I just read an interesting article in today's Star Tribune about Stillwater-based stained glass artists Michaela Mahady and John Pietras that got me thinking ahead to June and this year's White Pine Festival — as if the glorious (and long-overdue) spring weather weren't enough to do that.
Anyway, the connection is that organist Lynne Davis is set to give a lecture on the art of the Chartres Cathedral, including its magnificent stained glass windows, at the festival. We plan to follow that talk with a tour of great stained glass windows in Stillwater. I wouldn't be at all surprised if some of Mahady and Pietras' work was featured in the tour.
I'd love to tell you more, but I can't until we finalize and release our full festival schedule, which should be any week now. Naturally, I'll keep you posted.
