Stained Glass Exhibition

Saturdays, 29 November & 6, 13 and 20 December 2014, 10.00-13.00 at:

Stained Glass Centre, St Martin-cum-Gregory parish church, corner of St Martin Lane & Micklegate, York

This exhibition showcases work by the York artists Harry Stammers (1902-1969), Harry Harvey (1922-2011), Sep Waugh, Ann Sotheran and Helen Whittaker, and is a rare chance to see a recently-conserved piece by eighteenth-century artist William Peckitt.

The exhibition has been curated and mounted by a volunteer team of History of Art students from the University of York. Also on display are the results of new historical research on the fabric of the church and the parishioners commemorated in it, undertaken by a graduate student archaeologist and interns funded by the Institute for the Public Understanding of the Past (IPUP). The exhibition complements the outstanding stained glass in the church itself, underlining the unbroken continuity of glass-painting practice in the city of York.
