Indulge your senses and increase your knowledge at the
Friends of St. Paul's Tiffany Conference,
"Tiffany Artistry: Stained Glass, Sanctuary Design and St. Paul's"
on Saturday, April 20, 2013.
The entire interior of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Troy is a rare and spectacular example of Tiffany design: not only the windows, but the chandeliers, glass mosaics, tile work, glass jewelled altar rail, baptistery of wood and plaster filigree, decorative stencilling of ceiling, walls and organ pipes, pews, and support members are part of a wholly conceived Tiffany concept.
Headlining the day is the internationally renowned Curator of American Decorative Arts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen.
She will speak on "A Religion of Beauty: The Art of Louis C. Tiffany".
Also presenting will be Tony Anadio, professor at Empire State College; Julie Sloan, glass conservation and restoration expert, author, and adjunct professor at Columbia University; and Ned Pratt, St. Paul’s Historian, President of the Turpin Bannister Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, and former adjunct Professor at Sage College.
