venice, in 1964!  There were many exciting things for a young child to see and do but nothing like the artists working with liquid fire on Murano. Over the years, we have been back many times…the amazing artistry, wonderful people – and incredible glass art!

We fell in love with Venice and Murano Glass; and then the wider world of fine art glass sculpture. Now we’re seeing truly great work right smack in the heart of the American Midwest!

Over the last decade, as we watched conventional galleries where we once shopped close all around us, we thought it was time for a new art gallery model and established Murano Midwest Gallery and Gardens. Our online presence allows us to serve the entire US while our non-traditional retail model keeps costs down and reduces prices.

The best glass artists are melding authentic techniques that are centuries-old with fresh inspiration. They work with a mastery of traditional forms and techniques that still looks modern – but without being too self-conscious about it.

All of this is unique, original art by authentic, world class artists – all at fair, no haggle prices!
