Splendor in the Glass is the theme of an auction of hand-painted glasses by local artists — Angela Anderson, Laura Evans, Paula Horton, Steven Huyler, Jean Kigel, Gyotoku, Annabel Parker, Andres Pineda and Margaret Saca — which will be the feature at a gourmet dinner to be held at Penobscot Language School, 28 Gay Street in Rockland, on Thursday, March 28, at 5:30 p.m. The dinner starts at 6 p.m., and the auction of glass items and wines will follow dessert.

The menu for the five-course dinner with wine includes a scallop or vegetarian appetizer; cream of garlic soup; arugula and tomato salad; an entrée of beef, chicken or portobello mushroom Wellington served with potato pavé and baby peas; and a gluten-free chocolate cupcake with crème de menthe mousse. The meal will be prepared by chef Leslie Filinow, owner of Earth Candy café and the Earth Flow and Fire yoga studio of Rockland. 

Individual seats are $65 per person, or $500 for a table for eight. Reservations may be made at www.penobscot.us or by calling 594-1084.
