Stained Glass at an Intersection – Church, Gallery & Museum
Speaker: Matthew Reeves
An expert in lost medieval stained glass from France, Matthew Reeves is a curator who now works at the Sam Fogg gallery in London. His lecture will explore the relationships between the Church, commercial art galleries and museums. Matthew has been working with museums to help raise the profile of stained glass, something we are all keen to achieve.
Do join us on Zoom for a visually rich evening as Matthew shares his expertise and love of Medieval and Renaissance stained glass. Places are limited so book now!
In the first in a series of webinar presentations, the Society is pleased to announce that the chairman of our Conservation Working Group Steve Clare will speak about the fascinating painted glass of the 18th century, and the transitional period into the early 19th century. The speaker has unrivalled experience in the conservation of glass of this period; the techniques and methods of important figures such as Peckitt, Pearson, and Eginton will be discussed in detail, with superb images taken during live conservation projects.
The subject is the history of monumental stained glass in the United States, especially its patronage; the civic and religious institutions that saw leaded and painted windows as essential to their purpose. It is hoped that this overview will be useful to individuals interested in American history, religion, ethnic communities, architecture, social change, and preservation, as well as art.

In stained glass we often see he same stale images repeated again and again. I stumbled upon this "behind the scenes" story of the making of several images to promote the National Geographic film "Killing Jesus". The process is fascinating and fresh.
