New work of art - The New Room, Bristol
There is a new work of art in development for the new Heritage Lottery-funded visitor centre at the New Room in Bristol which opened in the summer of 2017.
Destined to be inset over the entrance door leading from The Horsefair into the centre, the window will take the form of a triptych – a three-panel work of art – which will illustrate the remarkable lives of John and Charles Wesley.
The window has been created by artist Andrew Taylor, a Fellow of the British Society of Master Glass Painters, who has been working with stained glass for 25 years and has been responsible for the design and installation of more than 60 new church windows.
Methodist historian and volunteer Warden of the New Room Gary Best said: “We have an important story to tell and our new window will provide not just a beautiful and eye-catching focus for the atrium of our new visitor centre but a vivid way of showing why the story of John and Charles Wesley is still so important today.”
