An exhibition of fused glass by Althea Braithwaite

8 June – 31 July

Free entry to exhibition and Museum shop.

To celebrate the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership’s (OWLP)OuseFest, taking place 20 July – 2 August 2015, The Stained Glass Museum will host a small exhibition of Fen landscapes in glass by local glass artist and illustrator Althea Braithwaite. The Fenland landscape has provided much inspiration for local artist Althea Braithwaite, who says “I have always been fascinated by the beautifully coloured shadows which light makes as it shines through glass and the wide land and skyscapes of the fens make excellent subjects for pictures in glass.”
