Frans Wesselman is a painter, etcher and stained glass artist. Wesselman initially trained to be an art teacher, and studied printmaking and photography at art college in the Netherlands before moving to Ireland and then London. He is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers.
He first began making stained glass just before the Millenium after a visit to Salisbury Cathedral where he saw Gabriel Loire’s Prisoner of Conscience window which left a great impression. He found the process of making stained glass panels not too dissimilar to printmaking, as both require thinking in layers.
Much of Wesselman’s artwork has a strong sense of narrative and combines biographical experiences with studies from natural life, as well as popular religious and historical themes. This exhibition brings together a collection of prints and stained glass panels on the theme of ‘small adventures’.
The exhibition runs from 22 July until 2 September and in the Museum Shop (free entry*)
