Savvy sculptor that he is, Howard Ben Tre knows the power of paradox. His seductive cast-glass forms crackle with sensory contradictions.

The simple message glass sculptor Howard Ben Tre learned three decades ago is that people connect through a primitive, unspoken language. His work speaks volumes. So does he, with a handful of high-tech gadgets. He is dressed entirely in black, from his wool sweater and denim pants to his shiny shoes; his long, wavy gray hair is tied back and he's wired to his cell phone through an earpiece, taking notes on his Palm Pilot.

Fine art has long been known as artwork that can only be admired. The Orange County Museum of Art hopes to change that notion with its second annual Pacific Craft Show, beginning today and ending Sunday. The Newport Beach crafts sale features stylish yet functional artwork in traditional mediums such as glass, metal, fiber, ceramic and wood. More than 60 local and national artists will showcase works made specifically for the event. Proceeds will benefit museum programs.

Dale Chihuly and Loretta Hui-shan Yang are two artists with Hollywood-sized personas. Critics have likened Chihuly, Seattle's superstar of glass sculpture, to an improvisational movie director, coaching his crew as it blows his oddly surreal shapes. And Yang, Taiwan's modern glass master, is a former movie star.

All social roads led to Rome when South Coast Repertory staged its annual black-tie gala on Saturday. The Roman Affair-themed launch of Orange County's society season featured everything from muses making surprise appearances during the al fresco cocktail reception to gala chairwoman Barbara Roberts opening her remarks to guests with, "Buona sera, friends, Romans and countrymen." It was that kind of night. Everywhere guests looked, they beheld the Romanesque.
