I am very much ready to celebrate the Centenary of the British Society of Master Glass Painters! The BSMGP has been operating since 1921 and is a forum for all lovers of stained glass, promoting “the highest standards of design, craft and creativity”.
Early this Centenary year, all members – including myself who has been a member for many years – were invited to create an exhibition panel measuring 30cm x 30cm (outside size). There was no theme and no restriction on techniques or materials, provided glass was involved. Entry for the virtual exhibition was free for members and all work was to be new.
First, an online exhibition was set up (https://www.bsmgp.org.uk/news-events/events/exhibitions/).
A touring exhibition September 2021 – August 2022
In August I received the news that the panel I created was selected by the BSMGP for the touring exhibition that will include a minimum of five venues (dates and venues subject to change). Couleurlive was among the selected exhibitors and my artwork will now be exhibited in the following very special renowned sites.
