British Society of Master Glass Painters Centenary Exhibition
June 24 @ 10:00 am - July 10 @ 4:00 pm
Centenary Touring Exhibition
Coming to Oxford from the cathedrals of Ely, Winchester, Wells and Worcester, this touring exhibition of stained glass panels celebrates the centenary of the British Society of Master Glass Painters. Over 90 artists from across the UK and overseas contributed to the exhibition. The tour highlights 60 of these panels that celebrate the unique art of glass. The works have been created using both traditional and modern glass techniques, demonstrating the extraordinary range of stained glass currently practiced.
The artists explore a variety of subjects such as the environment and the beauty of nature. The exhibition portrays an understanding of the concerns of glass artists a hundred years after the society was established to help stained glass remain relevant today. Displayed in the Chapter House of Christ Church Cathedral, this exhibition will also give the visitor the chance to explore the Romanesque doorway and interior.
Founded in 1921, the British Society of Master Glass Painters is the UK’s leading organisation devoted exclusively to the art and craft of stained glass.
The display will be open whenever the Chapter House is open. If you would like to visit specifically to see the exhibition please book via eventbrite to ensure that you arrive when the Chapter House is open. Please enter via Tom Gate on St Aldates.
