Stained Glass Reception from Amherst News-Times via FB

The annual stained glass window mosaic reception and silent auction will be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 16 at the Firelands High School library.

FHS students have completed mosaics and invite the public to view and bid on select windows.

Nineteen sophomore through senior art students used salvaged windows to build original designs in donated stained glass. This project is supported by donations from Oberlin artist Sheree Ferrato, art parents Thomas Biery, Gerald Workman, Joan Myer and Dale Ohle, and the Home Depot.

Refreshments will be served and the student artists will demonstrate the process. The silent auction of the works will raise funds for the art students and the visual art department.
