'Harmony’: Dylan Thomas International Glass Award Touring Exhibition

Free entry to exhibition. Catalogues available from our Museum Shop.

This exhibition of contemporary glass art has been organised as part of the recent centenary celebrations to mark Dylan Thomas’ birth. Artists worldwide were invited to submit glass panels in response to the word ‘Harmony’. The Dylan Thomas International Awards for Glass and Poetry were organised and curated by the University of Wales Trinity St David (UWTSD), supported by the British Society of Master Glass Painters (BSMGP). We are delighted that, after touring Swansea, Cardiff and London, the HARMONY exhibition will be on display at The Stained Glass Museum, Ely, from 2 March until 4 June 2015. The exhibition features works by: Joanne Blaylock, Catherine Brown, Marion Davies, Maria Fagan, Rita Griskonyte, Wadia Haidar, Kate Henderson. Ruth Taylor Jacobson, Matthew Le Breton, Lydia Marouf, Michelle Mativi, Ruth Morriss, Linda Norris, Rachel Phillips, Mare Saare, Kathy Shaw-Urlich, Catherine Shilling, Wendy Stone & Siân Williams Davies.

Fen Landscapes in Glass
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.”
