This off-the-beaten path art glass gallery and studio is one of the artistic high points of the Tampa Bay area and, indeed, all of Florida. Don't miss the opportunity to see the work of world class glass artists and sculptors and, if you are lucky, you will get a chance to meet the joyful Duncan and see one of his... More

Every second Saturday Duncan opens his gallery/home for us to see beautiful displays of glass art. I live here and haven't missed a Second Saturday opening in 6 months! I bring all of my friends and visitors for an eve of art, wine, food and music--all for no admission!

The work on display (from more than 50 global glass artists) rivals the contemporary glass exhibit at the Corning Glass Museum. Well-worth making the short drive from downtown St. Pete to visit.

Such works of art are to be seen at this gallery. Each piece exhibited is a work of art. They also offered a show making the beautiful glass vases. Very interesting. Worth visiting.

Duncan McClellan Gallery is a small, beautiful gallery. Many artists are represented with a variety of styles. The work is incredible, things that seem impossible to do with glass. There is a hot shop demonstration. The team made a punch bowl that took several intricate steps. If interested they offer glass blowing classes. I recommend a visit to this gallery.

This place is awesome, filled with beautiful glass art from many of the best artists working in glass today. If you go on the second Saturday of the month, the hot shop is open for observation and whatever glass artists are in residence will be there to talk about and demonstrate their art. This happens the second Saturday of every... More

I spent many hours at the gallery seeing wonderful pieces of blown glass. I got to witness glass blowing first hand from the start to a beautiful large bowl. Each step was explained and the two working together to make this beautiful bowl were like a beautiful dance. Each knew what their partner needed. It was also amazing to hear... More

This glassworks is like a museum. Many different artists have their incredibly beautiful work displayed in several rooms. There are large outdoor decks with gardens with more glass displayed and sculptures, and many sofas on the decks. It's a beautiful venue, not to be missed.

Not your typical gallery- a beautiful, huge space replete with glass art from artists around the world. Duncan is usually present and happy to talk about the artists, his citrus grove and lush gardens all onsite with a multi-thousand square foot terrace that can be rented for events. Demonstrations can often be seen with live glassblowing in their equally impressive... More
