British Society of Master Glass Painters Centenary Exhibition
17 Sep. 2021 - 31 Oct. 2021

Event category: Exhibition

Price: Free
Location: South-west Transept, Ely Cathedral
This touring exhibition of stained glass panels celebrates the Centenary of the British Society of Master Glass Painters (BSMGP), founded in 1921. Members of the society were asked to create a new exhibition panel measuring 30cm x 30cm on any theme of their choice.

Over 80 artists from across the UK and overseas contributed to the exhibition. This collection of artworks, created especially for their centenary year, celebrates the unique art of glass. The panels 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 with a few recurring themes, such as the environment, the pandemic and the beauty of nature. The exhibition builds a fascinating insight into the concerns of glass artists a hundred years after the society was established to help stained glass remain relevant.

The Stained Glass Museum in collaboration with Ely Cathedral will launch the Centenary tour. Selected works will be on display in the south-west transept of Ely Cathedral, by the entrance to the museum between 17 September and 31 October 2021. Entry to the exhibition is free.

Founded in 1921, the British Society of Master Glass Painters is the UK's only organisation devoted exclusively to the art and craft of stained glass. Membership is open to everyone and they offer a professional qualification for accredited Associates and Fellows of the society.
