Throughout history, artists have worked with like-minded individuals as collectives, collaborators and mentors. When artists working in different genres and unrelated forms collide and spark new ideas, the end result can be breathtaking. The exhibition Confluence embraces the results of the collective exploration of glass by pairing experienced glass artists with those who are less familiar with the medium.
Artists: Annette Blair, G.W.Bot, Paul House, Jeremy Lepisto, Peter Nilsson, Nell, ?NOT, Tom Rowney, Luna Ryan and Nick Stranks

Through the interplay of colour, light, narrative and architecture, artists have made deeply moving and technically brilliant stained glass windows. This complex art form that dates from the Middle Ages has been modified by contemporary glass artists, resulting in innovative approaches to the medium.
