Many voices First International Symposiom, Barcelona

Stained glass quarterly, fall 1990

It was clear from many presentations that contemporary artists have developed great sensitivity to this complex issue of a modern aesthetic within a traditional craft. Flexibility was highly evident. Jean Dominique Fleury (Toulouse, France) spoke of the both the installation of the modern window in ancient setting, the new architectural installation, and the gallery object, contexts within which many artists work today.

It was clear from such presentations that painting, in both restoration work and contemporary expression, remains a dominant aspect of European work in glass.
