Dr Beverley Sherry, Hunters Hill Trust Member and author of Australia’s Historic Stained Glass will be giving a presentation on the contribution of Scottish artists to the establishment and development of stained glass in Australia. Scotland was a leader in the nineteenth-century revival of stained glass, and artists who trained there, especially in the Glasgow area, emigrated to Australia and established firms of their own. The talk will be illustrated with stained glassby Lyon & Cottier (Sydney), Ferguson & Urie (Melbourne), as well as examples of stained glass in Scotland.
