Following the success of the first Glaziers’ Art Fair, the Glaziers’ Company will be staging a second fair at the Glaziers Hall, London, which will be open to the public 25 26 October 2016. The fair will showcase the work of the company’s artist-members in stained glass as well as other media.
Last year, some fifty artists showcased exhibits at the Glaziers Hall, and the fair was attended over its two days by over 400 members of the public, who were able to buy and commission pieces. Representatives from the London Stained Glass Repository and the Ely Stained Glass Museum were also on hand with displays and information about their work and the history of stained glass. The Glaziers’ Company hosted an evening reception, attended by Sheriff of the City of London (Alderman Charles Bowman) and the Mayor of Southwark (Dora Dixon-Fyle MBE). Sponsorship for the event was generously provided by Windsor Glass.
Master Glazier Duncan Gee said: ‘I am delighted that the Company is hosting the second Glaziers’ Art Fair in 2016. It provides an excellent opportunity to publicize the talents of our architectural glass artists and designers to a wider public and is an important addition to our programme of events. All are welcome and I would encourage as many people as possible to come along.’
The Glaziers’ Art Fair website is currently being updated. The call for exhibitors (together with rules for entry) will be launched later this spring and posted on the Glaziers’ Art Fair website.
