Event Details

ADFAS October LectureADFAS Shoalhaven invite you to their final lecture for 2018, which will be presented by Martin Ellis, an experienced curator, lecturer and broadcaster.

In the early years of the 20th century, a new generation of young women artists emerged triumphantly into the art world. Many found a natural home in the field of stained glass – an art form deadened by the increasingly formulaic products of the large, commercial companies.

They were an extraordinary generation: fiercely independent, champions of women’s rights and gender politics, suffragists and challengers of the political establishment. They created some of the most beautiful windows of the 20th century, bringing a richness and sensitivity to the art. The talk celebrates the work of an extraordinary generation that both enriched and changed the nature of stained glass in Britain.
