A pot­pourri of items from the county

Lovers of glass art have a dou­ble treat in store in Nor­folk this month. The Sains­bury Cen­tre is stag­ing a spec­tac­u­lar ex­hi­bi­tion across the build­ing ex­plor­ing the stained glass of Brian Clarke

Clarke is cel­e­brated as the great­est stained glass artist in the world to­day and the cen­tre­piece of the ex­hi­bi­tion will be 30 stained glass screens which the artist has pro­duced over the last three years. In his ca­reer he has pushed the bound­aries of stained glass both in terms of tech­nol­ogy, and its po­etic po­ten­tial. His rep­u­ta­tion is based on ma­jor in­stal­la­tion projects all over the world, as well as in­di­vid­ual works.

Mean­while, at River­side Art and Glass, Wrox­ham, The Con­tem­po­rary Glass So­ci­ety East­ern Hub is ex­hibit­ing works of glass art from a dozen tal­ented artists, in­clud­ing Morag Reekie, Sue Purser Hope and Cathy Milling­ton. Brian Clarke: The Art of Light runs un­til Oc­to­ber 14 at the SCVA. CGS ex­hi­bi­tion runs from July 11 to 25.
