To celebrate our centenary year and the International Year of Glass in 2022, we have organized an exhibition of stained glass panels made by our members. Due to the pandemic, our exhibition is currently online at https://www.bsmgp.org.uk/news-events/events/exhibitions/.
However, we want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to experience this colourful, magical art form in person after these dark, troubled times. With this in mind, the Society is planning to bring its members' panels to everyone with a touring exhibition, starting at the Stained Glass Museum at Ely Cathedral in early autumn 2021. Other confirmed locations so far are Winchester and Wells cathedrals, Swansea Waterfront Museum and the Ruskin Glass Centre at Stourbridge, with more in the pipeline for 2022.
We would like to show as many panels as possible and visit as many locations around the UK as we can on this tour. We are therefore appealing for sponsorship towards the cost of exhibition stands and other setup costs, and with this appeal we are hoping to raise more funds so we can afford to build more stands. The estimated costs for manufacture of stands and transportation between sites will be approximately £15,000.
The more you support us, the more panels we will be able to display and the more venues we can visit!
