A slideshow from the BBC Wales website - In Pictures: Swansea Olympic 'Games' glass art display
This is related to the exhibit Games, a glass art exhibit currently at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, Wales, UK. This is another in a string of excellent group exhibitions from the the British Society of Master Glass Painters.
I'm not a big sports enthusiast, but I like to see the occasional themed exhibit like this. I only wish there was a more comprehensive website dedicated to the exhibit, with all the pieces shown and artists identified and background info given, etc. I haven't found much about it on my own. On searching I only found a website for a UK stained glass artist named Dave Griffin and his panel for Games, called Hide and Seek, which I like.
This turns out to be only one in a series of glass art exhibits centered around the 2012 Olympic Games. More on that and other aspects of this coming in part 2...Posted by Tom at August 6, 2012 06:36 PM
