One hundred panels for our 100th birthday!12 May 2021
Our Centenary exhibition reaches a milestone as artists continue to submit work.
Helen Robinson AMGP sent in the 100th panel for our online exhibition, a beautiful depiction of the Shropshire hedgerows close to her new home. Each panel tells a story and together they build a fascinating insight into life in 2021. Helen will receive a free Webinar link of her choice by way of congratulations.
We have been delighted with the entries so far with many interesting and varied responses to our Centenary year. Due to difficulties in accessing studios and materials during Lockdown we have decided to keep the online exhibition open for submissions until the end of the year. We hope that all our Members who create work will contribute so we can capture a snapshot of stained glass at this moment in history.
Each panel should be 30cm x 30cm (outside size). There is no theme and no restriction on techniques or materials, provided glass is involved. Entry for the virtual exhibition is free for Members and all work should be new, created specially for the Centenary year. We welcome new Members and you can join here (£45 a year or £30 concession).
Plans are being made to take some of the panels on tour later in the year. Ely Cathedral will launch the tour followed by Winchester Cathedral. The panels will look stunning in the historic buildings and Andrew Taylor FMGP has designed some exhibition stands that can be used for these and future exhibitions. If you would like to sponsor a display stand then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Selection for the touring exhibition will take place in the summer and there will be an entry fee for all selected work.
Now, as some people have entered two or even three panels, can we reach a new target of 100 artists submitting work? What is your panel going to explore? We look forward to receiving your entry here.
