Friday's art themed article: HISTORY OF STAINED GLASS

Share |
As a student, I remember learning about the history of paintings and sculptures, but it seems as though some of the other disciplines got "lost along the way". I recently found the article The History of Stained Glass on the website maintained by the Stained Glass Association of America. I love reading about how the history of arts is affected by the politics, economic and social situations of the time. A warning, pack a lunch before you tackle this article! It's a very long and inclusive history; it's definitely not a quick read. Overall, it was interesting to learn about how current events impacted how stained glass was made and shared with others.

I am an accredited member of teh SGAA. I am glad that you liked the article. The SGAA is having a conference next week in Kansas City, MO. If you are in the area, you should come. The SGAA also give scholarships. If you are interested in studying about stained glass, you should apply.
