Journeys - Teithiau
17 May 2021 - 25 Jun. 2021


Event category: Exhibition

Price: FREE (Friends: FREE)
Location: The Stained Glass Museum, South Triforium, Ely Cathedral, Ely, CB7 4DL
In 2018, Jonathan Cooke and friends held an exhibition Fire, Light and Shade at Ilkley's iconic Manor House. In 2019 Jonathan was one of the invited exhibitors at the highly acclaimed Inspired by Burne Jones event at the Grange Gallery, Rottingdean, renewing friendships with other stained glass colleagues. These serendipitous connections were the background against which plans were conceived for this new exhibition.

Journeys: to Wharfe from Thames and Tawe - Teithiau: I'r Wharfe o'r Tafwys a'r Tawe

By the time it became clear that CV19 was going to disrupt the project, some the artists had started work, developing their ideas and realising designs on the theme of "Journeys": with the world almost at a standstill, the theme seemed more than ever to capture the imagination.

The original exhibition and associated events will be rescheduled as soon as this proves practicable and, with this very much in focus, some of the participating artists are creating a virtual evolving gallery of work in progress, with a vernissage planned to coincide with this original exhibition.

The finished pieces will form an exhibition that will be on display here at the Stained Glass Museum from March 2021

Suitable for ages: All
